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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-422-8729 x110.
