In a compact brick size package of only 8” x 5” x 3”, this high performance computer is under 3lbs and operates silently, with no moving parts.
A solid aluminum chassis combined with a passive cooling system makes the iBrick computer well suited to environments that experience high shock and vibration as well as extreme temperatures. The iBrick is specifically designed for the specialized requirements in the transportation, public safety, utility, military and industrial automation industries.
SmallPC’s unique heat pipe assembly, combined with a set of waterproof connectors and cables, provides a high performance computer that is sealed to dirt, dust and water.

Robert Vance, Small PC’s Engineering Manager said “Even I was surprised with the cooling performance of our passive heat sink, and I designed it! We made changes and upgrades to the cooling solution looking for a 5% improvement and we ended up with a 10% improvement.”
