Kontron presents new AMD-based motherboard

Kontron, a supplier of IoT/embedded computer technology (ECT), is expanding its portfolio of industrial motherboards with the D3714-V/R mSTX.

This is Kontron's first completely new motherboard development following the acquisition of Fujitsu's industrial motherboard division.

The product in the space-saving mini-STX format supports up to four independent displays in 4K resolution making it suitable for applications such as digital signage, kiosks, medical displays, thin clients and ultra-small industrial PCs. A matching SMARTCASE for universal use is available for the two D3714-R versions in the form of the S511 housing kit.

The motherboard is based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 platform including AMD Vega graphics and covers numerous application scenarios with a single system design. It is equipped with up to three DisplayPorts (V1.4, including DP++ support) and one HDMI port (V2.0b). It also offers dual channel LVDS (24bit), an embedded DisplayPort V1.3 (4K), 8 bit GPIO & HD audio onboard.

Other interfaces include USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 (Gen1/Gen2) as well as SATA III. An M.2 SSD interface (Key-M: 2230/2242/2280) enables the connection of SSD storage.

In addition, the motherboard supports M.2 WLAN/Bluetooth (Key-E: 2230); the AMD-integrated TPM V2.0 enables a high security standard for trusted computing.

Depending on the graphics performance requirements, three different motherboard versions are available. The V2 variant is equipped with the AMD V1605B processor (Quad Core 2.0/3.6 GHz), GPU @ 1.1 GHz, eight compute units and supports four displays. The R2 variant is based on an AMD Embedded R1305G (Dual Core 1.5/2.8 GHz), GPU @ 1.0 GHz, three compute units and supports three displays. The R1 version uses an AMD R1102G (dual core 1.2/2.6 GHz), GPU @ 1.0 GHz, also three compute units and supports two displays.

Complementing the R1 and R2 variants of the motherboard, the SMARTCASE S511 is available as a housing kit, which is suitable for operation at temperatures from -10 °C to +40 °C. The ultra-compact case measuring 36 x 147 x 165 mm is equipped with USB ports at the front and rear and can be used both horizontally and vertically.
