The CPU-521-17 is a rugged Mini-ITX Single Board Computer designed to deliver intense computation while meeting the requirements for industrial and rugged fanless applications.
Low-profile at just 16.5mm, the CPU-521-17 offers the 6th Generation Intel Core processor family (i7, i5, i3 and Celeron), with two cores and up to 16GB SO-DIMM RAM.
Other features include high speed interfaces: two Gbit Ethernet, two SATA 3.0 with RAID support, four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0, two full-size Mini PCIe sockets, four PCIe Gen 3 lanes, and three independent video ports (LVDS, DP++ and HDMI supporting up to 4096x2304@60Hz).
The CPU-521-17 is a solid building block for projects where reliability in harsh conditions is mandatory, and long term availability is a must, thanks to an operating temperature of -20 to +70°C, a soldered-down CPU, support for RAID 0/1, optional conformal coating and long term support/lifecycle programs.
Supported operating systems include Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Linux; moreover, the CPU-521-17 supports Everyware Software Framework (ESF), a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi middleware for IoT gateways.
Distributed and supported by Eurotech, ESF adds advanced security, diagnostics, provisioning, remote access and full integration with Everyware Cloud (EC), Eurotech’s IoT integration platform (separately available).
Professional Services are available for the CPU-521-17, starting from BIOS personalization and including carrier board design, system development and production. Deep module customization, such as feature changes are also available.
