Kontron reveals another addition to the rugged and extremely quiet KISS industrial server family, the Kontron Industrial Silent Server KISS 4U PCI761. The 4U rack-mount server with 64bit Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processor and long-term availability claims to combine outstanding performance density with extreme flexibility via 12 expansion slots.


Application developers are said to be benefited from a flexible platform which can be configured with a wide range of cost-efficient ATX standard components corresponding to the individual application requirements.

According to the company, the Kontron KISS 4U PCI761 rack-mount server offers broad scalability, from the Intel Core i3 to the Intel Core i7 processor, with up to four 2.8GHz cores and 8GB DDR3-1333 RAM. The industrial server also integrates a PICMG 1.3 backplane, which can be populated with up to 12 full-size PCI and PCI express expansion cards for customised I/O designs. These features are said to make the Kontron KISS 4U PCI761 the ideal basis for a broad range of applications including asynchronous real-time applications in measurement and testing technology, image processing and process control, which benefit from the maximum server performance and bandwidth. Industrial automation applications are also said to be benefited from the expanded feature set, for example, in control rooms and control centres where the server can be used with several graphics cards in multi display installations. In addition, the Kontron KISS 4U PCI761 is said to be a fit for General Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU) solutions in medical and military technology as well as simulation applications and high-end audio processing.

According to the company, the integrated Kontron PICMG 1.3 system host board PCI-761 offers an MTBF of about 100,000 hours, which ensures low maintenance costs and high-reliability. In addition, the extensive management and security functions based on Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) with a trusted platform module (TPM) are said to make remote administration an easy task. With Intel AMT 6.0, tasks such as operating system installation and maintenance, BIOS configuration and hardware diagnostics can be carried out remotely and network-based, without additional remote management hardware. With Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT) and the on-board TPM, the Kontron KISS 4U PCI-761 also claims to ensure a high level of system security, for example, through hardware encryption of all transmitted data.
