The Intel® Celeron® J6412 processor is available and supported for an extended period. This long-term availability makes the Mini-ITX motherboard an ideal solution for integrators looking to maximize their return on investment.
8GB On-board RAM
Stability is a necessity in applications where vibration is present. The 8GB LPDDR4X memory soldered on board enables the Mini-ITX motherboard to deliver much more stable, solid operation compared to the socket-type memory.
2.5GbE High-Bandwidth and Low-Latency Data Transmission
The two RJ45 LAN ports both provide 2.5GbE connectivity that gives an immediate boost to overall network performance and improves the bandwidth required at large-scale workloads. By connecting with a 2.5G network switch, it can form a solid, optimized infrastructure for the deployment of massive IoT devices or sensors to deliver lightning-fast transmission speed between devices.
5G & Wi-Fi Expandability
Wireless solution support is made through the two M.2 slots. The B-key slot comes with a SIM slot to support 5G modules. The A-key slot is designed to support Wi-Fi/Bluetooth network cards.
Drive AIoT, 4K Graphics Applications at the Edge
The KINO-EHL supports triple independent display via DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 1.4 and IEI iDPM interface. The iDPM interface supports diverse display modules, enabling users to add LVDS, eDP or VGA display interface upon requirements. Up to 4K@60 high-resolution support provides great benefits for applications that demand on-image resolution and color realism at the edge.

M.2 B Key Slot for Cards in Different Sizes
In addition to offering wireless network connection, the M.2 B key socket on the KINO-EHL supports NVMe SSD, AI accelerators and many more M.2 cards for stable storage configurations and scalable AI capability. The B-key slot can take different module sizes to make it more compatible with most M.2 module in the market. This includes module widths of 22 and 30 mm, and lengths of 42, 52 and 80 mm.
Tool-less M.2 Installation
The two M.2 slots both contain a quick-release retainer, allowing tool-less installation and removal of an M.2 module. With just a simple press of the retainer, the module can be securely seated into the slot or be released.
PCIe Gen3 Slot Allows More Functionality & Possibility
The Mini-ITX motherboard is equipped with a PCI Express Gen3 expansion slot providing easy integration of PoE, video capture or I/O cards with a compatible riser card. With twice the bandwidth of PCIe Gen2, the KINO-EHL can take advantage of PCIe cards to expand AIoT application potential.
