A new fanless mini PC called the Fitlet2 is expected to be made available via online retailers such as Compulab or Amazon very soon, priced at $153 and sporting an Intel Atom x5-E3930, Atom x7-E3950, or Celeron J3455 processor supported by 16GB of RAM. With the ability to install M.2 SATA solid state drives, eMMC storage, or a 2.5 inch hard drive or solid state drive (SSD) depending on your requirements and budget.
Other features and upgrades of the fanless mini PC include a HDMI 1.4 and DIsplayPort 1.2 for up to two displays, Stereo mic/line in and line-out jacks and S/PDIF, 6 x USB 2.0 and 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and optional connectivity via 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth and/or 4G cellular.
The mini PC has been specifically constructed to be easily accessed allowing you to upgrade memory, storage, or other hardware within the tiny system which is equipped with a large heatsink case to remove the need for any annoyingly noisy fans and providing a perfect opportunity for a small convection cooling system in a rugged all metal chassis.
fitlet2 measures only 112 mm by 84 mm, making it one of the smallest full-featured PCs on the market. An all-metal die-cast housing is used for fanless passive heat dissipation. There are several optional versions of the housing including low-profile 25mm and an industrial top cover for direct-mounting. “IoT gateways have to be small, affordable and reliable” said Irad Stavi, Chief Product Officer at Compulab. “Furthermore, each IoT application requires a slightly different set of features. The most effective way to meet this requirement is by integrating an application-specific module into the gateway. fitlet2 achieves this flexibility with FACET cards.”
