Solid-State Computer (SSC)

Definition - What does Solid-State Computer (SSC) mean?

A solid-state computer (SSC) is a computer system that is built using solid-state devices, equipment and components within its physical architecture.

Solid-state computers differ from the typical computers in their use of solid-state technology and their lack any moving parts.

Solid state computers are also known as solid-state PCs (SSPC).

Techopedia explains Solid-State Computer (SSC)

Solid-state computers consist of solid-state components such as semiconductors, integrated circuits, solid-state storage drives and nonvolatile flash memory. Because solid-state computers lack mechanical parts, they are less noisy than conventional computers, and provide faster data retrieval and processing capabilities.

However, because solid-state computers have no exhaust fan, these computers may not have a graphic card in their architecture, which relies on an embedded fan for cooling.
