Kontron introduces the PICMG 1.3 System Host Board Kontron PCI-761, a slot card-sized industrial server board that is equipped with the Intel Q57 Express chipset. The CPU board delivers state-of-the-art server performance with intelligent security features, inexpensive system administration, and leading-edge I/O-technology in the smallest possible space.
The long-term available Kontron PCI-761 offers high scalability from the Intel Core i3 processor up to the Intel Core i7 processor with four 3.06 GHz cores and up to 8 GB DDR3-1333 memory for maximum server performance and bandwidth. System designers benefit from the board’s extremely high reliability with an MTBF of approximately 100,000 hours, which guarantees high availability and low maintenance costs. Furthermore, Intel AMT and TPM technology provides Intel vPro capable management and security enhancements that simplify administration of systems based on the Kontron PICMG 1.3 System Host Board PCI-761. With Intel AMT 6.0, tasks such as installation and maintenance of operating systems, BIOS configuration, and hardware diagnosis can be carried out remotely over the network without the need for additional remote management hardware. With Intel Trusted Execution Technology and the onboard Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2), the Kontron PCI-761 provides high system security, for example, due to the hardware encryption of all transmitted data. Target applications for the Kontron PCI-761 include asynchronous realtime applications in measurement and testing equipment or for image processing or process control in market segments such as medical technology.
