The Ribbed Design Turns Akasa Newton S7 Case into a Heatsink

The Akasa Co. keeps releasing cases for system cards, intended for Intel NUC series mini PCs. The latest Akasa Newton S7 sample is aimed at Intel NUC7i5BNH, NUC7i5BNK, NUC7i3BNH and NUC7i3BNK sets boards, and the most important matter for replacing a standard case with a new one is aluminium utilization, providing passive CPU cooling. The framework upper lid and sides are made ribbed to perform the role of an effective heatsink.



On the front panel there are two USB 3.0 ports, the power button, the infrared sensor, as well as the headset and mic jack. The back panel has two connectors for removable antennas of wireless modules. Inside there is enough space for a 2.5-inch drive, not higher than 9.5 mm.


The Akasa Newton S7 framework’s modest dimensions (176.5 x 200 x 53.5 mm only) and the standard VESA mounting let fix this specialty on a display’s back panel.

The First Glimpse on NXP Signal Amplifier BGU8006

NXP Semiconductors company announces the release of a GPS signal amplifier BGU8006 destined primarily for the integration into mobile devices, tablets, navigators, photo- and video cameras. According to the words of the NXP representatives, their new model is the most bantam signal amplifier available in the market: BGU8006 dimensions equal to 0.65mm x 0.44mm x 0.2mm. Besides, this amplifier is characterized by the extremely low level of noise and the necessity to employ only a couple of external components to enable the device (decoupling capacitor and matching inductor).



The abundance of radio frequency signals serves the major impediment for the pure GPS signal reception. NXP BGU8006 has been developed with this thought in mind and is called to improve the reception of weak GPS signals by means of a dynamic rejection of strong signals released by the cellular and local wireless networks.


BGU8006 is based on QuBIC4Xi SiGe:C BiCMOS technology which is known to involve the …

ASRock Surfaces J3355B-ITX Mainboard

ASRock enters the market with a mainboard, targeting new Intel Apollo Lake CPUs (14 nm, Intel Goldmont micro-architecture). The J3355B-ITX model is thought to be integrated within laptops or entry-level all-in-one solutions. As seen from the codename, the board is developed in mini-ITX form-factor. It comes equipped with Intel Celeron J3355 processor, operating at 2.0-2.5 GHz frequency. The CPU features 10 W TDP; hence, cooling is backed by a noiseless passive cooler.



ASRock J3355B-ITX accommodates a pair of SO-DIMM slots for DDR3/DDRL3 modules with 1866 MHz frequency (up to 16 GB). The board comes with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 500 GPU that runs at 700 MHz. The connection of drives is realized via two SATA III ports. The incorporated PCIe 2.0 x16 slot is optimal for expansion cards, rather than a VGA card.


To continue, audio subsystem is based on 7.1-channel Realtek ALC887 controller, whereas network facilities are ensured with the help of Realtek RTL8111GR …
