Kontron's ATX, µATX and mITX motherboards supporting the 12th generation Intel Core i processors will soon receive a major BIOS update to the 13th generation. Equipped with Intel's Performance Hybrid Architecture, they are supposed to enable higher performance.
All boards belong to a product family with synergetic BIOS, uniform drivers and comprehensive tool set for customer-specific settings (default settings, thermal management, boot logo, etc.). They are suitable for IoT applications in the fields of industry, medicine, kiosk, digital signage, POS/POI, video surveillance and casino gaming. According to Kontron, they will be available from Q2/2023.
The compact Mini-ITX motherboards »K3833-Q« and »K3832-Q« are equipped with the Intel Q670E chipset, which offers extensive features such as vPro Manageability, Stable Image (SIPP) or RAID. They have Dual LAN interfaces incl. teaming as well as TSN and real-time support (TCC), a PCIe x16 Gen 5 expansion slot, USB 3.2 Gen2 interfaces, an M.2 Key-M and Key-E slot as well as two DIMM sockets for DDR5 memory.
The ATX motherboard »K3851-R« is based on the Intel »R680E« chipset and is particularly suitable for applications with a high demand for PCIe expandability (also PCIe 5.0). Features include three network ports (2x Intel i225 and 1x i219LM GbE vPRO controller incl. AMT & Teaming) and dual M.2 Key-M PCIe/NVMe SSD expansion slots.
The »K3841-Q«, »K3842-Q« and »K3843-B« µATX motherboards each have two M.2 connectors and an integrated TPM 2.0 module. All models support Intel 12th & 13th Gen Core i3/i5/i7/i9 processors with a maximum CPU TDP of 125 W. The K3841-Q µATX motherboard has three LAN interfaces, including an 219LM GbEthernet controller with manageability features and two latest generation I225LM with 2.5 Gbit Ethernet ports. The K3842-Q µATX board, equipped with the Intel »Q670« chipset and up to two LANs, is particularly suitable for use in high-end desktop PCs or for semi-industrial applications. The K3843-B µATX board is equipped with the »B660« chipset and has features such as cTDP, DDR5, four DisplayPorts and four PCIe Gen5 interfaces.
