1.- Introducción y Características Técnicas

Cada vez mas el mercado demanda equipos compactos, silenciosos y con unas prestaciones adecuadas para navegar, ofimática y juegos 2D. Es precisamente este mercado el que mas ha crecido estos últimos años. Shuttle denomina SlimPC a esta gama. Equipos con un máximo de 1,5 litros, con opción de colgarse detrás de la TV/Monitor y con potencia mas que suficiente para el uso comentado. Este modelo es la continuación del DS47; el chasis es exactamente igual, pero en su interior alberga un procesador Celeron de la Gama Broadwell integrado. Para funcionar solo necesitaremos memoria DDR3 SO-DIMM y un disco de 2,5”; y a disfrutar. No dejéis de leer y podréis ver hasta donde puede llegar el compacto de Shuttle.

Shuttle DS57

Shuttle es una marca pionera en la creación de equipos compactos. Fundada en 1983 tiene entre sus hitos el haber desarrollo la primera placa base de 17x17 cm del mundo para el mercado OEM. Es uno de los líderes en el sector de MiniPC’s, y actualmente ha ampliado su mercado con equipos TodoEnUno y una nueva división de NAS.

[1] Jumper for COM port configuration

Pin 9 of the COM-Port is a multi-functional signal. Based on the Jumper JP1 configuration on the mainboard, it can be configured as Ring Indicator (RI) or external power supply with a voltage level of either 5V or 12V. Each COM port can be configured separately.

The operating mode of COM 1 can be set to RS232, RS422 or RS485 in the BIOS. COM 2 supports the RS232 mode only.

[2] The Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) is the successor of the LVDS interface und connects the onboard graphics with a built-in display panel. This port is helpful, if the mainboard is used in a chassis with an integrated panel with known parameters for resolution and refresh rate. The VGA-BIOS must be especially customised by Shuttle for the used panel.

[3] mini-SATA (mSATA)

This is a newer industry standard which converts the electrical SATA interface to the pysical "Mini PCI Express" mini card form factor.

[4] Four pin header at the back panel

This header allows for connecting an external power button.

It also provides 5V DC voltage for external devices and the Clear CMOS function.

[5] Caution: for high ambient temperature over 35°C we strongly recommend to use SSDs (supporting at least 70°C).

[6] 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 the Shuttle Slim-PC Barebone DS57U also comes with a hardware-based solution. By removing Jumper J7 (please refer to the quick user guide) the system will start unconditionally once power is applied.

[7] How to convert DisplayPort into HDMI/DVI

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

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

DELOCK 82435: 5m, 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.
