Kontron Releases PC/104-Plus Single Board Computer

By DE Editors

The Kontron PC/104-Plus single board computer (SBC) MICROSPACE MSM-eO offers original equipment manufacturers AMD embedded graphics for PC/104-based SBCs. With long-term availability, the Kontron MICROSPACE MSM-eO is based on the accelerated processing units of the AMD Embedded G-Series, which, along with a 64-bit CPU, also integrates a programmable graphics unit and a DDR3 memory controller.

Using the Kontron MICROSPACE MSM-eO and Kontron’s PC/104 portfolio of expansion boards, OEMs can implement small form factor applications with a higher level of performance.

The Kontron PC/104-Plus SBC MICROSPACE MSM-eO integrates the single-core AMD T44R processor with 1.2 GHz together with an AMD Radeon HD6250 graphics unit. It supports 3D graphics libraries such as OpenGL 3.2 and DirectX11. Additionally, the integrated unified video encoder takes the load off the processor when displaying high-resolution videos (1080i/p).

With the support of DirectCompute and OpenCL 1.1, OEMs can also implement GPGPU applications with the MICROSPACE MSM-eO in the low-power segment, using the computing power of the graphics unit for parallel data processing.

The Kontron MICROSPACE MSM-eO offers software support for Windows, Linux and VxWorks, and others on request. Pre-production models will be available in August 2011.
