NUC Form Factor and Apple

NUC Prototype Design – barely bigger than an apple!

The NUC (acronym for “Next Unit of Computing”) is an innovative “small form factor” computer based on Intel processor architectures. It is capable of doing virtually everything a traditional “tower” computer (e.g. desktop/workstation form factor) can do, while taking up a small fraction of the physical space.

The heart of the NUC is a 4×4 inch motherboard with a soldered-on Intel processor. ICC offers a variety of NUC models based on different CPUs such as Atom, Celeron, and Core. We integrate these motherboards into ultra-compact cases, creating highly versatile solutions for both consumer and business applications.

Highlights of the NUC include:

  • Highly portable yet powerful
  • Support for range of Intel processors
  • Excellent for both home and business applications: home theater, media server, digital signage, video surveillance, and more
  • Variety of interfaces: USB 3.0, HDMI, PoE, and more
  • All solid state storage (with support for 2.5″ HDDs)
  • Supports Intel HD Graphics

In addition to these features, the NUC also employs a fanless passive cooling design for the low power Atom-based solutions and fan-based active cooling on higher power systems, such as those running the Core i3 and i5 CPUs.

All in all, the NUC packs a much larger punch than its size would indicate! To learn more about NUC solutions from ICC, please email us at sales@icc-usa.com or 877-422-8729 x110.
