Giada has been making small computer systems, including a number of different bare-bones machines for a long time. The company is back with a new machine that is shipping soon called the D300. This new computer uses third-generation Intel Core processors.
The D300 family of machines also features support for the Trusted Platform Module providing security with high levels of data encryption. That feature will allow the new bare-bones system to be used in IT departments or large enterprises. The manufacturer says that the small bare-bones system is ideal for industrial control applications, smart traffic control systems, security and surveillance systems, commercial terminals, and other applications where a small compact size is desired.
The D300 computer measures 236 mm x 182 mm x 50 mm and features the Intel HM77 Express chipset. The machine supports Core i3, i5, and i7 processors with a TDP of no more than 35 watts. The computer system has two SO-DIMM slots for RAM supporting up to 16 GB of DDR3-1333/1600 RAM. The board used inside the machine also has a pair of mini-PCIe slots allowing the installation of additional peripherals.
The front panel of the computer features ports for a microphone and headphones, two USB 3.0 ports, and two serial COM ports. A version the machine is also available that lacks those COM ports. The back of machine has three additional audio connectors, a pair of Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports, and the DVI, VGA, and HDMI connectivity. Pricing for the machines will depend on the package chosen and will be announced at a later date.
