With the launch of the new embedded motherboard KTQM87/mITX Kontron is extending its long-term available Mini-ITX portfolio to include a vibration- and shock-proof motherboard with a soldered 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor (formerly codenamed ‘Haswell’). This ‘mini powerhouse’ has been designed especially for performance-intensive applications in harsh environments and supports the extended temperature range of 0°C to +60°C. With its outstanding graphics performance, the board operates up to three independent displays or an ultra-high resolution 4K monitor. Additionally, the Kontron KTQM87/mITX boasts an excellent performance-per-watt ratio and optimized Thermal Design Power (TDP). The ATX-compatible motherboard offers an extensive ecosystem, so that developers can design even the most demanding systems based on standard components. This reduces R&D costs and accelerates time-to-market.

The Kontron KTQM87/mITX excels with a wide selection of interfaces. In addition, customer-specific functions can be integrated via standard extension slots such as PCI Express and Mini PCIe as well as Kontron’s own embedded Feature Connector. With its SIM-card socket, the motherboard is also destined for deployment in intelligent, distributed ‘Internet of Things’ applications. By supporting the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 2.0, the board offers DSP class I/O processing performance. This qualifies the ECC supporting Kontron KTQM87/mITX as an ideal platform for industrial real-time control applications. Due to the fact that the boards have a 7 year long-term availability, OEMs always obtain the same boards for additional or replacement systems and thus manage large field deployments extremely efficiently.


The Kontron KTQM87/mITX Mini-ITX embedded motherboard is based on the Intel® QM87 chipset and supports up to 16 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM with ECC support. It is equipped with a dual- or quad-core 4th generation Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processor (FCBGA1364) with up to 3.4 GHz. For application-specific extension cards, it provides both a PCI Express Gen 3.0 as well as two Mini PCIe slots. Further peripherals connect via four USB 3.0 and eight USB 2.0 ports as well as via Kontron’s embedded Feature Connector which is capable to execute up to 160 GPIOs. Additionally, the Feature Connector can be delivered application-ready with the Kontron KT Evaluation Breakout Board, which further simplifies and accelerates system designs. The new embedded motherboard supports up to three independent high resolution displays or one 4K monitor via DisplayPort 1.2. The additional LVDS interface enables the connection of common and cost efficient embedded displays. Two GbE interfaces – one with Intel® AMT 9.0 support – allow for extended network options. A large choice of memory media connects via four SATA interfaces with RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality: 2x 1.5/3 Gbit/s, 2x SATA Gen 3.0 interfaces with up to 6 Gbit/s bandwidth and as well as 2x mSATA Gen 3.0 for on-board SSD (multiplexed with mPCIE). HD audio and two COM interfaces round off the motherboard’s feature set.

First sample boards of the new embedded Mini-ITX Motherboard Kontron KTQM87/mITX are available now.
