New at Kontron: SMARTCASE™ Solutions for Box-PCs "Designed by Fujitsu”

Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), is adding the proven SMARTCASE™ chassis kits from Fujitsu to its portfolio and thereby further expanding its product range. Five variants of the Kontron SMARTCASE™ are currently available: S500, S520, S700, S710 and S720. These serve as the basis for fully assembled Box-PCs, consisting of Kontron motherboards "Designed by Fujitsu", including cooling and housing according to customer specifications. Within the second quarter of 2020, Kontron will launch another SMARTCASE™, the S711, for the mITX board D3713-V/R with the AMD Embedded V1000/R1000 series processor. This will enable developers to implement complete systems quickly, easily and without a high level of testing effort. This lowers costs and shortens the time-to-market.
