Review Display Systems (RDS), the embedded systems and displays solutions provider, has announced the introduction of two new mini-STX format motherboards from Kontron.

The Kontron K3921-N and K3921-H support the Intel Core i3 and Intel Alder Lake-N series processors with the latest UHD Gen12 graphics based on the Intel Xe architecture.

The K3921-N industrial motherboard is equipped with two DisplayPort v1.4, one DisplayPort via front USB type-C, an embedded DisplayPort and a dual-channel 24-bit LVDS interface which enables support for up to three independent displays with 4K resolution (2 x 4K UHD and 1 x FHD).

The K3921-H mini-STX offers a cost-optimised version of the K3921-N with slightly reduced functionality. It is available with an Intel N100 processor from the Alder Lake-N series and also offers two DisplayPort v1.4, one embedded DisplayPort and one USB Type-C (Alt mode). As with the K3921-N, the K3921-H can support three independent displays with up to 4K resolution.

Both motherboards share common features including support for up to 32GB of the latest DDR5 4800 memory technology, 2 x GbE LAN (1 x 1GbE, 1 x 2.5GbE), 2 x COM ports and adjustable CPU TDP make the board suited for a wide range of industrial applications.

Both boards also feature two M.2 connectors, for storage and Wi-Fi, as well as other interfaces such as GPIO and USB 3.2 Gen2. In addition, both boards feature up to nine USB ports (USB 3.2 Gen1/2, USB 2.0) and offer a dual power input (12v and 19-28v).

Designed and manufactured in Germany, these compact and reliable motherboards combine improved levels of performance, with functionality and cost-of-ownership in a compact mini-STX format.

Both are intended for applications in industrial automation, medical equipment, digital signage, point of information and gaming. The Kontron mini-STX boards are designed and developed for continuous 24-hour operation.

The Kontron K3921-N and K3921-H mini-STX motherboards are now available from Review Display Systems.
