Compulab outs Fitlet2 mini PC with Apollo Lake CPUs starting at US$153
Israel-based company Compulab specializes in computer-on-board modules, industrial PCs, and, as of late, IoT devices like mini PCs. The latest addition to its mini PC line is the Fitlet2 model that comes with a diminutive enclosure even for devices of such form-factor. It measures only 4.4 x 3.3 inches, making it one of the smallest full-featured PC on the market. The Apollo Lake CPUs powering the mini PC might not be too powerful, but then again, these devices are marketed as IoT gateways, which need to be small, affordable and reliable.
The Fitlet2 features a fanless enclosure that has a 0.98-inch profile. The more powerful variants come with radiator fins on top and a 1.3-inch profile. Compulab included the FACET Card proprietary technology, specifically developed so the mini PC can pack as many features as possible. In this sense, the fitlet2 can integrate an FC-LAN card with two Gigabit NICs (for a total of four), the FC-PCIe and FC-CEM cards that add a 4G cellular modem and WiFi+Bluetooth capabilities, and an FC-USB card that extends the USB port count up to eight.
The main specs also include:
• Apollo Lake E3950 / E3930 / J3455 ULV CPUs
• up to 16 GB DDR3L-1866 RAM
• modular storage options including M.2 SATA SSDs, eMMC cards and 2.5-inch HDDs
• mini DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI port for dual 4K output
• 2x USB 3.0 and up to 6x USB 2.0 ports
• Audio jack + S/PDIF
The new mini PC will be available shortly from Compulab or Amazon, with variants starting at US$153.
