ARBOR’s ELIT-1060 triple display terminal is a rugged fanless mini PC powered by an Intel Celeron N6210 dual-core Elkhart Lake processor with two HDMI 2.0 ports and one DisplayPort connector each supporting up to 4Kp60 resolution.
The system comes with a 4GB DDR4 SO-DIMM, 32GB eMMC flash, two 2.5GbE Ethernet ports, an M.2 socket for wireless expansion, several USB 3.0/2.0 ports, and one RS232/422/485 serial port. While the company markets it for “high-intensity digital signage applications”, I could also see it being used in various other applications thanks to its networking capabilities and expansion ports.

The fairly wide temperature range, vibration and shock certifications, and 12V DC input might make it suitable for on-vehicle digital signage applications, for example driving multiple displays in a bus. The company ships the display terminal as a desktop device by default but also offers wall-mount and DIN-Rail mounting options.
ARBOR only supports Windows 10 /Windows 11 for the ELIT-1060 triple display terminal, but Linux might work too, barring any issue with the driver, as the UP Squared 2 SBC based on the same CPU supports Linux (Ubuntu and Yocto Project support).
ARBOR did not provide pricing and availability information. Further details, including a datasheet and a user manual with BIOS settings, can be found on the product page.
