Product Highlights

Performance Advantage
Nuvo-1000 inherits remarkable features introduced to Intel Core™ i7/i5 platform, such as new 32nm microarchitecture, Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading (2 cores/4 threads). The result is a significant performance improvement over previous Core™2 Duo platform. In addition, the new, integrated Intel® HD Graphics engine also doubles the graphics performance.

Fanless and Trapdoor Design for Easy Maintenance
In most circumstances, “fanless” stands for a more reliable and durable operation. Nuvo-1000 features a compact and fanless structure, and its Trapdoor design allows an easy maintenance for replacing the memory module and hard drive by just unscrewing one screw!

5x Intel® 82574L Gigabit Ethernet controller
The extraordinary computing power of Nuvo-1000 is suitable for image-related applications such as AOI and surveillance/security. For these applications, GigE camera is an important device to acquire high-resolution images. Nuvo-1000 provides up to five GbE ports using Intel® 82574L controllers for sufficient connectiivity and great compatibility with cameras.

Extensive functions – mini-PCIe, optional DIO and PCI-104 expansion
In some cases, you need to enrich functions of Nuvo-1000. Its mini-PCIe with USIM support provides an easy way for wireless 33 communication. Optional isolated digital I/O is a good fit for device control. And the PCI-104 option allows you to install any PCI-104 module inside so you can have a compact, rugged platform for a wider range of applications.
