Shuttle has made available the new DH170 Skylake-compatible Mini-PCs, which features a 43 mm flat steel case for maximum protection from mechanical stresses and high ambient temperatures. The DH170 barebone, which is based on the Intel H170 chipset, supports all sixth-generation Intel Celeron, Pentium and Core processors for socket LGA1151 (up to 65 Watt of TDP). It supports 16 GB DDR3L RAM in dual-channel mode and a PCIe M.2-SSD. The machine measures a mere 19 x 16.5 x 4.3 cm (DWH) and has a footprint not much bigger than half a sheet of A4 paper.
In addition, the DH170 can accommodate a 2.5" drive with SATA 6 Gbit/s and has a Mini-PCI-Express expansion slot that can be fitted with e.g. a WLAN module. Relevant openings for WLAN antennas are already provided. Outside connections comprise of a card reader, 2x Intel Gigabit Ethernet, 4x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, 2x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, 2x RS-232 and, of course, audio.
The DH170 also supports parallel operation of high-resolution 4K displays at 60 Hz (DP) and 30 Hz (HDMI). Of course, for this scenario Core i3 processors or higher are recommendable.
At the back of the machine is a four-pin connector for remote power-on (e.g. in the case of fixed installation in an awkward position). If required, a jumper on the motherboard can put the machine in always-on mode so that it automatically starts up as soon as the operating voltage is applied.
The DH170 can also be operated in various positions, e.g. sitting flat on a desk or installed on suitable surfaces or monitors with the included VESA mount.
Optional accessories consist of a WLAN kit (WLN-S) and a VGA adapter (PVG01).
The recommended retail price for the Shuttle DH170 Barebone is EUR 244.00 (ex VAT).
