Fanless Network Appliance Based On Latest Intel Atom Platform (Elkhart Lake)

  • Intel Atom SoC (Elkhart Lake)
  • 1x DDR4 SO-DIMM
  • Up to 6x GbE RJ45 Ports & 2x Bypass
  • Wi-Fi module & 4G LTE/5G sub-6 module support
  • eMMC storage onboard, SATADOM optional
  • TPM support

The CASwell CAF-0100 is a fanless multi-networking appliance in desktop format. It offers superior energy efficiency and high performance in a compact form factor with its new Intel Atom processor and up to six high-speed Ethernet ports plus supporting Wi-Fi and mobile networks with 5G or 4G/LTE. The CAF-0100 is well suited for routing and other networking use in small to medium businesses (SMB) or small and home offices (SOHO), for example as dedicated firewall to protect network and data against unwanted intruders.

The CAF-0100 Is based on the latest Intel Atom x6000 processors (“Elkhart Lake”) with four cores but a model with two cores is also available for lighter usage. According to Intel, this Atom series of processors using the “Tremont” microarchitecture offers 70 percent more performance in single-threaded and 50 percent more speed in multi-threaded workloads than the previous generation, the widely used Atom x5- and x7-3900 “Apollo Lake” series like inside the fanless network appliance CAW-0111. The production node was also improved to 10 nanometer so the already good energy efficiency of the Intel Atom series of processors gets even better..

The CAF-0100 is also using up to 16 GB of DDR4 SO-DIMM main memory with IBECC, uses fast eMMC storage and has optional support for Wi-Fi and 4G LTE or 5G mobile communication. Access to cellular networks can be provided by M.2 modules via a specific daughter board while WiFi can be made available will a miniPCI Express module. With WiFi the CAF-0100 offers five Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports but waiving Wi-Fi enables six Ethernet ports. The CAF-0100 furthermore supports Ethernet Bypass Gen. 4.4 which can be added by option. Trusted Platform Module is supported with the necessary TPM header onboard.

Together with the new processors the CAF-0100 supports Intel’s OpenVINO toolkit, with pre-optimized libraries for artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and computer vision acceleration. Intel’s new Edge Software Hub is also supported so customers can acquire pre-optimized deployment-ready software packages optimized for Industrial, Retail and Vision, all of which additionally offer customizability.

The CASwell CAF-0100 is the ideal solution for SMB and SOHO to monitor network traffic, for bandwidth management or medical and dental imaging systems. This appliance can be configured according to customer demand.
