Kontron KISS 2U industrial server with 4 fast PCI Express x4/x16 expansion slots

Highly-integrated industrial servers for complex visualization and image processing tasks

(PresseBox) ( Eching, Germany, )
Thanks to the new PCI Express Butterfly Backplane, the longterm available Kontron Industrial Silent Server (KISS) 2U may be flexibly and costefficiently equipped with up to 4 PCI Express x4 cards and one PCI Express x16 (PEG) card. Based on a PICMG 1.3 CPU board, the processor performance is also flexibly scalable at any time.

The highly integrated and thus spacesaving 2U industrial server is especially suited for complex visualization and image processing tasks that require the independent operation of up to 8 highdefinition monitors or the integration of 4 PCI Express x4 frame grabber cards for machine vision or video surveillance.

The highperformance industry server is designed particularly for applications in control rooms and operation centers of energy suppliers, rail companies, or airports. Additional applications are found in infotainment and digital signage on trains and airplanes as well as in the gaming industry as a central computer for multiple gaming machines. The high bandwidth of up to 8 GB/s also enables graphicintensive simulations for weather forecasting, digital mockups, or virtual reality for operator training.

By integrating CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture)compliant graphics cards, the Kontron KISS 2U PCIe can act as a compact supercomputer (with around 500 gigaflops), greatly accelerating complex image processing operations through parallel processing. Customers benefit in any case with highperformance graphics and image processing on a single consolidated industrial server in spacesaving 2U format.

The Kontron KISS-2U industrial server with compact PICMG 1.3 system host boards (SHB) packs scalable processor performance up to an Intel Core 2 Quad processor and up to 8 gigabytes of DDR2 dualchannel RAM. Equipped with the Kontron PCI-760, the longterm available 2U industrial servers offer up to 3x Gb Ethernet, 8x USB 2.0, 2 x RS232C, and HD audio. The integrated Intel GMA 3100 Graphics Media Accelerator provides resolutions up to QXGA (2048 x 1536) at 75 Hz via VGA.

For highest data throughput, an integrated RAID (RAID 0/1/5/10) controller for SATA drives can improve speed and/or data safety. Applicationspecific extensions are adaptable via a Type IIA miniPCI connector. Specific Kontron extensions are available for LAN, WLAN, and SCSI.

With an MTBF of 50,000 hours (approx. 5.7 years of continuous operation), the extremely robust and shockresistant systems ensure the highest availability and lowest maintenance costs. This is also thanks to the integrated Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) 3.0, which allows for the remote management of the server. Designed for continuous operation, the KISS systems are CE certified and UL suitable.

The highly integrated Kontron KISS 2U PCIe supports Linux and the complete Windows desktop and server range including the new Windows 7. It is available direct from the warehouse as a standard configurable system, or it can be further customized as needed and delivered as a tested and independentlycertified solution. The new Kontron KISS 2U PCIe is available in EMEA now and will be available in North America and APAC at the end of Q1.
