The board – with Radeon Vega Graphics – is suitable for versatile graphics and demanding applications, according to Kontron – compared to V/R1000 APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) from AMD, it delivers higher performance, says the Augsburg-based company.
Kontron cites example applications such as casino gaming systems, medical displays, thin clients and industrial PCs as well as for kiosk, infotainment or digital signage systems.
Compared to the previous model based on the R1000 and V1000 series, the R2000 shows similar features to the V1000 SKUs. These include 16 PCIe lanes, up to four display ports and scalability of the available APU SKUs (R2312, R2314, R2514 and R2544) from 12 to 54 W (TDP – Thermal Design Power).
“The AMD Radeon Vega GPU integrated in the SoC (Vega 3, 6 or 8 are available) ensures particularly brilliant graphics and supports up to four independent displays in 4K resolution. Two SO-DIMM memory modules, fast DDR4-2666 or 3200 with a maximum of 32 GB, Dual Channel and ECC support are used as memory.
The motherboard also offers extensive interfaces, including Dual GbE, COM (RS232, RS422, RS485), USB 3.1 Gen2, M.2 (Key-M, Key-B) and much more. A wide-range DC input (8V – 36V) also allows for universal operation in a wide variety of applications.”
It supports Windows 11 with a seven year lifecycle support.
A SMARTCASE S711 housing kit is also available for the motherboard.
The board was developed in Germany and will be produced there, on request of industrial customers.
