about giada

are small, power efficient but powerfull embedded PCs (x86 and ARM, tested the F300, 5 years later: 30x boxes still working perfectly fine, not even a power supply failed!) 😀

some are industrial grade or medical grade (please test before use!)

imho interesting devices:



  • rockchip 3399 speedy arm
  • has dual hdmi
  • has com port
  • fanless (so no problem with dirty environment or dust settling in the device = make it even more reliable especially for long-term 24-7 use)
  • 238EUR inkl 19% MwSt

possible alternative:


  • has dual lan (good for making firewalls/routers)
  • fanless (so no problem with dirty environment or dust settling in the device = make it even more reliable especially for long-term 24-7 use)
  • 714EUR inkl 19% MwSt

support is working 😀
