Kontron meets new challenges in Embedded Computing with NXP Layerscape® Arm-based Processors

Augsburg, Germany, November 29, 2017 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), today announced a range of Single Board Computers (SBCs) featuring the NXP Layerscape® Arm-based processors to meet the growing needs for high performance embedded computing, low power dissipation and supply longevity. The new SBC product family will benefit from multi-core scalability and will be available in various versions ranging from low power dual-core up to eight-core processor variants and beyond on VME and VPX architectures. Orders for the first Kontron Layerscape products will be shipped by March 2018.

The Layerscape family challenges established solutions in very compute-intensive Industrial, Aerospace and Defense applications, enabling developers of High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) systems.

“The performance scaling of the Layerscape processors, and the product longevity commitment from NXP, will make our new SBC family meet all the new expectations of embedded applications” said Laurent Remont, CTO of Kontron S&T, “Our standard VME and VPX products are the best upgrade of legacy products, ranging from a less than 10W and 5kDMIPS version to a more than 45kDMIPS at less than 26W.”

“The combination of Kontron’s SBC platforms, Layerscape processing family and the ARMv8 ecosystem will drive the next generation of innovation in the embedded market. We are pleased to work with an industry leader like Kontron to speed time to market for our mutual customers.” said Noy Kucuk, Vice President, Product Management NXP.
