Pico-ITX embedded SBC

24 June 2009 Computer/Embedded Technology

The new pITX-SP from Kontron is a low power (5 W) and highly integrated standard embedded SBC (single board computer) designed in accordance with the Pico-ITX form factor, measuring 10 x 7,2 cm.

The board offers all interfaces required for the development of small x86 embedded designs and ultra mobile devices, making it suitable for a wide range of applications in the gaming, digital signage and POS/POI kiosk sectors. It is also an attractive x86 alternative to RISC-based handheld sized solutions, with the added advantage of a wide software base and simple application development.

The SBC is based on the Intel Atom Z5xx processors up to 1,6 GHz and the Intel System Controller Hub US15W with up to 1 GB of DDR2 RAM. The pITX-SP’s feature set includes one x Gbit Ethernet, four x USB 2.0, up to two SATA interfaces, a parallel IDE44 interface as well as a socket for MicroSD cards, one x DVI-D (up to 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz) as well as one x Jili30 (single channel, up to 1280 x 1024 @ 85 Hz) and a backlight inverter enables connection of all types of panels. In addition, the board offers shader-based 2D and 3D graphics, 256 MB of graphic memory as well as an integrated decoder for MPG2 and H.264. Audio devices can be connected via line in, line out and MIC to the integrated HDA controller. Customer-specific expansions are supported via 1 x SDIO pin header and 1 x digital IO (4 bit).

The pITX-SP supports Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded and Linux.
