Many ARM based “insert-fruit-name-here” Pi boards are available on the market, and they all look like the Raspberry Pi board to some extends, but thanks to AAEON and Emutex we got the “UP board” powered by Intel Atom x5-Z8300 and in Raspberry Pi form factor including the ubiquitous 40-pin Raspberry Pi headers, DSI and CSI connectors, and mostly the same port placements, with some extra goodies like a USB 3.0 port and Gigabit Ethernet.
UP is a platform designed for makers who intend to quickly Upscale their prototypes ideas into mass produced solutions.
Building on some of the best capabilities of existing maker boards in the market today, UP bridges the gap between the world of prototypes and the world of high-grade mass-produced embedded systems solutions.
Designed to embrace as many software developer communities as possible, UP runs Linux, Windows 10 and Android. UP users will be supported by an online community through www.up-board.org where tutorials and pro-active support forums will be available. The community will also provide a professional service where volume quantities of UP boards, including customized derivatives, can be requested and produced.
Up board is now on Kickstarter, where you can pledge 89 Euros including VAT. Support us!
