SU Series – Small, Yet Perfectly Formed

SU Series from DFI

The SU Series from DFI are a pair of compact, fanless embedded computers with big I/O and powerful processing options. The EC70A-SU and EC70B-SU are both configured with the Intel 6th Generation i3/i5/i7 U-series of processors (codename Skylake). IoT ready, the EC70A/EC70B-SU Series should be considered for any smart factory, healthcare, surveillance or demanding applications that call for a powerful and versatile system.

The EC70A-SU is claimed to be the world’s smallest and lightest embedded box PC delivering only 15 watts TDP and measuring only 181mm x 118mm x 57mm with a weight of just 1.1kg. The aluminium chassis holds a lot of I/O for such a compact system which includes 2x Intel Gbe, 4x COM, 3x USB 3.0, 1x VGA and 1x HDMI which support 2 displays independently. The systems size together with excellent heat dissipation makes for a perfect choice in space restrictive applications.

The EC70B-SU is taller having a deeper aluminium chassis to allow for a greater range of I/O. This includes 5x COM (including 1x for 8-bit DIO), 1x VGA & 1x HDMI again supporting dual displays, 4x Intel Gbe including 2x for PoE and 1x for iAMT 11.0 (supported in the i5/i7 only) plus 6x USB 3.0. Expansion is available through 1x full size Mini PCIe and 1x half size Mini PCIe and storage is held by 1x mSATA 4GB/8GB and 1x M.2/CFast Slot. 

SU Series Front and Rear

The new Skylake chips in the EC70A/EC70B-SU Series use the BGA 1440 form factor and are soldered down instead of socketed which indicates Intel’s dedication to more highly integrated all-in-one systems. The new i3/i5/i7 trio support DDR4 and also have the new Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580 GPU with a redesigned 128MB eDRAM cache making the GPU considerably faster. All three chips are quad-core, although the Core i7 additionally supports HyperThreading which effectively gives it eight cores.

The operating temperature for both fanless embedded systems is between -20 to 60°C and they support a wide DC voltage of between 15 – 36V. Together with great processing power and extensive I/O, the EC70A/EC70B-SU Series offer versatility and true ruggedness to the IPC market.
