    Integrating cutting-edge technologies, Neousys creates the next-generation fanless controller, Nuvo-5000 series, with ruggedness, performance and versatility. It supports socket-type, 6th-Gen Core™ processors for flexible CPU selection from Pentium® to Core™ i7 according to performance consideration, and remains -25°C to 70°C true wide-temperature operating.

    It provides plenty of embedded I/O functions for general applications, including Gigabit Ethernet, USB3/USB2, COM and VGA/DVI/DP triple display outputs. If they are not enough, Neousys’ patented Cassette offers an easy way for I/O expansion by installing an off-the-shelf PCIe/PCI card.

    Nuvo-5000 further incorporates Neousys MezIO™, an interface electronically and mechanically fitted for embedded system, to presents a cost-effective and reliable way for I/O enhancement. By installing optional MezIO™ module, Nuvo-5000 can deliver more application-oriented functions for diversified vertical markets.

    Latest Intel® CPU, Cassette and MezIO™ creates a powerful controller with numerous I/O configurations. Nuvo-5000 is the one platform for all!

    Product Highlights

    Benefited by 14 nm lithography, the 6th-Gen Core™ platform delivers significant performance boost. Comparing to 3rd-Gen IvyBridge, the new Skylake platform offers 40% increase in terms of performance per watt. Additionally, Nuvo-5000 is the first fanless controller supporting both 35W and 65W CPU. You can configure CPU power via Neousys’ unique BIOS feature to obtain a delicate balance between arithmetic-demanding and wide-temperature applications.

    Neousys’ Patented Cassette innovates a brilliant way for accommodating add-on card, not only because the modularized design makes easy installation/replacement, but also because the possibility of passive cooling for add-on card brings more reliable operation. You can install COTS PCI/PCIe card to expand versatility of Nuvo-5000, or choose Neousys’ offer of Cassette module with pre-installed heat-spreader to include PoE+, USB 3.0 or independent graphics card.

    MezIO™ is the interface designed for incorporating application-oriented I/O functions into a embedded system. It offers computer signals, power rails and control signals via a high-speed connector. MezIO™ is also mechanically reliable benefited from its 3-point mounted mezzanine structure. A MezIO™ module can leverage these signals to implement comprehensive I/O functions.

    Neousys provides various MezIO™ modules, such as RS-232/422/485, isolated DIO, LVDS output, CAN bus, ignition power control, and DTIO, as the options for Nuvo-5000. Users can also leverage signals/powers on MezIO™ to create a module with specific domain know-how. MezIO™ presents a cost-effective way to build a tailor-made embedded system for your application.

    Nuvo-5000 was recognized by the judges of the annual Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards program
    Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards program: The program reviews and recognized the most innovative products and services in the vision and image processing industry. Criteria used in the Innovators Awards ranking included: originality, innovation; impact on designers, systems integrators and end-users; fulfilling a need in the market that hasn’t been addressed, leveraging a novel technology, and increasing productivity.
