Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), has introduced a new Single Board Computer (SBC) in a 3.5-inch form factor. The 3.5″-SBC-VR1000 is based on the AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 and R1000 processor series and is optionally available with the SoC V1605B, V1202B, R1606G or R1505G. With superior 4K playback and a fanless, low-power design it is an energy-efficient, compact solution for highly computationally-intensive edge computing and graphics applications such as digital signage, digital casino gaming, kiosk, retail, banking, education, medical imaging and edge computers in industrial control and automation.
The new SBC from Kontron supports 4K ultra-definition video output, including AMD Radeon™ Vega GPU. Thanks to one LVDS, one DP and one HDMI 2.0 connector each, up to three monitors can be controlled independently. Latest generation interfaces provide faster data transfer rates between memory, data storage and peripherals. The V1000 models feature four, and the R1000 models two rear-mounted USB 3.1 ports. These are supplemented by four, respectively six USB 2.0 ports. The audio interfaces include two speaker out, one line-in, one line-out and one microphone input..
- 1x LVDS, 1x DP, 1x HDMI 2.0 for triple display support
- 2x GbE LAN for Ethernet
- Up to 4x USB 3.1, up to 6x USB 2.0, 2x RS232/422/485, 2x RS232 for peripherals
- 8-bit DIO for device / signal control
- 2x SATA 3.0, 1x mPCIe, 1x M.2 Key M for storage & expansion
The two DDR4 2400 SO-DIMM sockets offer up to 32 GB of RAM. In addition to two RJ-45 LAN ports (Intel® I210-AT, Intel® I211-AT), the 3.5″ SBC-VR1000 is equipped with a half-size mini PCIe slot. Further equipment includes two SATA III connectors and an M.2 socket (Key M), on which a NVMe SSD can be installed. The latter features lower latency, a compact form factor and high reliability.
A TPM 2.0 security chip is integrated to protect applications and licenses. Series production is planned for the end of Q2 2020.
