congatec enters industrial Mini-ITX market with motherboard based on AMD Embedded G-Series SOC platform

Deggendorf, Germany -- congatec AG, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, extends its successful board-level product range with the first industrial Mini-ITX motherboard. The new embedded motherboards will meet the same standards and quality as the established Computer-On-Modules from congatec. Additional services include 7+ years availability, global technical support, extended manuals, specifications and customized design services.

The conga-IGX Mini ITX board is based on AMD Embedded G-Series SOC technology and integrates the next-generation computing power of the “Jaguar” based processor and high performance AMD Radeon™ graphics cores in a compact package.

Users benefit from outstanding multimedia performance, an excellent performance-per-watt ratio and flexible task allocation on the CPU and GPU. Thanks to these features, the new conga-IGX board is an ideal solution for cost-sensitive visualization and control applications.

"Embedded Mini-ITX is a great addition to our computer-on-module family and extends our embedded computer scalability with a great entrance product on the board level. Additional Mini-ITX boards will soon follow," said Martin Danzer, Director Product Management, congatec AG.

congatec offers three new Mini-ITX motherboards on the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC platform. A low-energy 9W TDP 1.0 GHz dual-core processor GX-210HA SOC with integrated AMD Radeon™ HD 8210E graphics; a dual-core 18W TDP GX-217GA SOC processor model with integrated AMD Radeon™ HD 8280E graphics; and a 2.0 GHz quad-core AMD Embedded GX-420CA SOC with integrated AMD Radeon™ HD 8400E graphics.

The integrated AMD Radeon™ graphics feature the Universal Video Decoder 4.2 for seamless processing of BluRays with HDCP (1080p), MPEG-2, HD and DivX (MPEG-4) videos. The conga-IGX also supports DirectX® 11.1 and OpenGL 4.0 for fast 2D and 3D imaging and OpenCL 1.1. Interface options include single/dual channel 18/24bit LVDS, DisplayPort 1.2 and DVI/HDMI 1.4a and enable the direct control of two independent displays. DisplayPort 1.2 also enables ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology for panorama view and multi-streaming, making it possible to control up to two displays per graphics port in daisy chain mode.

The low power draw of the new SOCs also makes fanless designs possible. This not only makes the systems quieter, but also more reliable since unreliable mechanical components such as fans can be eliminated. Sophisticated power management has a positive impact whenever there are wait times in an application. CPU state C6 “deep power down” is available on the multimedia engine as well, making it possible to further reduce power consumption without impairing ease of use since the computer needs less than a millisecond in order to switch from energy saving mode to full computing power.

1x PCIe x4 connector and Mini-PCI Express onboard, Dual GbE LAN onboard, 2x Serial ATA III, 1x mSATA (SATA III) socket support, 7x USB 2.0 and 2x USB3.0 onboard, 8 Bit GPIO onboard, 3x serial port and 1x parallel port onboard allow flexible system expansion at high data bandwidth. DC power supply 12V/19-24V, ACPI 3.0 power management and high-definition audio complete the package.
