Designed to be used in large and high or very high resolution signaling panels, the Shuttle DH270 Slim is designed to take up as little space as possible. But without sacrificing many of the features that stand out on the Intel LGA1151 platform. Like, for example, support for Intel Optane technology.
For the new Shuttle DH270, the manufacturer has decided to reuse the same box that already used the current model DS61. This box model has dimensions of 190 x 165 x 43 mm. With such a small size, it is easy to place this mini PC anywhere. Something that helps a lot the fact that the box carries numerous holes that allow it to be placed in any position, be it horizontal or vertical. It even has a VESA stand that would allow it to be placed on a wall.
The box is designed to withstand high temperatures in your environment. The manufacturer claims that it can perfectly perform its work, even with an external temperature of 50 ºC.
As for the motherboard it employs, it is based on the H270 chipset . And it is compatible with Skylake processors as well as the more modern Kaby Lake, which offers many opportunities to its users when looking for the processor that best suits the functions that they want to develop with it. Up to a maximum TDP of 65 W, that yes.
The Shuttle DH270 will have three HDMI outputs to signal three panels
One of the great advantages of the Shuttle DH270 are its three HDMI video outputs, located at the rear. Of these, only one of them is an HDMI 2.0 output, while the other two are of type 1.4b.
The I / O of this barebone is also quite complete. Thus, on the front the manufacturer has left space for two USB 3.0 type A connectors, a USB 3.0 type C, an SD card reader, a 3.5 mm mini jack for headphones and another for headphones. While on the back, this Shuttle has ports for two Gigabit Ethernet network cards, four USB 2.0 ports and two RS232 ports.
The internal storage is solved thanks to the inclusion of two M.2 ports, one of them for NVMe units, while the second one can be used for a Bluetooth wireless network card or WiFi.
The price of the Shuttle DH270 is 235 € + VAT.
