Robust Box PC excels with brilliant graphics performance

Eching, – Today, Kontron has introduced the Kontron CB 753 Dual Head a new member of its flexibly configurable Embedded Box PC family which excels in graphics performance. Thanks to its integrated graphics accelerator, the fanless and particulary robust Embedded Box PC provides connections for two digital or four analog displays and delivers graphics performance beyond the performance of the chip set. It is therefore ideal for designs of fanless multi-display applications with high-resolution graphics found in mobile and stationary digital signage and infotainment applications, POS/POI systems as well as in industrial shopfloor and control room scenarios.

The long-term available Embedded Box PC Kontron CB 753 Dual Head has been conceived especially for applications in which the integrated graphics performance of low-power embedded chipsets does not suffice for controlling several high resolution displays. To serve this purpose, Kontron has integrated a powerful graphics accelerator with a chipset from Matrox or NVIDIA as well as a specifically tailored cooling solution which is an ideal match. Compared to system designs with a fan, the completely sealed and fanless Kontron CB 753 Dual Head provides a smaller footprint while offering an enhanced and maintenance-free operation. This makes an application-ready integrated multi-display solution available to OEM customers which has already been tested and certified for reliable continuous operation in the temperature range from 0 to +50 °C. This saves time otherwise used for purchasing separate components, their integration and testing and enables OEMs to concentrate on their core competence of application development and to reduce their time-to-market.

Like all Kontron Embedded Box PCs in the CB family, the Kontron CB 753 Dual Head stands out in terms of high-reliability and long-term availability. The MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) of the CE-certified and UL-qualified Embedded Box PC is 40,000 hours. It also facilitates simple integration in a wide spectrum of OEM applications. For flexible integration in diverse application areas, Kontron offers vertical and horizontal mounting and rackmounting options.

The feature set in detail
Kontron's Embedded Box PC CB 753 Dual Head, in a compact aluminum chassis (75 mm x 350 mm x 260 mm), offers strong media playback performance - thanks to its 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processor and up to 8 GB DDR3 RAM. Displays can either be connected via 2x DVI (1920 x 1200px) or 4x VGA (4x 1920 x 1200px, or 2x 2048 x 1536px). Alternatively, there is a version with 2x Display-Port and a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The wide, industrial-purpose configurable interface range includes 4x USB, 3x GB LAN, 4x RS232, PS/2 M+K, Line in, MIC In, 7.1 HD Audio and 1x Firewire. Via a PCI Express Mini Card slot, the array of interfaces can even be extended to accommodate different customer-specific requirements like W-LAN, GPS, CAN or digital I/Os. For local data storage there is bay for a 2.5“ SATA HDD or a shock-resistant SDD as well as a CF socket which is accessible via a detachable lid at the bottom of the chassis.

The Kontron CB 753 Dual-Head Embedded box PC is available now and supports Linux Embedded, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows XP as well as Windows XP Embedded.
