RNUC-3MYB, Intel 5th Generation Core i3

Core i3This RoughNUC system is  powered with a 5th generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor, has a small footprint, but big potential. With 4K display support it’s an ideal device for digital signage with video analytics, digital kiosk, intelligent vending, or PC replacement. The advanced capabilities of the Intel® Core™ i3 processor gives you performance to run video analytics to help target and personalize messages and offers to the right audience. And the triple display capability means your customers can deliver their messages across multiple screens.

A serial port option to connect legacy embedded devices means that you can customize the Intel NUC for a wide-range of usages, including POS systems.  You can choose the type of storage the way want, as well with the option to install a 2.5″ HDD or an M.2 SSD. This choice gives you options to store all your files locally or take advantage of the fast, power-efficient M.2 form factor which minimizes load times and improves reliability.

The RoughNUC chassis has a small footprint of 112mm x 164mm x 47mm and offers highly efficient conduction cooling, serving as both a case and passive (fan-less) heatsink for the Intel processor.  Systems are available in both commercial and extended operating temperatures.

This new generation computing platforms provides flexible, customizable compute engines to drive digital signage, kiosks, video image capture, surveillance, HMI controllers, in-vehicle applications, command & control, industrial control, and intelligent computing for small spaces, or anywhere else you can imagine.
