Shuttle introduces it's first Android Mini PC. The DSA2LS features the Freescale i.MX 6DualLite (i.MX6DL) 1GHz dual-core processor and is equipped with 1GB DDR3 memory and 4GB internal flash memory.
Target applications include digital signage, POS, automation, monitoring and thin client/remote access. The DSA2LS is passively cooled and has an average power consumption of 4.2W to 6.3W.
Pricing is 131EUR (excl. VAT).
Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH, the
European subsidiary of Shuttle Inc., one of the leading developers and
manufacturers of compact PC solutions such as the world-renowned XPC
Mini-PC Barebones, now introduces robust, ARM-based Android PCs.
The DSA2LS is equipped with a Freescale i.MX 6DualLite (i.MX6DL) 1 GHz
dual-core processor and 1 GB of DDR3 memory. It comes with 4 GB Flash
memory already fitted for apps, media and operating system which can
be expanded up to 64 GB with a theft-protected SDHC card reader.
Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) is pre-installed and prepared for new
versions with an integrated update function (online or offline).
Its case is constructed of high-strength steel, measures 14.2 x 19 x
3.5 cm (DWH) and houses an internal 10 W power supply unit. Compared
to simple HDMI sticks, the key features of the Android DSA2LS are its
robustness and versatile connection options. On the front and back are
HDMI, VGA, 4x USB 2.0, Line-OUT, RS-232 and RJ45 ports. Wireless LAN
(150 Mbit/s) is provided for data transmission.
The two monitor outputs are each suitable for 1080p screens, arranged
horizontally or vertically. When the two ports are being used
simultaneously, the system automatically switches to 720p resolution.
The graphics unit of the multimedia processor which is driven by two
ARM Cortex-A9 cores allows advanced 3D and 2D display as well as the
seamless playback of full-HD videos.
"This solution can be used, for instance, as a reliable media player,
suitable for energy-saving continuous operation," says Tom Seiffert,
Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. “Realising
ideas that no-one before has had or finding solutions for everyday
situations – thanks to the development environment provided free of
charge by Google, anyone can easily become an app developer for
Both the serial interface and the cabled network interface with WOL
make the DSA2LS a versatile platform for custom solutions in the areas
of digital signage, POS, automation, monitoring and thin client/remote
access. With the supplied VESA mount and numerous threaded holes on
the case, it can be installed at almost any imaginable location –
flat, upright or even overhead. The power supply unit is integrated in
the case to help keep the installation location tidy. An Always-ON
switch can be activated for use in inaccessible environments that
starts the machine as soon as it is connected to the power supply.
The DSA2LS does away with fans at all and therefore operates
completely silently. As a side effect, there is also no need for
regular maintenance since the machine has no moving parts. The
approved ambient temperature range for operation is between 0 °C and
45 °C, while energy consumption ranges from 4.2 - 6.3 W on average.
