    Shuttle XPC Nano NC03U7 i7-7500U DDR4 Barebone Product Description



    Shuttle's XPC nano Series gets a performance boost


    The NC03U series is powered by Intel's power-saving ULV (ultra-low-voltage) processors of the Kaby Lake generation. Compared with the NC02U series, it brings higher clock frequencies, improved graphics performance and support of faster DDR4 memory up to 2x 16 GB. Furthermore, one 2.5" drive up to 15 mm in height as well as one M.2-2280 NVMe SSD card can be installed. The DisplayPort connector delivers video resolutions of up to 4K at 60 frames per second while a second display can be connected via HDMI. USB peripherals use either the type A or type C ports. Professional users will appreciate Intel Gigabit-LAN and one serial port which indicates what purposes the NC03U series is mainly intended for: Digital Signage, POS, control, office or even multimedia.

    This device is classed as a technical information equipment (ITE) in class B and is intended for use in living room and office. The CE-mark approves the conformity by the EU directives:

    (1) 2004/108/EC relating to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC),

    (2) 2006/95/EC relating to Electrical Equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits (LVD),

    (3) 2009/125/EC relating to ecodesign requirements for energy-related products (ErP),

    (4) 1999/5/EC related to Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE)




    [1] How to convert DisplayPort into HDMI/DVI

    The DisplayPort outputs can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:

    DELOCK 82590: 1 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)

    DELOCK 82435: 5 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)

    The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter).

    However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter. In this case an active adapter like Delock 62496 is required.

    Connecting a UHD/4K display via the present HDMI port means the refreshing rate is limited to 24 Hz. 60 Hz can only be achieved by using the DisplayPort port. Should your display have a HDMI 2.0 connector, a refreshing rate of 60 Hz can be achieved by using an active adapter such as the Club 3D CAC-1070 for example.

    [2] Audio connector

    The 3.5 mm audio jack at the back panel of this device supports both a 4-pole connector for headphones and microphone and headphones with only a 3-pole connector. Headsets with separate connectors for headphones and microphone, though, require an appropriate adapter, if also the microphone should be used.

    [3] Caution: For high ambient temperatures over 35 °C we strongly recommend to use SSDs (supporting at least 70 °C) instead of hard disks.

    [4] Power-on after Power Fail:

    The BIOS setup provides a "Power-on after Power Fail" function that can be found under "Power Management Configuration". This function determines the PC's behaviour after power failure. As a matter of the nature of this function, it may fail after short power failures. This is why this PC also comes with a hardware-based solution. By removing Jumper JP1 (please refer to the Quick Installation Guide), the system will start unconditionally once power is applied.
