Today we are putting Shuttle's new DS67U barebone under testing, the successor to the DS57U product family. The space-saving , low-energy mini-PC has an array of hardware features and can be used in many areas of application.
The fanless 1.3-liter slim PC supports the Intel Skylake-U platform, equipped with 14nm Intel Celeron 3855U dual-core processor and support up to 32GB DDR3L low voltage memory. With built-in Intel HD Graphics series allows these slim PCs to have ample performance for playback 4K content.
Geared towards 4K or analog signage markets, Shuttle offers DS67U series with HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs for dual-screen displays. The device has also built-in an IEEE802.11b/g/n/ac + BT combo wireless module and comes equipped with functions such as dual Intel Gigabit-LAN, Teaming mode support and Wake on LAN, which increases remote data transmission efficiency for Digital signage and Kiosk systems for substantial savings of operating time.
The provided I/O interfaces include four USB2.0, two USB3.0, SATA6Gbps, SD card reader, RS232,and RS232/RS422/RS485, allowing these devices to connect easily with various peripherals such as thermal printers, label printers, laser barcode scanners, and more. Built-in M.2 2242 Type M and M.2 2230 Type A expansion slots allow users to install SSDs or other such devices to boost the capabilities of the DS67U.
The DS67U is certified to reliably operate 24/7 in up to 40C temperatures and use a fanless cooling system. The device is also economical, using an efficient 65W power adapter to minimize long-term power consumption.
Shuttle's recommended retail price for the for the DS67U is 226.00 EUR .
Intel Skylake-U platform technology
The DS67U supports the new Intel Skylake-U platform technology, equipped with 14nm Intel Celeron®3855U 1.6GHz dual core processing power. It features support for up to DDR3L-1333/1600 32GB memory and built-in Intel HD Graphics, able to deliver Full HD / 1080P or 4K video playback (There are three optional SKUs, including DS67U3 (i3-6100U), DS67U5 (i5-6200U), and DS67U7 (i7-6500U).
Display imaging on up to two screens via HDMI + DisplayPort. Use an adaptor to convert HDMI into DVI interface and DisplayPort into HDMI or DVI interface for diversified signal selection.
Designed for digital signage, kiosk, POS, and other applications which require 24/7 operation.
Support 4K Ultra HD
The DS67U is built-in HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs to support 4K high resolution (3840x2160). Now with four times the resolution of Full HD, viewers can enjoy the super detailed and crystal clear imaging of 4K.
Built-in two M.2 expansion slots
The DS67U features two M.2 slots. One (M.2 2230) is already pre-install a WiFi card. The other is M.2 2242 with type M to install M.2 SSD or other compatible devices, proving a strong expansion capacity.
Support RTC Alarm Everyday or Any day
In addition to standard Power on by RTC function, the DS67U is able to power on at specific times according to specific days as opposed to every day(RTC Alarm Everyday/Any day); this can also be turned on and off via the Windows task scheduler.
Multiple I/O Interfaces
With built-in RS232, RS232/RS422/RS485 interface, two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports at the front panel, and two USB2.0 ports at the rear panel, the DS67U can easily connect to peripherals such as thermal printer, label printer and bar code scanner. It offers a wide range of vertical applications.
Dual Intel Gigabit LAN High Connectivity
The DS67U is built-in Intel® i211 and i1219 Dual Gigabit LAN as well as support for Wake On LAN and Teaming Mode function to provide high-speed data transfer capability and a better compatibility for business network environment. With a built-in Realtek RTL8821AE 802.11 b/g/n/ac and BT combo wireless network module, transmission rates reach up to 433.3 Mbps.
VESA Mount Capability
The slim DS67U meets international VESA mounting standards and is capable of mounting to the rear of a LCD monitor or a TV.
