Shuttle introduces the DS61, a new barebone that measures just 190mm x 165mm x 43mm (D x W x H). It comes with an Intel H61 Express based motherboard and supports nearly all Intel LGA1155 desktop processors. Shuttle says the MSRP is 172EUR (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, today announces the introduction of a particularly
robust PC platform for Intel desktop processors.
The DS61 opens up a range of applications that in the past were only
accessible with larger, extremely costly or less powerful solutions.
Shuttle's new development combines the computing power of multi-core
desktop processors with compact dimensions – and at an affordable
"The DS61 assists our partners from the digital signage sector in the
processing of high-resolution, compute-intensive content," says Tom
Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH.
"What's more, the potential applications are incredibly diverse thanks
to the compact format combined with excellent performance and
The robust black steel chassis measures a mere 19 x 16.5 x 4.3 cm
(DWH). The machine's motherboard, developed specifically by the
company for this format, is based on the versatile H61 Express chipset
which supports nearly all Intel processors for socket LGA1155. The
DS61 is compatible with all Celeron, Pentium and Core processors up to
a TDP of 65 W. DDR3 memory up to a total of 16 GB can be installed in
the two SO-DIMM slots.
The chassis has space for one 2.5" hard disk or one SSD drive. Thanks
to its Mini PCIe expansion slot, the DS61 can support an mSATA drive
or, for instance, a 3G/WLAN module. A wired network connection is
provided by two teaming-compatible networking interfaces for Gigabit
Ethernet. A bootable card reader is located on the front panel. One
RS-232 port and one RS-232/422/485 port are available for control and
monitoring applications. The DS61 also has USB 3.0, HDMI, DVI and
The Shuttle Barebone DS61 is outstandingly robust thanks to its tough
chassis, and with an operating temperature range of 0-50 °C it is
suitable for use in the most demanding environments. The supplied VESA
mount and numerous threaded holes enable the DS61 to be fitted almost
anywhere. If because of space constraints (e.g. in the case of fixed
installation) the machine cannot be switched on by pressing the front
power button, it can be powered on by a separate remote line.
An active dual-fan heatpipe cooling system ensures whisper-quiet
operation and system stability. The energy supply is provided by an
external 90 W power unit.
