New Family of Ruggedized NUC Embedded Systems Feature Intel Core i3 CPU

Provides HDMI/Thunderbolt, Wireless Gateway and I/O Expansion

Cadia Networks, an innovative global supplier of application specific board level products and systems for a wide range of embedded computing applications, introduces a new family of conduction cooled/fanless embedded systems based on Intel’s Next Unit of Computing (NUC) motherboards; the RoughNUCTM. The RoughNUC repurposes Intel’s NUC into the embedded market with conduction cooled cases, industrial temperature range memory devices, and expansion options for traditional and application specific embedded I/O modules.

RoughNUC systems are available in a wide range of CPU and I/O configurations. The initial RoughNUC family members offer the choice between two Intel Core i3 based systems, with Gigabit Ethernet or Thunderbolt, and a Celeron 947 CPU for less demanding applications. Core i5 based models will be available within a few months.

All RoughNUC configurations share dual independent high performance graphics either through HDMI or Thunderbolt interfaces. These systems feature two SO-DIMM sockets for expandability up to 16GB of memory, two Mini PCIe sites for flexible support of I/O expansion and SSD configurations, BIOS vault technology, fast boot and the Intel Visual BIOS. RoughNUC systems also support Intel “Anti-Theft” Technology providing hardware intelligence designed to protect your system and its data if lost or stolen.

RoughNUC embedded systems are ideal for compute and data collection engines for M2M Intelligent gateways, kiosks, digital signage, and intelligent systems for small embedded spaces, or rugged environments.
