GIADA Launches ISC-261 Palm-Sized Industrial PC for in- and Outdoor Use
Jan. 23, 2019 – Shenzhen, China – Giada, a provider of embedded PCs, embedded motherboards, server and storage appliances, is proud to announce its latest industrial PC, the ISC-261. The ISC-261 joins the AS20 in Giada’s family of Industrial PCs and industrial embedded motherboards as an industrial control PC, or sturdy option for demanding retail and (outdoor) digital signage.
Available in two configurations, with Intel® Celeron® N3350 for maximum performance, or Intel® Atom™ x5-E3930 designed for extended operating ranges, the ISC-261 excels through its high-efficiency processing and rugged design aimed at industrial use. The Celeron® N3350 powered ISC-261 is optimized for performance in regulated environments along with an operator, while the Atom™ x5-E3930 powered version is certified for use in -20°C to 60°C (approximately -4~140℉) environments, ideal for remote locations and situations where minimum human interaction is required, or possible.
Powered by Giada’s popular AP23 Pico-sized industrial control board, the ISC-261 is built on an industrial pedigree. With the AS20 aimed at pure industrial control, the ISC-261 offers a more versatile approach to both Industrial and retail options thanks to its advanced thermal design.
Flexible configurations for shelf displays in retail
The indoor variant of the ISC-261 is powered by an Intel® Celeron® N3350 Apollo Lake CPU, and delivers all-around performance on both CPU and Graphics level, up to a 4K resolution (HDMI) thanks to its Intel HD 500 graphics. To provide flexible display connection choices for customers, the PC supports either an HDMI port (up to 3840 x 2160 pixels @30Hz) or VGA port (1920 x 1080 pixels @60Hz). This variant, which can offer an operating temperature range from 0° C to 60° C (approximately 32° F to 140° F), is very suitable for digital signage, such as shelf displays in retail environments.
Excellent option of outdoor and DS solutions
For out-door and wide-temperature ranges, the ISC-261 with Intel® Atom x5-E3930 can operate -20° C to 60° C. Meanwhile, its sturdy industrial casing has been optimized to dissipate heat, keeping internal temperatures as low as possible without using an active fan. Its small size and fanless design make the ISC-261 ideal to implement in dirty environments unsuitable for actively cooled PCs. These features make the ISC-261 an excellent option of outdoor digital signage solutions for marine, food factories, steel mills and gas pumps.
Ideal choice for semi-out door applications

Many of these cabinets are placed in semi-outdoor environments. The ISC-261 with fanless design, industrial-grade systems and extended temperature tolerance ( -20°C to 60°C), can work for long hours in variable weather conditions and harsh environments. It’s an ideal choices for digital signage solutions in the semi-outdoor applications, such as intelligent express cabinets.
Broad I/O options
