Computer Components

Ultra-Compact Form FactorUltra-compact form factor technology is starting a revolution. Humans have always loved technology that becomes more compact, yet smarter, more powerful and more flexible. This super-small technology is promising to make regular desktop computers, and even some laptops and portable devices, obsolete.

For starters, ultra-compact form factor computers are drastically decreasing the space businesses and homes need for their computing hardware.

Even better, they are tremendously powerful and configurable. Innovations like Shuttle’s NC01U and Intel’s NUC (Next Unit of Computing) provide adequate I/O and processing power, while also able to be equipped with keyboards, LCDs, touch screens, USB, RAM and flash memory. These kinds of ultra-compact machines can stand alone as powerful processors or be chained together for controlling complex systems. Therefore, they have tremendous application opportunities in corporate activities, industry, small businesses, and homes alike.

Designed for Portable, Flexible Performance at Play and Work

Systems like the Intel NUC and similar form factor systems such as the NC01U and MSI Cubi are amazingly flexible Read the full article →

computer componentsIf there is one thing you can bet on in the technology world, especially in computing, it’s that the upcoming best component is always on the horizon. The constant march of progress has very little chance of stopping, which means that hardware manufacturers are always going to be thinking of the next revolution and “flashpoint” moment in computer components.

Intel has taken a significant stride in this direction with its new CPU microarchitecture named Haswell. This next step, a follow-up to the widely respected Ivy Bridge line of products, presents an upgrade across the board and spreads these boons to a completely different market: the mobile/tablet sector.

What does Haswell do for Computer Components?

These new CPU chips range from high end, super-powerful models to more stripped-down and conservative SKUs. Across the entirety of the line, there is an Read the full article →

building a pcThe multi-tiered process an OEM goes through when creating a new product creates a number of challenges for the engineering team.

There may be an overarching idea that guides the design, but many of the minute specifications can hold up development, not to mention the hurdles that follow, such as the acquisition of materials and building of a functional prototype.

Depending on the size of the OEM, having dedicated engineers on staff to take a product from concept to production solely on their own incurs a significant cost. Also, those employees will then have to deal with an industrial distributor in getting past the design step. Why not have that relationship between the OEM and distributor right from the start?

Concept and Design: First Steps to Building a PC with a Distributor

Many industrial electronics distributors have specific services to help in building a PC; ones that can help an OEM business acquire a custom built machine for a niche purpose or Read the full article →

Providing Distributor Value for the Industrial OEM

In many industries, such as consumer computer software, there are regular channels for the business market, which more or less match an accepted standard that you’d find in most other industries. You have a company that makes the product; they sell it to distributors, who sell it to resellers, who in turn sell it to…
