Is the intrusion detection brought out to a connector on any of the 8th gen NUC's? or any plans on next gens?

We integrate the NUC into a device that would benefit from being able to determine if anyone has opened the case and would very much like an integrated solution in the NUC, to be able to disable functionality and register timestamps etc of when the event occurred. is this possible on the NUC 8i7 mobo or are there plans to allow for this on any future NUC revisions?

I am being told that no existing or previous NUC products included support for this feature. The chipset's Chassis Intrusion pin is not brought out to a header. It is simply tied high and thus no intrusions are ever signaled.

 

The features in future products is not something that Intel Customer Support engineers (or anyone with an NDA) can discuss here. We, as customers, can speculate between us regarding what features will (or should be) included, but that's about it. If you truly desire the feature, you should make a formal request that it be considered for inclusion in the future. To do so, open a support ticket with Intel Customer Support and make your case. This ensures that the request gets tracked and is delivered to the folks making subsequent feature decisions.

Hello cscot11, Besides the useful information n.scott.pearson provided, we would like to confirm that this feature is not included in the existing/active Intel® NUCs. However, if you would like to customize a large amount of units, we would recommend you to contact one of the Intel® Authorized Distributors for design request. Please check the link below with the list of Intel® Authorized Distributors and Approved Suppliers: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/partner/where-to-buy/overview.html Also, it is important to recall that an NDA may be required by the Intel® Authorized Distributor to submit the request. I hope you find this information helpful. Best Regards, Abigail G Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation.

Abigail, this is not something that can be handled by distributors. It requires a change in the NUC board's design; the pin on the PCH must be routed to a 2-pin header that the Chassis Intrusion switch would then be connected to.

Hello everybody, I have checked this inquiry with the department in charge and they provided the following conclusion. Intel doesn't have this implementation with any Intel® NUCs currently or plans, but we have passed on cscot11's recommendation to the product team.
