b401 soc system on chip


A standalone signage solution with the flexibility and expandability to support various applications and usage styles. Thanks to its built-in SoC (System on a Chip) controller, the PN-B401 delivers out-of-the-box digital signage solutions even without external devices such as PCs. What’s more, the PN-B401 comes standard with original software for simple content distribution and SHARP e-Signage S software for professional content creation and management.


Built-in SoC (System on a Chip)

The PN-B401 has a powerful integrated SoC controller driven by the Arm® Cortex®-A17 quad core processor (max. 1.8 GHz) with 2 GB memory and 8 GB storage. It integrates Android™ OS (4.4) and comes pre-installed with several types of signage support software. This means the PN-B401 is ready to display
signage right out of the box, even without a PC.



The PN-B401 features excellent image quality and is designed for flexibility in a variety of settings. It comes with an Intel® Mini OPS-compatible expansion slot that gives you the added choice of expandability: an HDBaseT™ receiver board that supports various types of media and control signals or a wireless board for easy wireless connection with multiple devices.



Whether in a landscape or portrait orientation, the PN-B401 can be installed face-up, face-down, or tilted forward or backward at an angle of up to 90 degrees. Designed for easy hanging installation, it can be suspended from four corners of the rear housing with wires. Such flexibility gives you more freedom to meet today’s demanding signage needs.

*1 Brightness depends on input mode and other picture settings. Brightness level will decrease slightly over the lifetime of the product. Due to the physical limitations of the equipment, it is not possible to maintain a precisely constant level of brightness.
* 2 Use a commercially available connection cable for PC and other video connections. *3 When using the monitor laying flat on a surface (when the monitor is tilted more than 20 degrees upward or downward from the perpendicular in relation to a level surface) the ambient temperature must be within the range of 0°C to 30°C. Temperature conditions may change when using the monitor together with the optional equipment. In such cases, check the temperature conditions specified by the optional equipment.
