The new NUC, model DE3815TYKH, is ideal for kiosks, point-of-sale applications and digital signage. It also is expected to be relevant to the space-constraints of urban Asian homes and to schools as well.

Software that has already been validated for the NUC include the Xen Desktop 7 from Citrix, targeted at enterprises and smaller businesses; Citrus Fusion, expected to be used by SMBs and schools, as well as Skolelinux, for schools, said John Deatherage, Director of product marketing, Intel.
"We believe it takes an ecosystem to really drive scale and make things happen," said Deatherage. "It is not about PCs any more." He noted that vendors like Gigabyte and Asus have already leveraged devices off Intel's NUC design, while other vendors have chosen to develop their own versions of a NUC.
