Passively cooled computing systems carry many advantages. Most of these turn out to be very important for industrial and embedded applications. The attention paid by AMD and Intel to the peformance per watt aspect of modern day computing platforms has led to ultra-compact form factor (UCFF) PCs emerging as ideal candidates for passive industrial computing platforms. We have already reviewed a number of industrial PCs before. CompuLab is one of the major players in the passively-cooled embedded and industrial computing market space. In this review, we take a look at the CompuLab fitlet-XA10-LAN, a UCFF PC sporting an AMD Mullins SoC along with four gigabit LAN ports.
Compulab, a maker of miniature and small form-factor computers, is introducing its first desktop system called Airtop today. The new computer can be equipped with rather high-performance components, but...35 by Anton Shilov on 1/14/2016
The last time we checked out a fanless desktop system, it was Logic Supply's LGX AG150. While affordable, that system was powered by Intel's Cedar Trail Atom processor, a...44 by Dustin Sklavos on 4/20/2013
