Impressive Performance in a Tiny Machine
The ClearCube C4Pi Thin Client is a high-performance device in a package about the size of a computer mouse. This device is the remote computing solution for organizations needing resilient, dual-display, desktop computer configurations in high end emulation, smart home hub, networked AI core, and media center initiatives.
The C4Pi Thin Client excels wherever a robust remote access client is required—enterprise desktops, state and local government, hospitals, financial services, retail, kiosk applications, and more. It supports extra RAM to run Windows or other demanding software in a compact machine. Enterprises receive significantly enhanced CPU, GPU, and I/O performance in a similar form factor and footprint as its predecessors.
The C4Pi is powered by a quad-core, 1.5GHz Broadcom BCM2711B0 64-bit CPU for a notable performance improvement over previous generation models. Dynamic graphics and multimedia efficiencies facilitate a user desktop experience in many graphics-intensive applications, while packing in sufficient power to compete with entry-level x86 PCs.
The Thin Client reduces CPU consumption by offloading video decompression from its CPU to its native hardware using H.264 decoding. C4Pi features include two micro HDMI® ports, Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU for graphics, and up to 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM that can output 4k video at 60 FPS. True Gigabit Ethernet and 2.4GHz/5GHz wireless LAN provide full-speed network connectivity with no bottlenecks. A pair of USB 3.0 in addition to the usual USB 2.0 offers massive bandwidth boost and high-speed connectivity to external storage and accelerators. Bluetooth 5.0 (BLE) provides the flexibility of making the C4Pi Thin Client IoT solution even better. The functionality offers improved speed, distance, and throughput with power saving capabilities and blazing-fast data transfer speeds to accelerate workloads. PoE-enabled capability simplifies networking cabling and eliminates the need to run high voltage power to the C4Pi endpoint device, enabling centralized energy management for time and mission-critical scenarios. Administrators can implement network adds, moves, and changes quickly with no delays in completing upgrades or modifications.
Enclosed in an official ClearCube case designed with maximum ventilation and heat dissipation capabilities, a heavy-duty fan supplies the necessary airflow for simple, passive cooling in enterprise scenarios. Heat sinks attached to the top of the SoC reduces the risk of hardware failure from overheating, allowing administrators to extract even further performance from the Thin Client.
