Simply NUC Pioneers a New Class of Commercial and Industrial-Grade Mini PCs with Help from AMD Ryzen™ Embedded SoCs. — Case Study
Simply NUC sought to extend its significant success in the consumer Mini PC market onward to commercial and industrial applications, where long-lifecycle product
support and supply longevity are critical factors.
AMD Ryzen™ Embedded SoCs enabled Simply NUC to develop a ‘Long-Life Mini’ product portfolio that its customers in the embedded computing domain can count on for up to seven years. Customers also benefit from AMD Radeon™ – caliber graphics performance and advanced multi-display flexibility.
AMD is helping Simply NUC scale its product portfolio to new heights with pincompatible AMD Ryzen™ Embedded R1000 and V1000 SoCs, while benefitting from an open ecosystem of AMD based motherboards and complementary components.
AMD’s long-lifecycle embedded processor enables Simply NUC to penetrate new markets while offering excellent graphics and multi-display capabilities.
The Mini PC market has shown tremendous promise since its inception, fueled by growing awareness for the many advantages Mini PCs provide compared to bulky tower PC platforms. Featuring a dramatically smaller form factor and extreme computing versatility – with little to no compromises in functionality, performance and/or power efficiency – Mini PCs are poised for wide adoption across a host of target applications. When customers hold these ultra-compact, half liter-sized devices in the palms of their hands, the choice between Mini PCs
and tower PCs is an easy one to make.
The founders of Simply NUC (www.simplynuc.com) were among the first to recognize the tremendous market opportunity for Mini PCs and has emerged as one of the leading Mini PC providers in the United States and Europe, achieving a staggering 476% revenue growth rate in a span of just two years . Simply NUC was also among the first Mini PC providers to look beyond the consumer market where Mini PCs gained their initial traction, sensing the strong potential for Mini PC adoption in embedded applications including digital signage, enterprise collaboration and conferencing, edge computing, industrial and far beyond.
To effectively penetrate these markets, however, Simply NUC would need to ensure longer product support lifecycles than what’s typically needed for consumer-grade Mini PCs. A two to three-year lifecycle simply isn’t enough for customers in commercial and industrial domains looking to avoid frequent, expensive qualification cycles. These customers need assurances that they can deploy Mini PCs for long periods of time, and in many cases, in harsh environmental conditions where wear and tear would compromise a consumer grade device.
Intel’s NUC family has evolved a lot over the years, but the core goals remain the same: to deliver a lot of performance in a small form-factor. The latest NUC, built around the Quartz Canyon platform, is bigger than most others, but it also packs a real performance punch – and even offers a bit of modularity.
Over the years we’ve seen a number of NUC-like mini PCs with AMD processors. But now a company that’s best known for selling NUCs is getting in on the action. Heck, the company even has NUC in the name. Simply NUC’s new Sequoia computer is a small desktop PC powered by an AMD Ryzen Embedded processor.
SimplyNUC, a maker of ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) PCs, has introduced its first PCs that use AMD’s Ryzen Embedded processors. The Sequoia units are rugged commercial systems designed for applications like edge data analytics, electronic kiosks, and digital signage that can withstand up to 95% of relative humidity as well as temperatures as high as 60°C.
Here at Simply NUC we strive to bring technological solutions to all points and places in life. From the office to the home we seek to make a difference.
But then there are moments when even we are surprised and proud of the impact one of our solutions can have.
Meet James, an 11-year-boy like any other, yet just as unique as any.
His father emailed us and shared this simple and moving story and graciously offered for us to share it.
“We have a 11-year-old boy, James who has special needs and a rare genetic condition. He is nonverbal.
We have been using Lumo play for a while and it has been magical for James development. It captures his attention immediately with the interactive floor set up. Each game provides a different experience, but they all encourage his hand to eye coordination and motor skills. For us as parents it’s amazing to see his enjoyment at interacting and achieving a response from his physical movements.
The setup of the equipment is so straight forward. We have the projector mounted in the ceiling and connected to the NUC box which runs the Lumo software. The NUC box is so compact and unobtrusive but packs a punch to power the motion detection from the connected camera.
We are so delighted with the setup and software and it’s such a revelation that this works so well encouraging James capabilities.”
We are both honored and inspired to know the difference the LUMOplay solution has made in James’ life.
