LattePanda: The Intel-powered Raspberry Pi competitor is now available to purchase globally
The LattePanda Delta 432 is possibly one of the fastest single-board computers currently on the market except for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano. DFRobot equips the Delta 432 with an Intel Celeron N4100 processor, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32 GB of eMMC flash storage, although there are two M.2 slots on the back of the unit for adding additional storage. Both support the fast NVMe protocol, for reference. The Alpha 864s version of the LattePanda has been demonstrated running an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 using one of its M.2 slots, which could potentially be extended to the Delta 432 too.
The LattePanda not only runs on a Celeron N4100 but also an Arduino Leonardo, which acts as a co-processor. The board has two 50-pin headers for connecting various actuators and sensors, along with one HDMI port, three USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a USB Type-C port. The latter supports DisplayPort and USB PD for powering the board.
There is also 802.11 ac Wi-Fi onboard, while Bluetooth 5.0 and Gigabit Ethernet feature too. The LattePanda Delta 432 supports Windows and Linux among other OSes and is available for $188.00. DFRobot includes a 45 W power supply and a fan in the box, but the device does not come with a Windows licence. The company sells a version with pre-installed with Windows 10 Pro for an additional US$40, though.
