Kontron VX3106

Ultra Lower Power SBC, Air Cooled & Conduction Cooled Builds

Manufacturer: Kontron
Kontron VX3106

Featuring the NXP Layerscape LS1046, a high performance 30K DMIPS quad-core processor based on an ARM A72 architecture clocked at 1.2GHz, Kontron's VX3106 is the ideal building block for specific embedded applications such as firewalling or more general-purpose computing in a low power envelope.

Compatible with the complete Kontron 3U VPX ecosystem, this ARM architecture SBC is the natural companion of X86 3U VPX SBCs to build heterogeneous and redundant computer architecture required by safety-critical applications.

Long term programs: high reliability and low Total-Cost-of-Ownership

Kontron provides a Long Term Supply program service (LTS) for over 15 years. A comprehensive Health Management is optionally available to support easy field maintenance. All this makes the VX3106 an ideal candidate for long term programs such as Transportation or Energy infrastructures or Defense applications
