When you've gotten the mindshare of Raspberry Pi within the single-board laptop (SBC) enviornment, you've gotten a giant goal painted in your again. According to CNX Software, one other Raspberry Pi different, the KIWI310, is on the way in which from Axiomtek and it brings some fascinating options to the desk.
The board itself measures 85 x 56 mm and forgoes the Arm-powered SoCs discovered within the huge household of Raspberry Pi merchandise. As a substitute, it’s powered by a dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 processor. For these unfamiliar, the Celeron N3350 is predicated on Intel’s low-power 14nm Apollo Lake structure and has a TDP of 6 watts. The processor has a base frequency of 1.10 GHz and might burst as much as 2.4 GHz.
You may configure the KIWI310 with as much as 8GB LPDDR4 reminiscence and as much as 64MB onboard eMMC storage. Concerning connectivity, Axiomtek outfitted the SBC with two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, USB-C (with Energy Supply), a micro HDMI 2.0 port (4K60 output) and Gigabit Ethernet (Realtek RTL8111). Different connectors embrace a 40-pin GPIO header and a regular M.2 Key E 2230 supporting PCIe and USB 2.0 interfaces.
The place issues get fascinating is with a few non-compulsory options. For starters, patrons can go for a 220 mAh lithium-ion battery and the SBC helps 5G connectivity. Within the accompanying video, we spied that Axiomtek is utilizing a Waveshare 5G HAT. The video additionally confirms that the KIWI310 ships with a heatsink within the field.
The KIWI310 helps Android, Linux and Home windows working programs. Nonetheless, understand that the SBC doesn’t have onboard TPM so it's not formally supported by Home windows 11. Nonetheless, there are methods to bypass Windows 11's TPM, RAM and CPU requirements.
Sadly, pricing and availability haven’t been revealed at the moment for the Axiomtek KIWI310, however we’ll replace this piece as soon as that data is supplied.
