Intel® NUC: Mini PC, Full-Sized Performance

Built with 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processors to deliver the performance and innovation for the small space and embedded solutions that your customers want.

Built for Business, Powered for success
Your clients want the features and performance to tackle demanding tasks, display eye-catching visuals, and keep data safe and the Intel® NUC Kits NUC7i5DNKE and NUC7i5DNHE built with 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processors deliver the performance and innovation for small space and embedded solutions that your clients want. Whether you’re creating a digital kiosk, deploying intelligent vending, or refreshing enterprise PCs, the Intel NUC7i5DNKE and NUC7i5DNHE can get the job done easily. With Intel® Wireless 8265-AC and the option to run Windows® 10 or Linux* or another OS, the NUC7i5DNKE and NUC7i5DNHE deliver the flexibility to build the exact solution your clients want.

The slightly taller Intel NUC7i5DNHE is Intel® Optane™ memory ready.2 By pairing Intel Optane memory with high capacity HDD storage media, performance increases 14 times faster than just a hard disk drive alone4 5 6 7—exactly what customers want for digital kiosks that are streaming content or enterprise solutions where clients are connecting to cloud-based apps. Intel NUC7i5DNHE has room for up to a 2 TB 2.5" HDD, so clients can store data or sensitive files locally. This kit also has an M.2 slot available for a lightning fast SSD. In addition, there’s also an internal expansion area on the back of the chassis to encourage your innovation. Create a system with a DB9 connection for serial ports or build out internal expandability for 10/100 GbE—the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. The slimmer Intel NUC7i5DNKE makes it perfect for mounting in tight locations—on a wall behind a digital sign or on the display itself.

Keeping data, passwords, and security keys safe
With Intel® vPro™ technology you can help your customers get ahead of security threats. The built-in hardware-enhanced security means you can keep client data and credentials secure, and remote manageability is perfect for installations such as unattended digital kiosks and intelligent vending. In addition, Intel® Remote Secure Erase (Intel® RSE),3 lets you wipe an Intel® SSD on a lost or stolen laptop. Or, if you are refreshing enterprise clients, Remote Secure Erase can wipe all data and encryption keys, making any data that was on the drive, virtually impossible to retrieve.

Also built into the hardware is Intel® Trusted Platform Module (Intel® TPM) which addresses the growing concern over boot process integrity and offers better data protection. There are two discrete TPM modules available, enabling sales in all countries, including China.

New features let you customize any way you want
Both the Intel NUC7i5DNKE and NUC7i5DNHE have some new features including a USB 3.0 on the internal header, in addition to 4 USB 3.0 ports on the chassis. For the first time, the commercial kits also come with two full-sized HDMI* 2.0a ports to power brilliant 4K displays at 60 Hz. Suddenly your clients’ digital kiosks and intelligent vending machines have images that really pop and draw people in. The power button is now located on the front panel for easy on/off no matter where you locate the Intel® NUC. 

From kiosks to intelligent vending: build embedded solutions with the Intel® NUC board NUC7i5DNBE
The Intel® NUC board NUC7i5DNBE enables infinite flexibility and expandability depending on your customers’ needs. The board includes a 4-lane eDP connector that allows you to create interactive touch systems perfect for digital signage, casino gaming, or intelligent vending. The NUC7i5DNBE board also has an internal power connector with a 12-24 volt input range so your systems stay up and running no matter the fluctuation in power. The board ships without a wireless card so you can choose what’s best for the solution you’re building.
