Quanmax Launches Kaby Lake Based Mini-ITX Motherboards for Graphics-intensive Embedded Applications
Quanmax, a well-known embedded computing technology provider, is pleased to introduce its MITX-KLS0 Series Mini-ITX industrial embedded motherboards designed for integrators to easily develop their own OEM systems with shorter time to market and lower development efforts.
Firstly, MITX-KLS0 Series is built based on Intel's 7th-generation Core Processor Family. Compared to the counterparts with previous-generation processors, MITX-KLS0 Series delivers up to 65% better graphics performance when playing 4K and 3D video contents. It is an ideal embedded platform for a variety of graphics-intensive multi-tasking heavy-workload applications for digital surveillance, retail, healthcare segments. The series provides two variants for different application scenarios and / or purchase budget, including budget-friendly models with Intel H110 chipset and business-oriented models based on Intel Q170 chipset.
The board provides flexible I/O configuration via rear-panel ports and onboard connectors. It is equipped with one LVDS connector for system developers to build a panel PC with additional one DVI-D and two DP ports for external displays. Alternatively, box PC developers can locate a panel-mount VGA port on the chassis to replace the unused LVDS connector. For multimedia applications with Hi-Fi surround sound systems, MITX-KLS0 Series enables an optical S/PDIF output connector besides the most commonly used audio jacks. Developers can flexibly configure other I/O ports as well depending on application scenarios, for example, from six up to twelve USB ports for USB device connection, from two up to six COM ports for serial device connection, and up to eight digital signals via DIO pins for device / signal control.
As for storage and expansion, MITX-KLS0 Series is equipped with four SATA interfaces for massive data storage. Models with Q170 chipset supports RAID storage configurations for data redundancy, performance improvement or both. The series has one PCIe x16 and two mSATA / mPCIe sockets, allowing flexible storage / functionality expansion according to application requirements, such as SSD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G / 4G WWAN, graphics performance upgrade, video capture, network expansion, serial / USB port expansion, professional audio effects, etc…
Finally, MITX-KLS0 Series integrates latest TPM 2.0 security chip, providing more secure hardware-based protection to sensitive applications and data than a software-only solution. Developers can use it to build a more trusted system.
