Kontron Unveils KTT30/mITX Nvidia Tegra 3 Mini-ITX Board

Kontron has today unveiled the KTT30/mITX, its first embedded ARM based Mini-ITX board (and the first ARM mini-ITX board I’ve ever heard of). The motherboard is powered by Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor @ 900 MHz with up to 2 GB DDR3L memory, and consumes less than 7W. Storage is available via 2 SD Card slots, one bootable eMMC, and one SATA 2.0 port. The company expects this ARM Mini-ITX motherboard to be used in applications such as thin clients, Panel PCs, digital signage and Mini-Box PCs. The solution is also suitable for industrial (rail road, instrumentation…) and medical fields as it will be available for at least seven years.

By using the Mini-ITX form factor, Kontron KTT30/mITX board can be easily integrated in existing embedded solutions using (x86) mini-ITX boards.

Here are the key features of Kontron KTT30/mITX motherboard:

  • SoC – Nvidia Tegra 3 ARM Cortex-A9 Quad Core 900MHz Processor with Graphics Ultra low power NVIDIA GeForce GPU (enhanced 3D capabilities; 1080p H264 MPEG-4 encoding/decoding Video Processor)
  • Memory – DRAM Up to 2 GB DDR3L memory down
  • Video output – Support for 3 independent displays to the following outputs:

    Nice in the next generation this will be the standar. Quad cores, 2 or 4 gb Ram, less power consumption, 32 or 28 nm chips, linux like a bolt…. Next step, the solar computer.

    I’ve actually already seen some demos of solar “computers”, but not exactly for the general public yet:
