10ZiG 58xxq: Hardware 


 


 

 



10ZiG 58xxq thin client

The label on the side of this 10ZiG thin client identifies it as a 5817q. Although similar in style, it is larger than the Clientron U700/U800 based thin clients that preceded it - as shown in the photo with the U800 based Dell FX170 to the right.

The series was launched in February 2015.

"Providing the improved computing horsepower is an Intel Celeron J1900 quad core processor; the result of the latest Bay Trail chipset technology, increasing processing speeds to 2.0 GHz, while utilizing Intel's SpeedStep Technology to deliver speeds up to 2.42 GHz in 'boost' mode. The 5800q Series comes standard with 2 GB of RAM (upgradeable to 8GB) giving user's supreme multitasking abilities, regardless of operating system. The 10ZiG 5800q Series is equipped with solid state storage ranging from 1GB to 128GB. The 5800q Series is the perfect combination of power and flexibility, all while providing impressive energy efficiency (just 8 watts under full load)."

* USB: Currently (August 2017) the 10ZiG website shows the 5800q as having 5 x USB2.0 and 2 x USB3.0 sockets. My example only has a single USB3.0 socket.

Power Supply

The unit requires a 12V supply and uses a conventional 5.5mm/2.1mm coax connector.

Expansion

10ZiG 58xxq Circuit Board As usual, clicking on the photo (right) will take you to a larger scale photos of the circuit board.

The case is fairly compact in size so there is little space to fit anything internally.

Flash: The Flash memory is replaceable. It's a DOM plugged into a 22-pin SATA connector connector. The disassembly instructions show you how to access it. The Intel datasheet tells me it is a SATA II port. The actual 16GB SATA DOM is an Innodisk SATA Slim 3MG-P.

RAM: The RAM is a conventional DDR3 SODIMM plugged into a socket fitted on the top of the board. The fitted 204-pin SODIMM was a 2GB Aplus Technology part A+NDD31066-2G. This is a DDR3 1066MHz PC3-8500 part. I also tried out a 4GB PC3L part (4GB 1Rx8 PC3L-12800S-11-12-B4) from Nanya that worked, so both types are supported.

USB: There are two USB sockets on the front panel, four on the rear, and one in a concealed panel on the top of the unit. As you can see in the picture at the top of the page one of the sockets is colour coded 'blue' and a USB3.0 socket. Current publicity material for the 58xxq says there are two USB3.0 sockets, and in the photos its neighbour has turned blue.

Mini PCI: There is an internal mini PCI socket where you could fit a wireless card. You can see from the photos below that it's not the easiest to access.

SATA: There is another on-board SATA socket with a power socket next to it. The pin furthest from the SATA socket carries +5V.

Other: If you remove the front panel you'll find a connector (CN10) behind the Mini PCI socket. I have no idea what it is for.

10ZiG 58xxq SATA DOM
The SATA DOM fitted to the 58xxq. Any replacement you fit cannot be more than 40mm deep otherwise you won't be able to refit the retaining bracket or, if more than a few mm more, the top cover.
