Kontron expands its new motherboard family based on 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i, processors, with the K3851-R ATX

Kontron presents a new ATX motherboard that leverages the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i series processors (LGA1700 with 125W TDP). With this, Kontron now extends its product family of new motherboards “Designed and made in Germany”, consisting of Mini-ITX, µATX, and ATX, after the recent launch of three µATX boards.

The K3851-R ATX is particularly interesting for all applications with a high demand for PCIe expandability – including PCIe 5.0, which is twice as fast as the previously prevailing PCIe 4.0 standard. This makes it particularly suitable for industrial automation markets – mainly for control PCs in 19″ rack format (including robotics), for medical technology, high-performance workstations for CAD applications (including gaming PCs) as well as for video editing and video wall displays via GenLock signal.

The ATX board with the Intel® R680E chipset is equipped with a total of three network ports (two Intel® i225 and one Intel® i219LM GbE vPRO controller incl. AMT, Teaming, and TSN), two M.2 2230/2242/2280 (Key-M, PCIe/NVME SSD modules) incl. NVME RAID and support for Intel® Optane™ memory as well as one M.2 2230 (Key-E, WLAN/Bluetooth modules, including CNVi support). It has a total of 6 PCIe slots, one x16 5.0 and one x16 4.0, two x8 4.0 and x1 3.0 lanes each, as well as a PCI expansion card slot. 4 COM ports round off the wide range of interfaces.

The motherboard is suitable for use in an extended temperature range of -10° C to +60° C. Four DIMM memory modules, fast DDR5-4800 with a maximum of 128 GB, and Dual Channel are used as memory. Furthermore, the board is equipped with numerous other interfaces, including a total of 13 x USBs, of which 1 x USB Type-C 3.2 Gen2 and 6 x USB Type A (2x USB 3.2 Gen2, 4x USB 3.2 Gen1) on the rear of the case. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) ensures a high level of hardware- and software-based system security.
