What is VESA?

VESA describes a standard for mountings which can be mostly found with displays. By means of these mountings Mini-PCs can be fixed to displays or displays can be fixed to walls. Which VESA standards there are and which of spo-comm's Mini-PCs are VESA compatible you will find in the following article.

What is VESA?

The word VESA is an acronym and means “Video Electronics Standards Association”. Its name stands for an organization with the same name. This organization sets the standards for wall-, ceiling- and also display mountings.

How can I measure the VESA standard?

Which VESA standard you need can be found out very easily by measuring both horizontal and vertical distances between the screw centers at the back of the display (or PC).

Which VESA standards are there?

VESA sets three standards, because many displays and PCs have the same standardized measurements.

These are:

•    VESA MIS-D
75x75 or 100x100 mm
24-inch screen minimum

•    VESA MIS-E
200x100 and/or 200x200 mm

•    VESA MIS-F
400x200 mm; 400x400 mm; 600x200 mm; 600x400 mm; 800x400 mm
31-inch screen minimum

Which spo-books are VESA compatible?

•    spo-book ELIX H81
•    spo-book BOX N2930
•    spo-book CORE
•    spo-book MOVE N3160
•    spo-book RUGGED HM87
•    spo-book WINDBOX II Quad

28 Sep 2017 Array ( [id] => 284 [title] => Goodbye Tower-PCs: Mini-PCs conquer our offices [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => For already quite a long time now Mini-PCs are being used in the industrial sector. Furthermore they’ve found their places in many offices. And this has a good reason: Since Tower-PCs need a lot of space and affect the soundscape at working places in a negative way, they are often replaced by fanless Mini-PCs, which help prevent annoying background noises. And even with their compact design the PCs have a high processing power. Read on and find out what makes a Mini-PC adequate for your office. [description] =>

Why a Mini-PC should definitely be used at your working space

Long story short: We have collected the most important advantages of our Mini-PCs for you.

Benefits of your office Mini-PC:

•    Reduction of background noises
•    Energy-efficient
•    Space-saving
•    Efficient working through high processor power
•    Longevity

Does that sound nice or what? But talking big is easy. Here’s how the above-mentioned aspects come off.

Reduction of background noises:

One of the most significant things which affect the volume of a PC is the cooling system. Because they are much
quieter than PCs with an active cooling, especially passively cooled systems help creating a comfortable working
atmosphere.

What you should not forget when thinking about reducing the sound, is the choice of the hard drive.
Choosing a passively cooled system with an SSD makes it possible to work completely silent.

Energy-efficient:

We all know that the power consumption of a Mini-PC is in general lower than the consumption of a
Tower-PC and since there’s no active cooling system that has to be active, you can easily safe some energy costs.
                     
Also, who would have thought that even in this point the SSD is one of the main reasons for it (see also
our article “What is the difference between HDD and SSD?”).

Space-saving:

Obvious one, isn't it?

Efficient working through high processor power:

Using desktop-CPUs for Mini-PCs is very common. The same applies to dedicated graphics chips. This way even
in the smallest PC-housings benchmarks beyond good and evil can be reached.

Longevity:

Especially affects our passively cooled systems:
Considering there are no cooling fins or heat pipes, the cooling system can’t fall out, which means the Mini-PCs
have a higher expected lifetime. It also applies to SSDs, which can – compared to HDDs – note several writing cycles. 

Examples for Mini-PCs you can use in your office:

•    spo-book WINDBOX III Advanced
•    spo-book WINDBOX II Quad
•    spo-book NANO H110

Goodbye Tower-PCs: Mini-PCs conquer our offices

24 Aug 2017 Array ( [id] => 278 [title] => What’s new? PCIe 4.0, USB 3.2 und quick guides for our Mini-PCs [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => With PCIe 4.0 and USB 3.2 new standards will double the data rates, graphics cards are becoming more expensive and from now on, we have short instructions for most of our spo-books. [description] =>

Almost done: PCI Express 4.0

The next PCIe generation is soon to be completed: The PCI-SIG (Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group) has introduced version 0.9 of the new 4.0 standard, which is expected to double the data rate compared to current PCIe 3.0. However, that PCIe 4.0 will actually be installed in systems, can take until 2019. Nevertheless, the PCI-SIG has also already promised the standard 5.0, once again with a doubling of bandwidth. We will see, when this will be found in our Mini-PCs.

Rising prices for graphics cards: spo-book KUMO IV not affected

Due to the current hype around mining the cryptocurrency Ethereum, powerful mid-range graphics cards like Geforce GTX 1060 and 1070, as well as Radeon RX 580 and 570, are sold out and can be, if at all, only purchased for high prices. Fortunately our high-end Mini-PC spo-book KUMO IV is not affected. The GTX 1060 is already integrated on the mainboard.

Even faster: USB 3.2 announced

Recently the USB 3.0 Promoter Group has introduced a new standard. USB 3.1 is now followed by 3.2, which should result in doubling the data rates to 20 Gbit/s. In order to achieve these transmission rates, of course, all devices and cables used must meet the new standard. Until the first devices will be equipped with USB 3.2 ports, however, it can take another year. But the goal of the new version is already public: The flexible USB Type C port should become standard in the PC industry and replace the widely used Type A interface. We will see, if this will be that easy.

Easy startup procedure: Quick guides for spo-comm Mini-PCs

Anyone who needs help with the startup or mounting of his spo-book, or with BIOS settings like Wake On LAN or Restore on AC Power Loss, can now get help easily. From now on, quick guides for almost all spo-comm Mini-PCs are available on our website. They can be downloaded on the product page under the tab “Product details & downloads” and can also be found on our driver sticks.
