The TrimSlice is based on the nVidia Tegra 2 – a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 at 1 GHz with ultra-low-power GeForce GPU with 1 GB DDR2 RAM soldered on-board, and is built into a nickel-plated metal case of 5.1″ x 3.7″ x 0.6″ (130mm x 95mm x 15mm). The Pro model incorporates a built-in 32 GB Sata SSD, and all models have an SD slot on the front and additional micro-SD slot behind a secured door on the side. Both SD ports support SDHC up to 32 GB.
Trim Slice supports HDMI 1.3a 1080p and a 2nd DVI-D port supporting resolutions up to 1680 x 1050. 5.1 channel audio is available through HDMI and through S/PDIF. In addition there are standard 3.5mm jacks for stereo line-out and line-in. Analog video input port will be made available in the future when software support for the feature becomes available. The device has a Gigabit Ethernet port implemented through one of the Tegra 2 PCIe ports and a built-in 802.11n WiFi. Bluetooth is provided as a USB dongle. TrimSlice incorporates 4 USB 2 ports – two on the back and two on the front. On the front panel there is also a micro-USB connector and a mini connector for RS232.
