The conga-IA5 Thin Mini-ITX is representing an industrial-grade, long-term available computing platform with the latest Intel® Atom™, Celeron® and Pentium® “Apollo Lake” processors.
System engineers can deploy it immediately to upgrade existing Pico-ITX and Mini-ITX designs. There is a benefit from approximately 30% more processing power and 45% more graphics performance compared to the previous generations . With improved performance per watt, it will unleash more performance at a given thermal envelope. Also it improves energy consumption and battery life for given performance requirements. Application areas for this new board is numerous and ranges from small sized handheld devices, box PCs and IoT gateways to industrial-grade Thin Clients, slim HMIs and low-power GUIs
The conga-IA5 Thin Mini-ITX is equipped with the particularly energy-saving Intel® Atom™ processors E3930, E3940 and E3950 for the industrial-grade extended temperature range of -40° C to +85° C, or is fitted with the higher performing low-power dual-core Intel® Celeron® N3350 and quad-core Intel® Pentium® N4200 processors.
All variants offer the high-performance Intel Gen9 graphics with up to 18 execution units and support up to three independent high-resolution 4k displays via 2x DP++ with full 4k@60Hz and dual channel LVDS. The conga-IA5 comes with up to 8 GB DDR3L of power saving RAM for cost sensitive applications. For IoT connectivity and generic extensions, there are 2x Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, 1x mPCIe, 3x USB 3.0 and up to 3x USB 2.0 ports. Additional peripherals can be connected via 2 serial interfaces (RS232/RS422/RS485) and 8 GPIOs. Two MIPI CSI camera inputs are further provided. For the integration of storage media, the board offers up to 2x SATA Gen 3.0 with 6 Gbps as well as a Micro SD card slot. Audio signals are carried via HDA. For security-sensitive applications the conga-IA5 Thin Mini-ITX offers a TPM 2.0.
With its larger footprint, the conga-IA5 Thin Mini-ITX offers additional interfaces including a SIM card socket for direct WAN connections to cloud and IoT, a ccTalk interface and SPI required in many gaming and vending applications, as well as an additional M.2 slot for storage media and USB 3.0 OTG.
