Kontron: new boards and modules powered by Intel Atom C3000
Kontron announced that the new Intel Atom Processor C3000 product family will power new Kontron boards and modules to be released in late 2017. Products featuring 3rd-generation Intel Atom Processor technology will comprise the Kontron COM Express Computer-on-Module COMe-bDV7 in the basic type 7 form factor and a Kontron Mini-ITX motherboard.
With these boards Kontron's customers will be able to take full advantage of Intel's latest Intel Atom entry server platform offering scalable compute performance from dual-core to 16 cores with high bandwidth memory and I/O capacity for low power fanless systems. Supporting up to four 10GbE Ethernet interfaces, the Kontron boards are designed for applications such as real-time Industry 4.0 fog servers, micro servers, network appliances, as well as Industrial, Energy, Robotics and IoT implementations with demanding network requirements.
The upcoming modules and boards based on the new Intel Atom Processor C3000 product family will offer optional support for Kontron's Security Solution APPROTECT. It is based on an integrated security chip from Wibu-Systems which in tandem with a specifically developed software framework protects applications, as well as all data processed and stored on the device. Additionally, Kontron's APPROTECT Licensing enables new business models such as 'pay per use' or time-based trial versions, as it can be used to easily enable or disable features via a predetermined set of variables.
