As expected, LattePanda is launching a Kickstarter campaign for its new single-board computers.

The little boards look like a cross between a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino (which makes sense, since it’s an Arduino-compatible device with Leonardo coprocessor and 80 GPIO connectors). But the LattePanda Alpha are Windows and Linux compatible PCs with Intel processors and significantly more RAM than you get with most tiny computers in this category.

The LattePanda Delta features an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of LPDR4-2400 RAM, and 32GB of eMMC 5.0 storage, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a USB 3.0 Type-C port, microSD card slot, Ethernet, and audio jacks.

LattePanda is offering up this model for a pledge of $129 or more, and says the board should begin shipping to backers in May, 2018.

If you need more power, there’s the LattePanda Alpha, a $289 model with an Intel Core M3-7Y30 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC 5.0. The other specs are pretty much the same as those for the smaller model, but this model should offer close to twice the performance of the version with an Apollo Lake processor.

LattePanda says the Alpha should ship in June, 2018.

The new boards come about two years after LattePanda introduced its first device, a single board computer with an Intel Atom X5-Z8300 Cherry Trail processor and Windows 10 support.

    1. As i know, the answer is yes, the m.2 in LP Alpha support PCIe 4x, it should be enough for gpu

  1. N4100 Gemini Lake UHD 600 (200-700MHz) 😮 and I was sure they will use same old GPU from Apollo Lake… NUC 2018 must buy.

    N5000 and J5005 could be worth of test on NUC, UHD 605?

  2. I hope soon these companies realize the opportunity by including a second ethernet port. … Router anyone? dd-wrt, tomatousb, openwrt, ipfire, pfsense….etc.

    1. They have type-c and USB 3.0 ports. You can extend second ethernet port easily.

  3. I’m going to be /that guy/, but that first image as a marketing image is so bad it hurts. “World’s 1st hackable computer” makes me want to punch puppies. Other than that, cool idea, hope it works for everyone looking to use it for projects.

  4. When I looked into getting an Udoo board, many users said that the i2c, spi and gpio responded much slower than arm boards. RPi3 can do 10+ io operations in 1ms the Udoo board could only do a single one.

    1. Thanks. I wrote this up after looking at an earlier version of their comparison chart and I wasn’t actually certain that spec was final. To be honest, I’m still not sure, since Intel hasn’t officially announced that chip yet, so I think I’ll update the article to just say “Celeron” for now.
