Shrinking Computers


The need for embedded system portability is driving the evolution

and volume of board designs from http://us.kontron.com/products/boards+and+mezzanines/embedded+motherboards/atx+motherboard/ http://us.kontron.com/products/boards+and+mezzanines/embedded+motherboards/atx+motherboard/" >ATX (305x244mm) sizes down to the http://us.kontron.com/products/boards+and+mezzanines/embedded+motherboards/miniitx+motherboards/ktus15mitx++16.html http://us.kontron.com/products/boards+and+mezzanines/embedded+motherboards/miniitx+motherboards/ktus15mitx++16.html" >mini-ITX

(170x170mm) form factor. Just as mobile Internet devices (MIDs) are beginning

to proliferate in consumer markets, we are also seeing the need for small embedded

devices expand to support real-time decision making with business intelligence.

Whether a health care professional is accessing tests and records, or a field service

representative is accessing troubleshooting data, the needs for data, communications

and a small platform device are immediate.

New products from Intel and Kontron enable embedded computer

embedded processing power. When utilized on Kontron's new http://us.kontron.com/about-kontron/news-events/kontron+nanoetxexpresssp+first+credit+card+sized+computeronmodule+with+intel+atom+processor.html http://us.kontron.com/about-kontron/news-events/kontron+nanoetxexpresssp+first+credit+card+sized+computeronmodule+with+intel+atom+processor.html" >nanoETXexpress

computer-on-module, which packs low power processing performance and high-end

graphics capabilities, as well as PCI Express and Serial ATA interfaces on a

a 12-layer stacking PCB design,ensures signal integrity, reduces radiation, improves

signal quality, and aids in the decoupling of the power bus, all resulting in high quality

electromagnetic compatibility needed to support new Intel Atom based small, low

power system designs.

Kontron's high quality electromagnetic compatibility, lowpower processing performance

and flexible interfaces allows the http://us.kontron.com/about-kontron/custom-solutions/embedded-systems/ http://us.kontron.com/about-kontron/custom-solutions/embedded-systems/" >custom systems designer to best take advantage of

the Intel Atom processor's capabilities. Kontron would like to know which of the capabilities

of the Intel Atom processor that you think will propel the processor to the greatest success

in the embedded world. Hyperthreading? LVDS? The simultaneous independent use

of 2 displays? The small form factor?
