XPC slim DS20U5

Fanless Slim PC with a Comet-Lake-U processor in industrial design

The DS20U-series is a fanless slim PC with a robust 1.3-litre metal chassis and exceptional connectivity. It supports two digital video outputs for UHD/4K displays and one tradi-tional D-Sub/VGA connector. The built-in Intel "Comet-Lake-U" processor provides ample performance for playback of 2160p/60 videos. Installation of components goes straight forward, as there is plenty of interior space for two memory modules, one 2.5" drive and an M.2-2280 SSD card. Optionally, an LTE module can be fitted in the 2,5" bay using the WWN03 accessory. Thanks to its passive cooling, the system is virtually maintenance-free and is approved for 24/7 nonstop operation. It is big on performance, yet extremely energy-efficient. The Shuttle XPC slim Barebone DS20U series is an ideal platform for professional applications such as digital signage, POS, Kiosk, Thin Client, Office PC and Multimedia.

View as a photorealistic 3D model

The 3D model can be moved 360° and viewed in minute detail by zooming in. Opened on a smartphone or tablet, it can be displayed and marvelled at as a 3D object in a real environment. By the way: All this works without app installation on iOS and Android devices.

Experience in AR via smartphone

Up to 64 GB of RAM

Modern professional applications consume a particularly large amount of memory. With two slots and therefore 64 GB of RAM in total, this Mini-PC can handle any demanding task.

Space for a 2.5" drive

As a complement to an NVMe SSD, this model also offers a home to classic data storage devices in 2.5" format*. Hard disks and SSDs in this format offer many terabytes of storage space.
(*Up to a height of 12.5 mm)

Add-ons via M.2 module

Two M.2 slots make it possible to add data mediums and additional modules, for example for WLAN or wireless. Thanks to the PCI Express connection, large quantities of data can be transported in a short time via the M.2 slot.


  • M.2-2280 for an NVMe SSD
  • M.2-2230 for a WLAN module

100% fanless

Energy-saving technology combined with an ingenious cooling system mean no fans are required. No operating noise at all, fewer moving parts and therefore lower maintenance costs too.

How does this work?

Thanks to a simple physical principle, known as convection. Warm air rises while entraining colder air at the same time. This permanent flow passes through machines or travels along surfaces. This prevents a build-up of heat and ensures reliable cooling.
No fan

Reading and writing memory cards

Discreetly hidden in the front panel is an SD card reader that allows convenient handling of memory cards, such as those often found in smartphones, cameras, microcomputers or drones.

Maximum flexibility in the choice of monitor

Three different graphics outputs, both with digital and analogue signals, offer great flexibility in the choice of the display. This model features an HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort and VGA port.

DisplayPort 1.2




Particularly easy installation

The memory modules, the 2.5" drive and both M.2 cards are easily accessible via two covers secured by a screw. The transformation of a barebone into a complete system is done particularly quickly in this way.

Remote Power On

Wired remote starting

This model features a remote power-on connection. Any two-pin cable can be used to connect dedicated buttons via pins on the back and they then allow the machine to be started remotely.
Dual Network

Two network connections

This feature is particularly interesting for vital network applications – this is because two Gigabit Ethernet connectors allow physically separate networks, offer failover and load balancing.

USB transmission with 10 Gbit per second

External devices or data storage media with a USB interface benefit from bandwidths of 10 Gbit/s. Portable SSDs or hard drives which support the relevant standard can theoretically transmit up to 1.25 gigabyte per second.
