New compact motherboards feature high performance and functionality
Ismaning, Germany, July 18 2023 – Kontron, a global leader in IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), presents its latest motherboards K3921-N mSTX and K3921-H mSTX. The compact and reliable boards are "Made in Germany" and offer outstanding performance as well as functionality in a compact mini-STX format. They are ideally suited for applications in industrial automation, medical, digital signage, KIOSK, POS/POI and casino gaming. Samples will be available to customers from November 2023.
The industrial motherboard K3921-N mSTX supports the powerful Intel® Core™ i3 processors and Intel® N-series processors (Alder Lake N) with the latest UHD Gen12 graphics based on the Intel® Xe architecture. The successor of the popular D3544-S (Intel® Gemini Lake platform) is equipped with numerous features such as two DisplayPorts v1.4, one DisplayPort via front USB type-C, an embedded DisplayPort and a dual-channel LVDS (24bit). Up to three independent displays with 4K resolution (2x 4K and 1x FHD) can thus be supported. The K3921-N mSTX will be available for at least seven years and comes in four versions to meet individual requirements. Features such as 2x GbE LAN (1x 1GbE, 1x 2.5GbE) incl. teaming support, 2x COM ports and adjustable CPU TDP make it ideally suited for various industrial applications. The board features two M.2 connectors (for storage and WiFi) as well as other interfaces such as GPIO and USB 3.2 Gen2.
The K3921-H mSTX is the cost-optimized version of the K3921-N mSTX and meets individual requirements with slightly reduced functionality. It is equipped with the Intel® processor N100 and also offers 2x DisplayPort v1.4, 1x eDP and 1x USB Type-C (Alt mode). The board features a GbE LAN (without teaming support) and an M.2 Key-M connector with expansion option for PCIe and SATA. Via the USB Type-C on the front, the K3921-H supports PowerDelivery Sink mode, USB 3.2 Gen1 and DisplayPort AlternateMode (DPoC). In combination with the compact SMARTCASE™ S501, the board is the perfect solution for Thin Client applications. The K3921-H mSTX is available for at least four years.
Both motherboards share common features such as support for up to 32GB of DDR5 4800 memory, dual power input (12 / 19-28V), M.2 Key-M (2230/2242/2280) and an M.2 Key-E slot (for WLAN-BT / PCIe and CNVi). In addition, both boards feature up to nine USB ports (USB 3.2 Gen1/2, USB 2.0). They are designed for 24/7 continuous operation in an extended temperature range (K3921-N: -10°C to +60°C, K3921-H: 0°C to +50°C). A matching SMARTCASE™ S501 will be available at the same time.
