Product Highlights

Performance Advantage

Nuvo-1300af inherits remarkable features introduced to Intel Core™ i7/i5 platform, such as new 32nm micro-architecture, Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading (2 cores/4 threads). The result is a significant performance improvement over previous Core™2 Duo platform. In addition, the new, integrated Intel® HD Graphics engine also doubles the graphics performance

4x Gigabit 802.3af PoE Ports

Nuvo-1300af integrates four Gigabit PoE ports compliant with IEEE 802.3af standard. Each port can deliver 15.4 W of power and 1000 Mb/s bandwidth over a CAT-5e/CAT-6 cable of up to 100 meters. Our highly integrated design, moreover, allows us to effectively manage the heat PoE circuit generates by conducting it to the heat sink, and consequently makes Nuvo-1300af a very reliable i7 fanless controller possessed of PoE capability.

Isolated/Non-isolated PoE Power Design

Since PoE can deliver power over a long cable, an unexpected power surge may enter the copper cable and cause system damage. In addition to well-designed surge protection, Nuvo-1300af features an isolated PoE design to minimize the risk. You can alternatively use single power supply for both system and PoE power (non-isolated Isolated/Non-isolated PoE Power Design Accommodation of Two 2.5” SATA HDDs mode), or use two independent power supplies for system power and PoE power respectively (isolated mode).

Extensive functions —
mini-PCIe, optional DIO and PCI-104 expansion

Considering the huge volume of data in a vision or surveillance application, Nuvo-1300af is designed to accommodate two 2.5” SATA hard drives in its compact chassis to offer terabytes of capacity. If that’s not enough, you can have the eSATA port for storage expansion, or the front-accessible CF card for system installation
