With outstanding computing power from the latest generation processors, comprehensive I/O capability, four SATAIII mass storage interfaces and supporting up to 32GB of DDR4 DRAM, the device is optimised for use as a network computer or workstation. CAD workstations, graphics design, video processing, database management and network servers are typical applications that will benefit from the improved performance over previous generations of embedded SBCs.

The device is based on the Intel 6th and 7th Generation Skylake and Kaby Lake Core processor families or the Xeon E3-1200 v5/v6 processor in a FCLGA1151 socket all with the Intel C236 chipset. The HD530 GPU in the Xeon processor offers 24 EUs, clocked at up to 1150MHz, decoding H.265/HEVC entirely in hardware; the 630 GPU in the Kaby Lake version is mainly the same as the 530 found in Skylake but with HEVC and VP9 support as the key feature of the upgrade. Displays can be connected via 1 VGA, 1 LVDS, 2 HDMI and one DP port, for up to three individual displays controlled simultaneously.

Other features of the device are six USB3.0 ports, four SATAIII ports, four RS232 and two RS232/422/485 ports, four USB2.0 ports, two Key M PCIe M.2 ports for NVMe and two Key E PCIe M.2 ports for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, two Mini PCIe sockets with support for mSATA and a SIM slot.
