DFI releases HU551 3.5” SBC

October 23, 2014 - DFI releases HU551, a 3.5” SBC with BGA 1168 packaging technology and low-power consumption at only 15W TDP. The enhanced Intel HD graphics GT series integrated in the processor projects a 24% performance increase over its previous generation. Improvements include media, multiple displays, as well as immersive visual experiences to a variety of industrial applications.

By means of a significant improvement in onboard graphics capability, HU551 features 1 LVDS (48-bit, dual channel, resolution up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz), 2 DP (resolution up to 3200 x 2000 @ 60Hz), or 2 HDMI (resolution up to 4096x2304 @ 24Hz or 2560x1600 @ 60Hz). Apart from excellent graphics performance, HU551 takes advantage of Intel Core i3/i5/i7 mobile processor technologies that support 1 DDR3L SODIMM socket up to 8GB.

To meet a wide range of industrial and embedded application needs, the HU551 module delivers new connection capabilities throughout flexible I/O, including 2 LAN ports, 6 USB ports, 2 SATA 3.0 ports with RAID 0/1, 3 COM ports, 1 LPC connector, 1 SMBus connector, 8-bit DIO, and 1 12V DC-in jack (default) or 4-pin power connector. The U-series SoC-based platform even adopts the upgraded Intel Active Management Technology 9.5 (iAMT) to reduce manageability cost and enable service providers to manage, repair and protect the networked computing assets better. Remarkably, 1 SIM card socket and 2 Mini PCIe slots which support 3G for efficient communication and additional expansion capabilities are available in this 146mm x 102mm small form factor of SBC.

All these advantages let the HU551 3.5” SBC accommodate to wide range of industrial applications, especially in space-limited environments requiring flexible I/O, superior performance, and low power consumption, such as industrial automation, in-vehicle computer, healthcare devices, A, POS, and kiosk.
