As the successors of the Shuttle XPC DS67 series, the Shuttle XPC DS77U, DS77U3, DS77U5 and DS77U7 models belong to the 1-liter PC family and come into the “XPC slim” category. The basic model is the DS77U and comes standard as the other three models, in a Barebone version of a case, a motherboard, a cooling system, and a power supply. The system is powered by a 1.8 GHz dual core Intel Celeron 3865U processor, soldered to the motherboard, with a 14nm architecture and less than 8 watts of power consumption in standby mode, promising energy consumption in the face of a larger power.
Shuttle XPC DS77Il The DS77U has no fan, so it’s extremely silent in operation and is also maintenance-free, as passive cooling does not penetrate the inside of the case through the fans. The DS77 series is therefore suitable for continuous operation, provided that homologated units are integrated for this type of operation. By removing the two screws from both rugs of sturdy steel cases, you can integrate a 2.5 “hard drive or SSD drive and two SO-DIMM sockets that can support up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory. One slot M.2-2280 allows you to accommodate additional NVMe memory cards. A second M.2 slot is already equipped with a WLAN module.
With only 20 x 3.95 x 16.5 cm in size, the DS77U features two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the back and also features two USB 2.0, a DisplayPort 1.2, an HDMI 1.4b, and audio ports. On the back there is a multipole socket for starting the device remotely (eg in case of fixed installation difficult to access). The front end of the range is complemented by a card reader, two USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, and two RS-232 interfaces. Operating systems are suitable for Windows 10 (64-bit) and Linux.
The operating position offers great flexibility: the PC can be installed vertically with the supplied base or mounted on a choice surface and suitable monitors thanks to the VESA mount also included in the scope. For the first time with the rack mount kit PRM01 (available as option), you can mount two DS77 series devices (or with similar construction) in a 19 “rack slot.
Shuttle’s recommended price is 279 euros for the DS77U, 512 euros for the DS77U3, 647 euros for the DS77U5 and 828 for the DS77U7 (all prices are 22% VAT included).
