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


Congatec, which was early to announce COM Express modules based on Intel’s 14nm, 6th Generation Core (“Skylakeâ€) 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 “Broadwell†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 — 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.
