Optimized Performance simply "Out-of-the-Box"
Single Board ComputersSingle Board Computers (SBCs) are standard, off-the-shelf computer boards that come in various industry conforming form factors. They can deliver customized features for the total solution when integrated with expansion boards as PC/104.
Advantages of SBCsSBCs are designed to work right out-of-the-box, thus optimizing development time so the final application can achieve an extremely quick time to market. Kontron SBCs are highly integrated with all key system interfaces and functionalities already designed in to the board. This means that only application-specific I/O needs to be integrated for the complete solution. This is made easy with standard accessories and contributes to the ultimate in fast system set-up – no specialized R&D knowledge and development time required. Just plug and go!
Kontron's SBC Computer FamiliesKontron offers four main families of small form factor single board computers. These include the JRexplus family of 3.5-inch SBCs, and the brand new Pico-ITX family of 2.5” SBC based on Intel Atom CPU. JRexplus 3.5-inch SBCs support PCI-104 compliant expansion boards.
3.5" SBCs: JRexplus
The Kontron JRexplus family of 3.5-inch SBCs delivers computing performance suited to fit a wide range of embedded single board computer applications from diagnostics tools to box PC control systems. These highly integrated SBCs make designing simple with family consistent features including expandable system memory SDRAM sockets, onboard connectors for up to 6 USB 2.0 devices, single and dual Gigabit Ethernet offerings, integrated graphics and audio capabilities, system monitoring, and much more. And with all standard accessories available right away there's no need to worry about moving from in-lab platform evaluation to full design production. Try a JRexplus 3.5-inch SBC today and kick start your embedded design.
2.5” SBCs according to PICO-ITX-Standard
With the Pico-ITX form factor, Kontron now supports a new definition of small (100 x 72 mm), powerful and very cost effective SBCs. The pITX-SP, Kontron’s first SBC based on this specification, features the Intel® ATOM™ Z510 / Z530 processor and US15W System Controller Hub, together with multiple I/O options.

Intel® Atom™ E6x5C processor with integrated Altera FPGA marks a new era in embedded computing
Infotainment systems have evolved into smaller, more space-constrained designs, and require improved graphics capabilities, long-term availability, and cost-effective embedded computing solutions.
Expandable and Flexible Train Management System with Remote I/O
For their new generation of rail cars, CFD has decided to equip their new trains with a fully electronic command control instead relays or industrial PLC. Electronic equipment include the TMS (Train Management System), the Human-Machine Interface and Remote I/O. The proposed solution is an open and flexible platform allowing for example the realisation of passenger information system tightly coupled with a local system according the geographical specialties of this specific region. Based on open standards like VME for the hardware and ISaGRAF (IEC61131-3 open to C language) for the software tools, the system offers to the OEM all the resources needed for the development of sequential (hvacs, lights…) or communication (intercabs, traction…) algorithms.

Motion Controllers for NC Machines and Robots
ACD Antriebs- technik, part of the ACD Group based in Achstetten, Germany, which employs 300 people, uses JRex single-board computers from Kontron AG in their motion controllers. The company relies on the open 3.5 inch board standard to offer an integrated, finely-tuned range of products. With a large choice of processors on otherwise physically identical mini-SBCs, the JRex family is ideal for their design.

Take a look at this fun design with JRex. Our application is an important part in the "preventive management". We provide with our MOMOKI (Mobile Monitoring Kit) a solution to survey all the conditions you are interessted in like Temperature, Current, Voltage, movement alarm unit and access control. We are sure you will have some more creative designs for us as well.
Unmanned Avionic Surveillance
Kontron and Florida-based Imperx, a market leader in mobile imaging, have come out with a new proven platform for the imaging industries, also used in Unmanned Avionic Vehicles. Based on Kontron’s 3.5" CPU board JRex-PM with an Intel® Pentium® M processor and the Imperx FrameLink- JFLEX™ card, this ready-to-use bundle can be installed by providers of image analysis solutions as well as OEMs and systems integrators in machines and systems. The extremely robust and reliable bundle is currently being used in US Navy Unmanned Avionic Vehicles (UAV) purposes and other governmental entities for surveillance and homeland security purposes.
