New μFRED Delivers Greater Performance While Retaining Compact Form Factor


Small, portable, and powerful is a great way to describe the Digital Intelligence μFRED system. The new μFRED maintains its small chassis (17″ l x 9″w x 11.5″h) heritage while boosting processor power, clockspeed, drive capacities, and adding liquid cooling. Customers that buy a μFRED for the first time are pleasantly surprised at its performance. It is common for new μFRED customers to become repeat μFRED customers.


Built to handle the processing needs of modern computer and mobile forensics software, μFRED is a lower priced alternative to traditional forensic towers. Standard on new μFRED is a powerful Intel i9-14900K 24-core (8 performance / 16 efficiency) with up to 6 GHz clock and 36 MB SmartCache. 64 GB of PC5-38400 DDR5 RAM comes standard, expandable up to 96 GB.


With up to seven (7) storage devices, μFRED systems provide ample capacity for modern forensic software processing. Drives include two (2) internal M.2 NVMe slots, with one 500 GB drive reserved for the Windows 11 operating system. Twelve different USB connections provide external connectivity. Network data transfers are fast and efficient with an integrated 2.5 gigabit Ethernet connection. The integrated WiFi and Bluetooth have been upgraded as well.


Compact Package. Full Size Performance.


Scaled down in size but not processing power, μFRED’s offer the performance of a higher end system at an entry level system price. Don’t overpay for performance. If you need the quality and performance that come with FRED systems at a budget friendly price, the Digital Intelligence μFRED should be high on your list.


Portability When You Need It


Need to change your work locations from time to time? Grab the handle on top of the μFRED case and go. The handle folds flush and out of the way once moved. This convenient feature ensures mobility when necessary while minimizing handling risk.


It’s a FRED
(Just a Smaller One)


For acquisition, triage, and analysis work that doesn’t require multiple hot-swap, removeable drive trays, the μFRED fills the need. Space saving and efficient with power to spare, μFRED is the preferred compact forensic processing alternative.


Fast, Secure Forensic Acquisitions with UltraBay 4


All μFREDs include an UltraBay 4™ write blocker for imaging SATA, SAS, IDE, USB 3, FireWire, and PCIe suspect drives. An integrated, hot-swap USB 3.1 connected removable drive tray is available for the storage and process of case work and digital evidence. μFRED ships pre-installed with Tableau Imager (TIM) to maximize sustained forensic imaging rates through the UltraBay 4.


Hardware Optimized for Leading Forensic Software


Recommending less is sometimes more. Optimizing system processor cores, RAM, and storage is something we take very seriously. We don’t want our customers to spend more than is necessary for great performance. We test all FRED configurations using industry leading software. This methodology produces systems optimized for excellent performance when conducting forensic examinations.
