    Specification    Order Information


Nuvo-4000 is a high-performance box-pc with fanless design and small footprint. It incorporates Intel® 3rd-Gen i7/i5 processor to offer extraordinary computing power, and fanless architecture to offer reliable operation in various environments.

The 4-slot expandability makes Nuvo-4000 very versatile. Its two Gen2 PCI Express slots delivers a total of 6 GB/s bandwidth for applications demanding high-speed data transmission. A notable 48W power budget is dedicatedly supplied to the x16 PCIe slot for powering a high-watt PCIe card (e.g. a graphics card). Nuvo-4000 also has PCI slots to accommodate up to 4 PCI cards for general industrial automation and test & measurement applications.

Nuvo-4000 features the smallest foot-print for a fanless box-pc with four expansion slots. It supports ample I/O interfaces for communication/control purpose, and implements DVI+DVI+VGA triple independent display outputs video/image related applications. An option of smart fan is available for better operating reliability when high-watt cards installed.
The combination of high performance, small foot-print and versatility makes Nuvo-4000 not only an ideal application platform, but also a great replacement of traditional rack-mount or wall-mount IPC.

Product Highlights

Quad-core Superb Performance
Nuvo-4000 supports Intel® 3rd-Gen i7 processor to offer superb computing power. Its 4-cores/8-threads architecture has 233% performance increase compared to previous i7-620M processor. In addition, the integrated Intel® HD4000 Graphics engine also signifi-cantly advances the graphics performance.

Four PCIe/PCI Expansion Slots for Add-on Cards
To make full use of i7 performance, Nuvo-4000 comes with 4 PCI/PCIe expansion slots. There are two configurations, x16/x4 PCIe slots + 2 PCI slots (Nuvo-4022), and 4 PCI slots (Nuvo-4040) can be chosen according to your application requirements. Considering the power consumption of high-performance PCIe card, a 48W ([email protected]) power is dedicatedly supplied to the x16 slot, and another 48W is shared by the x4 slot and peripheral devices. You can integrate all kinds of PCIe/PCI cards to create a comprehensive application platform.

Small & Smart Chassis Design
Nuvo-4000 features a very promising mechanical design. Not only because it has the smallest foot-print among 4-slot Box PCs in the market, but also it can operate 24/7 within -25°C/60°C temperature range. For the system contains high-watt PCIe cards (e.g. a graphics card or a PoE card)
Nuvo-4000 offers the fan option to create active air flow and maintain proper system temperature. A smart mechanism is implemented to activate the fan only when needed and thus a longer life of fan can be expected.
