In the Internet of Things era, fanless computers are at the crossroads where functionality and cost severely clash.
Fremont, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2015
NEXCOM NISE 106 is a compact yet feature-rich fanless industrial automation computer, aimed to satisfy user’s need for computing, multimedia, connectivity, and networking functions all simultaneously. Supporting Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® Processors N3000 product family, the NISE 106 offers excellent value for cost with up to quad-core computing power, HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) decoding with three-display support, high compatibility with both the latest and legacy peripherals, and internet connectivity. The fanless computer NISE 106 can help ensure product quality through vision inspection and factory operation monitoring.
“In the Internet of Things (IoT) era, fanless computers are at the crossroads where functionality and cost severely clash. They are expected to perform versatile functions including compute, control, and communicate while cost remains a major influence to client” explained Joe Lin, General Manager of NEXCOM IoT Automation Solutions Business Group. “Based on new Intel® processors, NEXCOM fanless computer NISE 106 is able to offer unprecedented cost-performance value, compared to previous Pentium®- and Celeron®-based NISE models. Meanwhile, features highly appreciated by our clients including fanless design, compact size, and low power consumption are kept.”
“Based on Intel’s 14nm manufacturing technology, the Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® Processors N3000 product family are dual or quad-core SoC (system on a chip) processors integrated with Intel® Gen 8 graphics,” said Intel Senior Product Line director Jonathan Luse. “These new SoC processors provide high performance per watt and media processing capability suited to the growing needs of intelligent systems.”
For industrial control applications, the NISE 106 with dual- or quad-core computing power can serve as an intelligent controller, human machine interface (HMI) and server node. Automatic optical inspection machines can benefit from the NISE 106’s hardware-accelerated HEVC support and high speed USB 3.0 and GbE LAN interfaces. Also, the small-sized fanless computer provides highly flexible connections with three display interfaces: DVI-D, HDMI, and DisplayPort. Legacy devices using serial communication are supported with four independent COM ports. Facing the need for IoT gateways, the NISE 106 is also equipped with wireless Wi-Fi/3.5G/LTE connectivity to allow for network communication. Moreover, NISE 106 featuring versatile functionality is sometimes used as part of interactive kiosks, delivering a sensational feast to the eyes or delivering information and services.
