New AMD-Driven Small Form Factor PCs Launching for AI, IoT, Robotics

This week Simply NUC announced a new line of small form factor PCs featuring AMD Ryzen Embedded processors.

The extended- life minicomputers are aimed at uses in the AI, industrial Internet of Things (IoT), analytics, sinage, point of sale and robotics usages. They will feature serial ports, Ethernet ports, display ports, plus wi-fi and cellular options.

"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.

The first lne of these processors (named Sequoia) will lauch in January. Preorders are being taken now.

"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."
