Fanless Industrial computers and PCs support automation, video, IoT and AI at the distributed edge. Advanced passive cooling design by SolidRun’s thermal and mechanical experts dissipates the heat generated by the CPU/GPU to heatsinks or an external enclosure. The designs minimize thermal junctions and dissipate heat over a broad surface area. While the HummingBoard series (metal enclosure) is dedicated to industrial oriented environments the CuBox series (plastic enclosure) targets media and desktop applications. Some of the benefits include:
Durability and Reliability – Traditional PCs with fans have a tendency of sucking up dirt and dust while cooling themselves. By removing the key failure point and avoiding moving parts reliability and longevity are gained.
Low Power Consumption – ARM-based, with a small footprint and unique heat dissipation design draws low power consumption.
Silent – Fanless computers are ideal for digital signage, cable TV box and home theater PC (HPC) where a single computer solution can replace several audio/visual components and work without noise.
