The conga-PA5 Pico-ITX is representing an industrial-grade, long-term available computing platforms featuring the latest Intel® Atom™, Celeron® and Pentium® processors “Apollo Lake”.
System engineers can deploy it 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-PA5 Pico-ITX features impressive security enhancements, improved real-time computing capabilities as well as the ability to keep the embedded systems of IoT devices in sync. This is of great importance for connected applications such as digital video surveillance, vision based robotics, industry 4.0 connected devices, traffic control and smart energy grids, as well as various connected computing nodes on ships, planes, trains, automobiles and more
The conga-PA5 Pico-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-PA5 offers 8 GB LPDDR4 RAM onboard with up to 2,400 MT/s. 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-PA5 offers TPM 2.0.
The new conga-PA5 Pico-ITX supports Windows 10, including the Windows 10 IoT versions, Windriver VxWorks, Android and common Linux versions. To simplify the design-in of this new embedded board, there is a comprehensive choice of add-ons including optimized cooling solutions, I/O panels and cable sets.
The conga-PA5 Pico ITX SBC is available with the following CPU variants:
