Motherboards suit medical and more


Kontron is expanding its portfolio of compact, energy-saving, made-in-Germany motherboards with its K3931-N mITX. The boards use Intel’s Core i3 and N-series (Alder Lake N) processors in the power range 6W to 15W. The motherboards offer scalability regarding performance, power consumption and cost within one product design.

Applications include casino gaming, digital signature, kiosks, POS/POI, ticketing, industrial and medical.

Equipped with UHD Gen12 graphics, they use efficient cores based on the Xe architecture. In combination with up to 32 execution units, accelerated deep learning inference and media processing for various edge applications are supported by Intel AVX2 and Intel Deep Learning Boost.

With up to three display ports (V1.4a), one embedded display port (V1.4b 4K) and one dual-channel LVDS (24-bit), the boards support a maximum of three independent displays with 4K resolution. In addition to interfaces such as GPIO, four COM ports and four USB 3.2 Gen2, the Alder series has expansion slots for PCIe and two M.2 ports.
