Review Display Systems has announced the introduction of an AMD-powered mini-ITX SBC from Kontron. The new high-performance Kontron D3723-R mini-ITX industrial motherboard supports the AMD Ryzen Embedded R2000 series processors with integrated AMD Radeon Vega graphics and is offered in four versions.

Developed and engineered in Germany, this highly integrated mini-ITX SBC is intended for use in many embedded applications with demanding graphic-intensive tasks such as medical equipment, factory automation, digital signage, POS terminals, and industrial-use PCs.

The industrial specification D3723-R motherboard series is based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded R2000 series processors. Outstanding graphics performance is provided with the integrated AMD Radeon Vega GPU furnished with up to four DisplayPorts, one embedded DisplayPort V1.3 and one 24-bit dual-channel LVDS and can drive up to four independent displays with 4K resolution (4096 x 2160 pixels).

Peter Marchant, embedded business manager, RDS, said, “The Kontron D3723-R series provides a comprehensive feature and toolset which allows customers to differentiate their products with performance options without the need for additional design and development. The new D3723-R SBC provides enhanced processing and graphics performance by using the powerful AMD Ryzen 2000 series embedded processors.”

An extensive range of onboard peripherals, I/O and expansion options includes 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.2 (Gen1/Gen2), 2 x SATA III and Mini-PCI Express interfaces. The M.2 Key-B and M.2 Key M enable the connection of SSD storage devices. Up to 32GB of DDR4 2400/2600/3200 main memory is supported. The motherboard supports Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 11, and Linux 64-bit operating systems.

The new motherboard implements the mini-ITX format, which provides mechanical outline dimensions of only 170mm (h) x 170mm (w). An operating temperature range of -10C to +60C is supported.

Depending on the needs for graphics performance, there are four motherboard versions available implementing different AMD R2000 series processors: the -R1 uses the AMD R2312, the -R2 uses the AMD R2314, the -R3 uses the AMD R2514 and the -R4 implements the AMD 2544.
