Thin Mini-ITX board by congatec

The conga-IC170 thin Mini-ITX board with 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors provides high scalability for various application scenarios in the industrial field. Processors range from 2.0 GHz basic Intel® Celeron® 3995U to Intel Core i3 6100U, i5 6300U and up to Intel Core i7 6600 processor.


The conga-IC170 thin Mini-ITX boards are equipped with the dual core U series SoC versions of 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors. Depending on processor version, the boards offer configurable TCP of 7.5 to 15 watts, allowing the system to be adapted to the energy concept of any given application. Featuring two SO-DIMM sockets, the boards provide up to 32 GB DDR4-2133 memory, which offers significantly more bandwidth and is much more energy-efficient than former DDR3 implementations. The integrated 9th generation Intel® graphics support DirectX 12 and Open GL 4.4 for highly powerful 3D graphics on up to three independent 4k displays of 60 Hz (3840 x 2160) via 2x DP++ and 1x eDP, which can also be configured as a dual channel 24bit LVDS interface. Also supported: hardware-accelerated coding and decoding of HEVC, VP8, VP9 and VDENC videos.

The comprehensive offer of interfaces includes one PCIe x4 slot (3rd generation), one mPCIe and one M.2 connector that can be used for extensions or for SSD. Further peripheral devices can be connected via 4x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0. 2x gigabit ethernet and one SIM card slot support IoT and M2M connectivity. A MIPI CSI-2 interface allows for direct connection of cost-efficient CMOS cameras. Further industrial interfaces include 2x COM ports, one of which can be configured as ccTALK, plus 8x GPIO. Optionally, a trusted platform module is integrated. Hard drives and SSD can be connected via 2x SATA 3.0. Also available: 5.1 HD audio and digital audio. The modules support all current Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems, including Microsoft Windows 10. Comprehensive equipment to facilitate Design-In, such as cooling solutions, I/O shields and cable sets complements this offer.

Whether fanless HMIs, control and SCADA systems, powerful and rugged kiosk or retail systems, vending machines or digital signage: congatec’s thin Mini-ITX boards are suitable for a whole range of industrial application scenarios. Their flat design of just 20 millimetres allows for very slim panel PCs and industrial all-in-one designs. Smart battery support, optionally available, extends your application range to include portable, battery-operated applications such as portable ultrasound devices in medical technology. The integrated board management controller and Intel® vPro™ technology with Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) enhance the reliability of distributed IoT system installations, frequently making on-site maintenance obsolete.
