congatec: new industrial-grade thin Mini-ITX and Pico-ITX boards

congatec presents the new conga-PA5 Pico-ITX single board computer and the conga-IA5 Thin Mini-ITX motherboard, two industrial-grade, long-term available computing platforms featuring the latest Intel Atom, Celeron and Pentium processors (Codename Apollo Lake). System engineers can immediately deploy them to upgrade existing Pico-ITX and Mini-ITX designs and benefit from approximately 30% more processing power and 45% more graphics performance compared to the previous generations.

The conga-IA5 Thin Mini-ITX boards and the comparably slim line conga-PA5 Pico-ITX SBCs are equipped with the particularly energy-saving Intel Atom processors E3930, E3940 and E3950 for the industrial-grade extended temperature range of -40 to +85° C, or are 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, whereas 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, both boards offer 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 both SBC families also offer TPM 2.0.

With its larger footprint, the conga-IA5 Thin Mini-ITX motherboard 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. The Pico-ITX SBC, which is designed for size-sensitive devices in harsh environments, comes with an USB 3.0 Type C supporting also Power Delivery and DP++.

The new Mini-ITX motherboards and Pico-ITX single board computers support Windows 10, including the Windows 10 IoT versions, Windriver VxWorks, Android and common Linux versions. To simplify the design-in of these new embedded boards, congatec also offers a comprehensive choice of add-ons including optimized cooling solutions, I/O panels and cable sets.
