IEI launched tKINO-ULT6 is a Thin Mini-ITX SBC that comes with an 11th generation Intel core processor part of the Tiger Lake-UP3 CPU family. The tKINO-ULT6 Mini-ITX SBC also supports quadruple independent displays, SATA 6Gb/s, dual Intel 2.5GbE, HD audio, and RoHS. It can handle a wide range of input DC power from 9V to 36 V.
The tKINO-ULT6 SBC is expected to be found in CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines, real-time controls, human-machine interfaces, tool applications, medical imaging, and other applications requiring high resolution.
- Mini-ITX form factor with 11th Gen. Intel Tiger Lake UP3 Embedded processor, support for DDR4-3200 memory
- Video Output – Four independent displays via HDMI, DP, eDP/LVDS, USB4
- Dual Intel 2.5GbE LAN
- M.2 A key for WIFI+Bluetooth (PCIe x1/USB 2.0), M.2 M key for Storage (PCIe x2/SATA)
- Expansion – PCIe x8 Gen 4.0 slot
The tKINO-ULT6 Mini-ITX SBC supports up to 64GB DDR4-3200, dual SATA III connection with SATA power supply. SATA is also accessible on the M.2 M-key 2242/2280 slot. It also comes with M.2 A-key 2230 with PCIe x1 and USB 2.0, and a PCIe x8 slot (x4 signal) that “exploits Tiger Lake’s support for PCIe Gen4.”
The tKINO-ULT6 Mini-ITX SBC specifically features the Tiger Lake ULP “E” (Embedded) Core or Celeron processors that offer a bit lower base and turbo frequencies than the other standard ULP3 cores.
Other ports comprise dual 2.5GbE ports (via I225V controllers), four USB 3.1 Gen2 ports and a USB 4 Type-C port. Internal connectors include 4x USB 2.0, 4x RS-232, and single RS-232/422/485, RS-422/485, I2C, SMBus, KB/MS, front panel, 8-bit DIO, and CPU and system fan connectors. The tKINO-ULT6 Mini-ITX SBC also includes Super I/O, LEDs, watchdog, chassis intrusion detection, and a TPM header with an optional TPM 2.0 chip. The DC power input is available through a coastline jack and an internal connector. The power consumption for the board with a 12W-28W Core i7-1185G7E processor and 16GB RAM maxes out at approximately 78W.
