Mini-ITX Industrial Motherboard mITX-CFL-S: powerful in graphics and computing power

Augsburg, Germany February 12, 2019 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), is introducing the mITX-CFL-S, a new industrial motherboard in the Mini-ITX form factor based on the latest eighth generation Intel® processors. It is available with either Intel® Core i or Intel® Xeon® E3 processors. This makes the board suitable for extended embedded applications, including infotainment, industrial automation, process control, storage server for small businesses, entry-level workstations for mobile or cloud applications, and media transcoding or edge computing in the IoT environment. In addition to a large number of peripheral interfaces, the mITX-CFL-S has many storage and expansion options, including two SATA slots, one PCIe x16 slot, three M.2 slots each with one Key M, Key A and Key B.

The advantages of the mITX-CFL-S are diverse: In addition to processors of the Intel® Core i or Intel® Xeon® E3 series, it also features the Intel® C246/C242/Q370 chipset. Additionally it has 2x DDR4 U-DIMM sockets and supports ECC. It also offers various interfaces, such as 1x eDP, 1x HDMI, 2x DP for video output, 3x GbE LAN for Ethernet, up to 6x USB 3.1 and up to 4x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0 for USB Device Connection, 2x RS232/422/485, 2x RS232 for Serial Device Connection, 1x 8-bit DIO for Device/Signal Control. The slots 1x PCIe x16, 1x M.2 Key M, 1x M.2 Key A, 1x M.2 Key B allow a multitude of expansion possibilities. In addition, the mITX-CFL-S industrial motherboard supports TPM 2.0. 

Intel® UHD Graphics P630 (Intel® Xeon® CPU) or Intel® UHD Graphics 630 (Intel® Core CPU) provide an increase in graphics performance. To connect up to three displays simultaneously, the mITX-CFL-S has the following display interfaces: 1x eDP 1.4 (4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz), 1x HDMI 1.4 (rear, 4096 x 2160 @ 24 Hz / 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz), 2x DP (rear, 4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz). Audio output is possible via Codec Realtek ALC662 and 1x line-out (by header), 1x mic-in (by header), 1x S/PDIF (by header).

Kontron's industrial motherboard contains a variety of firmware including BIOS (AMI uEFI BIOS w/ 128 Mb SPI Flash), Watchdog (programmable WDT to generate a system reset event), H/W monitor (input & core voltage, CPU & system temperatures), Real Time Clock (chipset integrated RTC), TPM support (Infineon SLB9665 TPM 2.0). 

The small mITX-CFL-S with 170mm x 170mm is very compact, but still powerful. Cooling is provided by two fan connections, which allow use at ambient temperatures from 0°C to approx. 60°C. Security is provided by Infineon's TPM 2.0 chip, which is standard on all Kontron motherboards, and the optional Kontron APPROTECT security solution. The security chip from Wibu-Systems in combination with a suitable software framework guarantees protection of IP rights as well as copy and reverse engineering protection. Kontron APPROTECT Licensing also enables new business models such as 'pay per use', time-limited demo versions or activation or deactivation functions.
