The PICO-WHU4 measures 100 x 72 millimeters, corresponds to the Pico-ITX format and is offered with four different processors. The single-board computer is available with the Intel Celeron 4305UE, the Core i3-8145UE, the Core i5-8365UE, and the Core i7-8665UE. The latter is equipped with four cores, and the clock rate is up to 4.45 GHz.

The clock frequency of the RAM is 2,400 MHz, whereby only one module can be installed. Active cooling of the processors is only optional but should be very advisable in heavy workloads. HDMI 1.4 is integrated, which means that image output to two 4K screens is also possible. A single mini-PCIe slot allows the installation of an SSD, a hard drive can be connected via a SATA port. Also, two fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports are built-in, and connection to a network is possible via Gigabit Ethernet.

According to the manufacturer SMBus, I2C, LPD, and eSPI are supported. ZDNet says that the Core i5 variant will be available for US$783. Thus, the PICO-WHU4 is significantly more expensive than the Raspberry Pi 4B, but it also offers much more performance.

As a proud digital native, I like numbers and love technology. Although I did not finish my studies in chemistry successfully, I developed an interest in test methods and scientific contexts, which I focus on teaching in a user-friendly way. Running and trekking serve me as compensation.
