As previously announced hardware manufacturer and developer UP has launched a new crowding funding campaign this week to raise the required funds needed to take their new UP Xtreme single board PC into production. Measuring just 120mm x 122mm in size the UP Xtreme mini PC has been created to provide users with a comprehensive set of features and I/O, providing astonishing performance rates of up to 4.6GHz and turbo clock frequency in just 15W. Watch the promotional video below to learn more.
The UP Xtreme single board PC is now available to back via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges starting from €249 and worldwide delivery expected to take place during September 2019. The development team responsible for creating the new single board PC explain more about its features and design.
“With UP Xtreme we have consolidated the best I/O features from previous UP boards. The 40-pin GP-bus from UP board, mPCIe M.2 expansion from UP Squared and 100-pin expansion from UP Core Plus have all been utilized. Powered by Intel 8th Core processors (code name: Whiskey Lake U), UP Xtreme is aimed at industrial, IoT, automation, robotics industries and much more.
The addition of a 12-60V power input, a lockable power connector and TSN networking chip has enabled UP Xtreme to be expandable as well as industrial. UPscaling any application that needs more CPU power, memory capacity and rich I/O’s is all possible thanks to the extreme performance of UP Xtreme. Dubbed as the ferrari of the UP family, the power of UP Xtreme goes up to 4.6 Ghz, ensuring that you’ll never have to complain of having low CPU power. You’ll also never feel that it’s not smart enough as it is capable of expanding up to 6x Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU. It boasts optional connectivity via WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE and LoRA. The possibilities are stretched to the extreme. “
