Looking for a powerful solution in a small package? Intel NUC mini PCs have the power of a full desktop in a package as small as 4 square inches.
With uses in home entertainment, gaming, digital signage, industrial applications, machine control, appliances and anything else you can imagine, the Intel NUC is a versatile and powerful platform. CPUs from i3 to i7 have all the full size features you need, from Intel HD Graphics across the line to Intel vPro, in some models.
Intel offers the NUC in two ways. As kits, just add memory, OS, and SSD to make a complete system. Board-only options are ready for you or your integrator to install into your own chassis or product. Long life cycle SKUs are also available which make this the perfect base platform for your kiosk or appliance project. Agency certifications and software support round out a very compelling offering to build your product on.
In May 2016, Intel released the Mini PC Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK. Larger than the other NUC-based machines and designed for gaming, it also makes a great ultra-small form factor workstation. Features like an Intel Core i7 processor and Thunderbolt 3 technology make it highly capable of tackling professional workloads.
