This new product is a fanless embedded computer equipped with an Intel® Atom x5-E3940 (1.6 GHz) processor. Featuring an extremely compact design that is the size of just two business cards, it is equipped with a rich variety of expansion interfaces to enable use with a wide range of applications. It is also equipped with a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port that adopts the new Type-C USB standard and which supports both USB PD (Power Delivery) and DP Alt Mode (DisplayPort Alternate Mode) protocols—the combination of which enables a single cable to be used for supplying and receiving power to and from other devices while simultaneously outputting video signals to monitors. This capability will enable use of a wide variety of USB Type-C compatible peripheral devices. A wireless LAN model with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality is also available (Japan only) and is ideal as an IoT gateway terminal for connecting IT networks and field networks.
- Reductions in running costs and energy usage
This product uses the x5-E3940 low power consumption Intel Atom processor platform in order to achieve low power consumption while still providing sufficient performance.
- Power supply/charging and video output with a single cable
The USB PD protocol supported by USB Type-C enables this product to both supply and receive power to and from external devices such as monitors, USB hubs, or docking stations just by connecting a single cable.
