A line of Mini-ITX motherboards will also offer additional services of 7+ years availability, global technical support, extended manuals, specifications and customized design services. The conga-IGX Mini ITX board from congatec 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.

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 18/24-bit 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. Advanced 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 on board, Dual GbE LAN on board, 2x Serial ATA III, 1x mSATA (SATA III) socket support, 7x USB 2.0 and 2x USB3.0 on board, 8-bit GPIO on board, 3x serial port and 1x parallel port on board 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.
