The compact device achieves up to 17.5% performance uplift and can reach significantly higher clock speeds at lower power

IBASE Technology Inc., a leading provider of industrial computing and innovative digital signage solutions has launched its SI-654-N fanless digital signage player powered by Intel’s latest 11th Gen Core U-Series processors (formerly Tiger Lake) manufactured with Intel’s 10nm SuperFin transistor that achieves up to 17.5% performance uplift and significantly higher clock speeds at lower power compared to the original 10nm.
The SI-654-N is currently offered with an Intel Core i7-8665UE processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz) integrating the high-performance Iris Xe GPU, Intel’s 12-Gen graphics with 96EUs. Measuring 200 x 139 x 41 mm, the compact SI-654-N can be easily installed in space-constraint environments. It houses four HDMI 2.0 connections to deliver up to 1x 8K display or 4x 4K displays, performing a vivid 8K resolution and ensuring a truly immersive audience’s viewing experience.
Mainly designed for digital signage in busy places where there is a constant demand for practical information, the SI-654-N features HDMI-CEC control, display status monitoring, flexible video wall configurations and hardware EDID emulation that prevents distorted or black screens due to display and cable connection issues. “The new industrial-grade SI-654-N is perfectly suited for video wall solutions in airports, shopping malls and other commercial premises that require reliable 24/7 operation,” said Archer Chien, director of solution product planning at IBASE. “With our advanced iSMART and Observer technologies, the SI-654-N is equipped with low-temperature boot protection, power resume control, power on/off scheduling and hardware monitoring to enable continuous and stable operation.”
