Kontron pITX-APL 2.0

Kontron expanded its product line in the Pico-ITX form factor with the pITX-APL V2.0 embedded motherboard, which is equipped with Intel Atom® E39xx and Intel® Celeron® N3350/J3455 two- and quad-core CPUs and features an improved performance with an extended range of functions. The pITX-APL V2.0 offers up to 16 Gbytes of hard-soldered LPDDR4 memory, extensive interfaces, such as two 1GB Ethernet ports and a second graphics interface, as well as the option of retrofitting user-specific functions via an M.2 interface. A mini DisplayPort and HDMI provide flexible graphics options. This makes the motherboard ideal for use in industrial client applications as well as in kiosk, infotainment, digital signage and POS systems.

The new pITX-APL V2.0 with its compact dimensions of only 100 x 72 mm impresses with improved graphics and computing performance and at the same time low power consumption of only 6 to 12 watts at 12V DC input voltage. It features an LVDS 24Bit Dual Channel, an M.2 slot with a USB 3.0 and microSIM interface as well as a half-size mPCIe slot and a uSD/uSIM combo slot. A TPM 2.0 security chip enables the protection of applications and licenses.

Like all Kontron embedded products, the pITX-APL V2.0 is characterized by the long-term availability of all components - a fact that is particularly beneficial for very complex application scenarios with many devices running in parallel.
