High-performance in-vehicle computing platform ideal for image-intensive and demanding signaling applications

The Kontron D3714-V/R mSTX motherboard provides a highly integrated embedded computing platform that enables the design, development, and implementation of systems requiring exceptional graphics performance.

Review Display Systems (RDS), a provider of embedded systems and display solutions, has announced the availability of the new AMD-based Kontron D3714-V/R mini-STX single-board computer (SBC). Capable of supporting four independent displays, with resolutions up to 4K, the highly integrated Kontron D3714-V/R is ideally suited for use in a wide range of embedded systems such as digital signage, terminals information, ticketing kiosks, medical displays, clients and ultra-small industrial PCs.

Made in Germany, the Kontron D3714-V/R series of mini-STX motherboards support fanless operation with AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 processors. Exceptional graphics performance comes with the integrated AMD Radeon Vega GPU (graphics processing unit) supporting up to three DisplayPorts (V1.4 including DP++ support) and one HDMI port (V2.0b) , resulting in display resolutions up to 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels).

The board also offers dual-channel (24-bit) LVDS, onboard DisplayPort V1.3 (4K), 8-bit GPIO, and onboard HD audio. Other interfaces include USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 (Gen1/Gen2) as well as SATA III. An M.2 SSD interface (Key-M: 2230/2242/2280) allows connection of SSD storage. Additionally, the motherboard supports M.2 WLAN/Bluetooth (Key-E: 2230) and AMD’s built-in TPM V2.0 enables a high security standard for trusted computing.

Depending on the graphics performance requirements, three different motherboard versions are available. The V2 variant is equipped with the AMD V1605B processor (Quad Core 2.0/3.6 GHz), GPU @ 1.1 GHz, eight compute units and supports four displays. The R2 variant is based on an AMD Embedded R1305G (Dual Core 1.5/2.8 GHz), GPU @ 1.0 GHz, three compute units and supports three displays. The R1 version uses an AMD R1102G (dual-core 1.2/2.6 GHz), a 1.0 GHz GPU, also three compute units and supports two displays.

The D3714-V/R is the first completely new motherboard developed by Kontron following the acquisition of Fujitsu’s industrial motherboard division. The new product implements the compact mini-STX format which features dimensions of only 140mm (h) x 148mm (w). An operating temperature range of -10°C to +60°C is supported.

The Kontron D3714-V/R mSTX SBC will work with a Microsoft Windows 10 or Linux-64 operating system. Review Display Systems can create bespoke options for firmware and operating system support, such as custom built-in Windows system images and proprietary configurations to provide branding or corporate logos on displays BIOS boot.

By designing and supplying fully integrated embedded systems, Review Display Systems can provide completely bespoke solutions for the integration of computer hardware, high resolution displays, touch screens, interconnect, mounts and accessories mechanical, firmware, and operating system support.

The Kontron D3714-V/R mini-STX motherboard series is now available from Review Display Systems.
