    Kontron’s 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processor boards deliver massive improvements


    The ideal choice for upgrading nearly all existing x86 platforms



    The highly integrated 2nd generation of Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processors will populate all major standard embedded form factors, ranging from small-form-factor to high-performance designs. In addition to extended scalability, optimized power consumption and improved graphics performance, target applications will benefit from the new processors’ high level of integration, including memory and PCI Express controllers as well as processor graphics.

    The new platforms based on 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors will also incorporate Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX). This accelerates scalar-based operations required for imaging applications in industrial automation, medicine and military projects as well as floating-point intensive applications, such as high-performance embedded computing (HPEC). Additionally, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 automatically shifts or reallocates processor cores and processor graphics resources to speed up performance, optimizing a workload to give users an immediate performance boost whenever possible based on thermal headroom.

    To unleash the full potential of the new processor architecture, OEMs can now benefit from these enhancements on a wide portfolio of standardized and proven platforms from Kontron to minimize design risk and speed up time-to-market.  Kontron offers the 2nd generation processor on Computer-on-Modules, Embedded Motherboards, CompactPCI and VPX
