Reimagining Computing So You Can Imagine New Solutions

In business today, one size does not fit all. Intel developed the Intel® NUC Element line of products to give you a better way to design, build, and service custom deployments to meet a wide range of customer needs.

With the performance and reliability you’ve come to expect from Intel, this flexible, modular computing solution is another example of how Intel-designed innovations are answering the world’s toughest business and education challenges.

From rugged systems in unique environments to full systems in a business or vertical environment, Intel® NUC Element product let you deliver ideal, custom solutions with minimal R&D time.

The Intel® NUC Element family includes:

  • Intel® NUC Compute Element with processor, memory, storage, and I/O
  • Intel® NUC Board & Assembly Element with multiple I/O options for integrated solutions
  • Intel® NUC Chassis Element for collaboration or rugged environments

How It Works

To build a customized deployment for your market, start with an Intel NUC Compute Element with the Intel® processor you need. Select SKUs also come with the Intel vPro® platform for remote manageability, hardware-enhanced security, and PC fleet stability.

Pair the Intel NUC Compute Element with an Intel® NUC Board Element qualified for 24/7 sustained operation or with your own or a third-party board. Use an Intel NUC Chassis Element to build a full mini PC solution for collaboration or rugged environments.

Intel® NUC Compute Element

Every deployment begins with an Intel® NUC Compute Element. Available with the full range of powerful Intel® processors, the two Intel NUC Compute Elements also offer memory, storage, and multiple I/O options—all in a surprisingly small package.

To integrate compute with connectivity for stationary or mobile systems, pair an Intel NUC Compute Element with an Intel® NUC Board Element. To build an I/O-rich collaboration solution, integrate with an Intel® NUC Pro Chassis Element. For deployments in harsh environments, integrate with an Intel® NUC Rugged Chassis Element.

Intel® NUC Board and Assembly Element

The Intel® NUC Board and Assembly Elements are ideal for providers creating integrated systems. Available as modular boards or as assemblies with added rack and thermal solutions, they are qualified for 24/7 sustained operations and feature limited voltage variability and an internal DC connector.

Pair with a compatible Intel NUC Compute Element to build a small, integrated, high-performance system for a range of verticals.

With two configuration options to choose from, you have flexibility to configure your system based on your needs.

Intel® NUC Chassis Element

Each Intel® NUC Chassis Element is designed to deliver years of nonstop performance in a variety of business, educational, and industrial environments. Every chassis is compatible with any Intel® NUC Compute Element, making it easy to upgrade to more powerful processors as needs change.

The Intel® NUC Rugged Chassis Element is designed for harsh and extreme environments with one of three integrated Intel NUC Rugged Board Elements.

The Intel® NUC Pro Chassis Element comes in two space-saving, I/O-rich designs to support all-day collaboration.

Redefining System Integration

Simple, Flexible, Powerful

The benefits of the Intel® NUC 8 Compute Element and the Intel® NUC 11 Compute Element are their size, flexibility, and I/0, which make it easy to create small, custom solutions. The compact size of both generations of the Intel® NUC Compute Element coupled with an Intel® NUC Board Element, gives you the flexibility to design the exact solution your customer or market demands, delivering powerful systems that can be integrated or deployed in more places than ever before.

Easy to Upgrade and Service

The ability to swap out a component for upgrade makes the Intel® NUC Element family of products a natural choice for your commercial and consumer customers. It also makes upselling easier because you can simply snap in an Intel® NUC Compute Element with a more powerful processor. Whether you are an MSP remotely servicing business clients or a channel partner working with customers in the field, it’s simple to replace an Intel® NUC Compute Element, to get a malfunctioning system back up and running quickly. In addition, systems with Intel vPro® technology can be remotely managed and remediated.

Intel Innovation, Your Integration

By transforming the boundaries of how systems can be built and serviced, Intel is once again revolutionizing computing in order to help you succeed. Effectively cut your R&D time with a modular solution innovated and designed by Intel that enables you to bring your product to market faster. These flexible, modular computing building blocks let you integrate compute and connectivity into almost anything—which means your solutions can be found in unexpected places and in amazing new products.
