3.5″ Single Board Computer with 7th / 6th Gen Intel® Core™ / Celeron® U-Series CPU

A high-speed highly-integrated embedded platform with 4K UHD support

3.5"-SBC-KBL/SKL Single Board Computer


Kontron is pleased to introduce two new collections of 3.5″ single board computers, named 3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL, powered by 7th and 6th Generation Intel® Core™ / Celeron® U-Series processors respectively, allowing system integrators to quickly and conveniently develop a low-power 4K Ultra HD capable embedded system. Now there are seven variants available in two series, powered by Intel® Core™ i7-7600U, Core™ i5-7300U, Core™ i3-7100U, Celeron® 3965U, Core™ i7-6600U, Core™ i5-6300U and Celeron® 3955U respectively. With a lower power consumption of only 15 W, they can even be used to easily build a fanless and ventless system for harsh environmental conditions.

In addition to greatly improved processing and graphics performance, 3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL distinguish themselves from other counterparts through the following stunning features:

4K Ultra HD Resolutions

With Intel® HD Graphics 620 / 610 / 520 / 510 integrated GPU inside, 3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL can output graphic and video contents at 4K Ultra HD resolution. Accompanied with a higher-speed and wider-bandwidth HDM 2.0 video transmission interface, it can fully support 4K content playback at a smooth 60 frames per second without compromising the quality of visual effects.

Faster & Reliable DDR4 Memory

With two SO-DIMM sockets supporting DDR4 memory which delivers up to 50% higher bandwidth and up to 40% lower power savings over previous memory technologies, 3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL can help enhance the overall computing environment of the system you are going to develop. In addition, DDR4 provides greater data reliability and signal integrity, making 3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL ideal for many business-critical and mission-critical applications.

Faster SATA 3.0 Storage Access

With two new-generation SATA 3.0 sockets on board, 3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL support twice faster access to HDD / SSD storage devices and thus they are suitable for the applications that need to handle heavy video streaming, such as digital signage, gaming, video surveillance or video conferencing.

M.2 Multi-functional integration

3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL reserve space for one M.2 Key B socket and allows users to expand possible storage, peripherals or functionality through a highly-integrated M.2 module. This kind of design can save space typically occupied by a variety of bulky peripheral ports and modules on the board and makes smaller and thinner embedded systems possible.

Below summarizes the features and specifications of 3.5″-SBC-KBL and 3.5″-SBC-SKL.
