Based on the Mobile Intel GM45 chipset, the Mini-ITX, Flex-ATX and ATX Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards offer up-to-date interface technology, like PCI Express x16, without neglecting embedded designers’ needs. They still carry, for example, 4 serial interfaces alongside the 12 USB 2.0 interfaces. The embedded motherboards also offer more PCB layers than conventional motherboards, in order to achieve excellent signal qualities and optimize electromagnetic compatibility. Furthermore, the Kontron KTGM45 embedded motherboards feature solid capacitors, giving an extended lifetime and little wear-out even at high temperatures. An extensive range of interfaces and top fl exibility for connecting monitors via S-video, VGA, LVDS, DVI and HDMI make the embedded motherboards suitable for computation-intensive visual computer systems. The Kontron KTGM45 ATX, Flex-ATX and Mini-ITX are supplied with comprehensive Board Support Packages for Windows Vista, XP, XP Embedded and Linux.
