fit-PC2 - a nettop PC done right
CompuLab introduces fit-PC2 – the smallest, most power-efficient Intel Atom PC to date. fit-PC2 architecture is what sets it apart from other nettop PCs - fit-PC2 is designed around the Intel Atom Z530 1.6GHz and the ultra low power Intel US15W system controller hub - which incorporates hardware video acceleration. This allows fit-PC2 to run Windows XP or Ubuntu Linux at just 6W, and play full HD 1080p H.264 video using less than 7W.
The most striking feature of fit-PC2 is its size - 4" x 4.5" x 1.05" - smaller than a CD.
fit-PC2 is totally fanless - using the all aluminum case to dissipate heat. This has two advantages -
- fit-PC2 is noiseless - or absolutely silent if equipped with a solid state disk.
- Increased reliability with no moving parts.
A Standard PC
fit-PC2 may look like an appliance, but it's a full PC including -
- 1.6GHz x86 CPU
- 1GB RAM
- SATA hard disk
- DVI with graphics acceleration
- High definition audio
- LAN and WLAN
- 6 USB ports
fit-PC2 fully supports all major operating systems.
A Green Computer
fit-PC2 excels in extremely low power consumption - 6W in normal operation in Windows XP or Linux or up to 8W under load. The only PC that can challenge fit-PC2 low power is the older generation fit-PC Slim, but fit-PC2 has the same power consumption with 5 times the performance.
CompuLab is recognized as an industry leader in miniature low power PCs design and manufacturing, with over 10 years of experience in designing x86 and ARM embedded system-on-modules. Established in 1992 the company offices and manufacturing facility are located in Haifa, Israel.
Measuring 115 x 101 x 27 mm and consuming makes it the smallest product in the market - it can practically fit in a pocket. Yet it boasts the capabilities of a full-featured desktop, including a 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 160GB harddisk, all packed into a rugged aluminum case. Fit-PC2 smoothly runs Windows XP / Vista / Win 7 and Linux, as well as all mainstream applications. Fit-PC2's outstandingly low power consumption – just 6W, makes it the greenest PC ever introduced. Low power consumption provides another important benefit – fit-PC2 doesn’t require a fan, making it absolutely quiet and improving system reliability by obviating any moving parts. In combination with SSD, it creates a perfect shock tolerant system, ideal for car computers and automotive applications. fit-PC2 Specifications fit-PC2 comprises Intel's Atom Z530 processor, US15W chipset, 1GB of DDR2 memory and an optional 160GB harddisk. The last can be replaced by a solid state disk or by another HDD. fit-PC2's graphics controller has a DVI interface and supports display resolutions up to 1920x1080. The peripheral set includes 802.11g WiFi, HD Audio, 1000BT Ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports, miniSD and mini PCI Express sockets. It is powered by a regular 12V DC wall adapter. Pricing and Availability The fit-PC2's price starts from $245. fit-PC motherboard (named SBC-FITPC2) can also be purchased separately, starting from $195. Evaluation Kits for commercial users will be available from 01-Apr-2009.
