    Product Highlights

    PGA CPU Support with Configurable CPU Power Mode

    Nuvo-3120 supports PGA-type CPU to offer greater flexibility of CPU selection. PGA-type processors are with higher CPU power, and therefore introduce higher performance and more heat. To adapt Nuvo-3120 to various environments, we develop an unique function, configurable CPU power mode, to alter CPU power per user’s preference.

    By selecting maximal performance, reduced performance or extended temperature mode, you can get adequate performance/temperature preference according to deployment environment. You can refer to the table of CPU benchmark v.s. operating temperature in different CPU power modes. Compared to other embedded controllers using i7-3517UE CPU, Nuvo-3120 offers better flexibility and more computing power without sacrificing thermal reliability.

    Rich I/O Functions in Compact Chassis

    Nuvo-3120 integrates all general I/O functions in its compact chassis. Not only Gigabit Ethernet, USB3/USB2, SATA and COM ports are included, Nuvo-3120 further supports triple independent display outputs via its DVI/VGA + DP connectors. Inside Nuvo-3120, there are three mini-PCIe/mSATA slots with two SIM sockets for WIFI, 3G/4G, GPS and storage expandability.
