MSC Technologies presents Booksize PC with a passive-cooled Intel Core processor

MSC Technologies presents Booksize PC with a passive-cooled Intel Core processor (PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) MSC Technologies, a business group of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, a business region of Avnet Inc. (NYSE: AVT), presents the 330 x 206 x 88 mm embedded system Booksize B1-Q87 under the label DSM Computer. The compact computer is designed for applications sized between desktop computers and industrial computers, and is ideal for applications such as database servers. Other target markets are digital signage, retail and gaming.

The high-performance Booksize B1-Q87 integrates a MiniITX board with a fourth-generation Intel® Core™ i5/i7 processor from the desktop series that is passive cooled and significantly less expensive than a comparable mobile CPU. Depending on the type, the Thermal Dissipation Power (TDP) of the processors lies between 35 W and 45 W. Thanks to the passive cooling of the CPU, the service life of the computer system is increased significantly. The high-performance Intel® HD Graphics (e.g. HD4600) graphic controller is integrated in the high-end processor. The Intel® Q87 Express is deployed as desktop chipset. The on-board DDR3 SDRAM memory can be expanded to 16 GB.

The two redundant fans installed in the Booksize PC ensure that the CPU continues to be cooled even after failure of one fan. The replaceable fan cartridge facilitates maintenance of the computer. The embedded system receives its power from an integrated AC power pack or alternatively via a Phoenix socket of the DC input.

A free PCI Express™ x16 slot for short cards allows the B1-Q87 to be expanded flexibly, e.g. with a graphic card. In addition, one 3.5 inch exchangeable plug-in unit and two removable SSDs/HDDs are present. As an alternative to the two removable SSDs/HDDs, the computer provides space for an internal SSD/HDD.

To install the robust computer housing, MSC Technologies can provide base-mounted rails or a wall mounting.

The DVI-I and two DisplayPort (DP) V1.2 graphic connections of the B1-Q87 permit the connection of three independent, high-resolution displays. In addition to the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 interfaces, two GbE LAN interfaces, Serial ATA and HD Audio are present.
