The NICE series is a wonderful addition to the list of the modern compact industrial computers. One of the most interesting features for this generation is the possibility to work without an active cooler's usage.
These solutions are provided on the base of the Intel Celeron processors' high performance. The clock rate for these processors equals 1.3/1.5 HZ. The usage of these processors allows to decrease the power supply level without any harm to the system performance.
An opinion of the Intel specialists is that the Pentium M and Celeron M are the most perspective models of the processors today. They are able to achieve a new level of performance for the industrial computers. Solutions, on the basis of these platforms, are efficiently used for the areas, where the level of the computer reliability is not less important than its power and performance. These computers are for the work of information and trading terminals, bankomats, different embedded systems, applications with critical requirements, etc.
The NICE series provide an opportunity for the optimal choice of almost any project of the client. The computers of the NICE series are for the efficient work, as the platforms for the specialized areas of usage. Some critical systems can use these models of industrial computers as the on-board computers, network computers, "thin" clients, home entertainment centers, trading terminals, etc. This is not a full list of the possible usage areas for these industrial computers.
The embedded processor chip is built on the Intel 852 GM chipset that supports the usage of the DDR200/266 memory up to one GB and provides a ground for a reliable and efficient work of the applications with high resource consumption. The models of NICE-3100 series have an extension slot PCI, the NICE-3150 has the Slim CD-RW+DVD Combo in it. The headers, responding to the processor chip functionality, are lead out to the external panel. There are the 6xUSB, 2xRJ45, 4xCOM, VGA, TV-out, Audio, PS/2 cutoff points, used for these series of industrial computers. Furthermore, the compact parameters of the devices (195x80x268 mm) allow to use them almost for any type of the industrial systems. The industrial computers of the NICE series can also be for the information systems with the lack of workspace.
One more feature of these industrial computers, worth of mentioning, is the availability of the module for the 1x2.5" HDD and an adapter of AC-DC power supply unit. The proposed series of industrial computers are a new stage in the development of industrial computers.
The NICE-3100/3150 is a computer system with full functionality. That is the reason why the NICE series opens rich opportunities for the developers of the specialized systems.
