Thin Mini-ITX SBC Runs Linux on Skylake, Offers Long Lifecycle

Congatec, which was early to announce COM Express modules based on Intelâs 14nm, 6th Generation Core (âSkylakeâ) processors, has now rolled out a thin Mini-ITX Skylake board. The 170 x 170 x 20mm Conga-IC170 follows other Congatec Mini-ITX boards such as the thin Conga-IC97 board, featuring Intel 5th Gen Core âBroadwellâ SoCs, as well as the not-so-thin, but industrial-focused Conga-IGX, built around the AMD G-Series SoC.

The Congatec supports U-series Core processors â the same power-efficient, dual-core 6th Gen models available in most of the Mini-ITX boards listed above. All current Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems are supported, says Congatec.
