Currently shipping

Product Overview

The Intel® NUC kit DE3815TYKHE and board DE3815TYBE, built with an Intel® Atom™ processor for intelligent systems, are a pint-sized powerhouse for value-conscious businesses and organizations. This low-cost, low-power solution introduces many firsts to the Intel NUC form-factor: fanless thermal solution for the ultimate silence and reliability, onboard flash storage for small-footprint software solutions, internal flat panel display connectivity for built-in screens, video graphics array (VGA) port for monitor compatibility in legacy installations, watchdog timer for resilient system availability, and also inter-integrated circuit (I²C) and pulse width modulation (PWM) signals for interfacing with sensors and other embedded devices enabling the Internet of Things. And with its three-year supply availability, the Intel NUC kit DE3815TYKHE and board DE3815TYBE will be around to support long development and production ramp cycles.

With its vertical industrial design and support for Linux* and Windows* embedded operating systems, this Intel® NUC kit DE3815TYKHE and board DE3815TYBE were designed as the essential building block to power the thin-client market. A fanless kit and board with flash storage built in, and USB 3.0 and audio headset support, this Intel NUC fits right at home in schools, call centers, and other locations with a large installed base of VGA monitors.

Powered by the Intel Atom processor E3815, the Intel® NUC kit DE3815TYKHE and board DE3815TYBE also provides an ideal combination of power consumption, performance, affordability, and software compatibility to drive light digital signage, point-of-sale, and kiosk solutions, amongst other usages. With 4 GB of embedded MultiMediaCard (eMMC) storage built in, many embedded applications will benefit from a lower overall system-level bill of materials (BOM) cost. Incidentally, high availability resilience can also be enabled for these and other unattended solutions via the built-in watchdog timer, providing priceless protection against costly and embarrassing downtimes. Last, but certainly not least, this Intel® NUC provides a discrete trusted platform module device onboard for hardware-based data encryption—a must-have for applications where confidential information is at stake. Embedded possibilities are endless with the Intel® NUC Kit DE3815TYKHE and board DE3815TYBE—just add RAM!
