HP t630: Hardware 


 


 

 



HP t630 Thin Client

The HP t630 was launched in August 2016. As yet I don't have one. The information presented here comes from HP's publicity material and from Mike who does have one.

The embedded operating system is one of:

  • HP ThinPro
  • HP Smart Zero Core
  • Windows Embedded Standard 7E
  • Windows 10 IoT Enterprise

Power Supply

The t630 is supplied with a 65W 19.5V 3.33A DC supply. The connector is male coaxial connector. According to my micrometer the external diameter of the barrel is 7.4mm, the internal diameter 5mm. I don't what the size is of the recessed centre pin. This is also used by various HP laptops and so a suitable PSU should be easy to find on eBay.

If you don't have an HP PSU/charger and are thinking of using a non-HP PSU see this page.

CPU

The CPU fitted to the t630 is from AMD's Embedded G-Series System-on-Chip (SOC). The one fitted to the t630 is a quad core AMD GX-420GI with Radeon(tm) R7E HD Graphics. As I've found before with some AMD SOCs used in thin clients, neither Google nor the search engine on AMD's own site can find any mention of the GX-420GI in any AMD documentation.

Expansion

HP t630 circuit board

Flash: The board is designed to take two M.2 SSDs. The primary socket is designed to take M.2 flash modules up to 2280. The secondary socket will accommodate modules up to 2242.

RAM: There are two on-board sockets to take DDR4 SODIMMs. The datasheet gives the data transfer rate as 1,866 MT/s. The maximum memory supported is 32GB. Mike fitted two 16GB Crucial parts - CT16G4SFD8266.

USB: There are a plethora of USB connections in the t630. There are four sockets on the front panel. Two of these are USB2.0 and two are to the USB 3.0 standard. The rear panel carries two USB 2.0 sockets. Finally there is a single internal USB 3.0 socket.

Max dimensions of what might fit? (Flash drive maximum dimensions: 65mm (L) x 25mm (W) x 10mm (H))

WiFi: The t630 has a M.2 2230 slot for a wireless network card. This may be fitted with one of: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo adapter or a Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo adapter
