Giada Technology, a manufacturer of compact desktop PCs, has announced the launch of a compact “Do-it-yourself” barebones-system: The D310. The D310 family is based on the third generation of Intel Core processors. The D310 compact systems are simple Barebones Systems using the Intel Celeron Processor 1037U. The assembly only requires three screws; two screws to open the chassis and one to fix the hard drive, allowing maximum efficiency in building your dream machine. In addition, support for the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) which provides extensive security with high levels of data encryption, allows the use of D310-based systems in various applications in IT departments of large enterprises.
The D310 system is also ideal for industrial control applications, smart traffic control systems, security and surveillance systems, commercial terminals and other similar applications which require small size, wide choice of interfaces, simplicity and reliability of use.
Featuring an ultra-compact size – only 236mm x 179mm x 50mm, the Giada D310 offers unprecedented performance in its size group thanks to the modern system logic – the Intel HM77 Express – and compatibility with 3rd generation Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 chips with a TDP reaching only 35W.
The Barebones Giada D310 is equipped with two SO-DIMM slots, which allows for the installation of up to 8GB of DDR3-1333/1600 RAM. The motherboard also features two Mini-PCIe slots which allows for the use of extra peripherals (1 x mSATA SSD; 1 x PCIe/USB). The 5.1 channel audio codec is based on the ALC662 and there is a 100M Ethernet port. The inside of the system allows for the installation of a 2.5 inch SATA drive.
The new 3rd generation Intel Core processors feature a powerful DirectX 11 core, which is compatible with a wide range of today’s 3D games and supports the majority of data rendering technologies of today. HDMI technologies with support for HDCP as well as an analog VGA interface are provided for video signal output.
The Giada D310 is equipped with a Wi-Fi module to support 802.11b/g/n network standards.
Giada’s developers took care in providing a complete range of modern interfaces and features for convenient operation whether the system is assembled for home, office or industrial use. For example, the front panel of the D310 features analog Jack connectors to plug a microphone and headphones, six USB 2.0 connectors and a serial COM head which are still quite common in IPCs today. These connectors will be sufficient to use a wide range of external devices.
Internal interfaces include TPM connector, a SATA port with power connector and a COM port.
Thanks to the VESA Mount fixing mechanism, users can enjoy flexibility in installation and comfort of use. For example, the D310 can be easily attached to the back of a monitor or TV set.
The Giada D310 Barebones-system is equipped with a Phoenix EFI BIOS with support for an ACPI interface. The systems are fully compatible with the majority of popular operating systems including Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Linux.
