"A wireless-AC card can be installed into one of three M.2 slots, leaving another slot available for an LTE modem, and the final slot for a lightning fast SSD," the company said. "The bottom of the chassis is designed for mounting options including DIN rail and VESA plate."

The minicomputers are designed to run Windows or Linux.

"We are thrilled to be working with AMD on the long-life mini computer product line as this will plug a gap in our NUC roadmap," Aaron Rowsell, Simply NUC CEO, said in a prepared statement. "Sequoia is the first of a complete product line we are rolling out to our customers where we can commit seven years of supply from the time of launch."
