After the launch of the NC01 series market in the typical NUC format, the family of products Shuttle XPC nano is still growing. With the NC02 models it is now available the next model, which integrates the sixth generation of Intel processors Skylake in smaller size.
Shuttle XPS nano NC02I NC02 models are presented as PC barebone in which case, motherboard, cooling system and power supply are included in the provision as a key component. To cover as many as possible of four different models available applications with energy-saving processors Celeron, Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 already welded. The basic model NC02U is managed by an Intel Celeron 3855U dual core 1.6 GHz processor. The architecture for 14-nm and a current consumption of less than 10 Watts during operation promise a low energy consumption compared with a higher power . And in particular:
With minimum dimensions of 141 x 141 x 42 mm, the height of the case exceeds that dell’NC01 of just 13 mm; but the devices as well support a 2.5-inch 15 mm thick. Just remove the two screws of the black case cover entirely of brushed aluminum to make room for a 2.5-inch drive in the form of an SSD or HDD. Two SO-DIMM slots allow you to integrate up to 32 GB of DDR3 memory. The NC02 models also feature a free slot for expansion M.2-2280, which along with the SSD M.2 of 80 mm also supports fast NVMe cards thanks to the PCI Express link. A second M.2 slot is already equipped with a WLAN module, replaceable if necessary.
The NC02 models also feature on the back of DisplayPort, HDMI, Intel Gigabit Ethernet, USB and RS-232 side connection. A reader bootable cards is integrated into the front panel and complete with a USB 3.0 Type-A and C. Inside works efficient and quiet cooling system with heat pipes, adjusted based on temperature and load. Playback of 4K content at very high resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) is possible from NC02U variants with Intel Core processor. Smooth playback of the video signal is provided by DisplayPort and HDMI at 60 Hz to 30 Hz.
All models offer various installation possibilities; eg. vertically thanks to the aluminum base supplied or mounted on a suitable choice of surface and monitor thanks to the VESA support is also included in the scope.
The recommended price for the Shuttle barebones NC02U is 166 EUR, for the NC02U3 is 383 EUR, for the NC02U5 is 472 euro and the NC02U7 is 631 € (incl. 22% VAT). All four versions are already available for purchase.
