AAEON UP Xtreme SBC was launched last June with a choice of 15W Whiskey Lake processors, namely Intel Celeron 4305UE dual-core processor, Intel Core i3-8145UE dual-core 4-thread processor, Intel Core i5-8365UE / Core i7-8665UE quad-core 8-thread processors.
The company has now launched a complete embedded computer built around UP Xtreme SBC named UP Xtreme Edge Computing System, or simply UPX-Edge for short, that’s a slight variation of the fanless chassis offered for the SBC during the Kickstarter campaign.

The embedded computer works with Windows 10, Linux Ubuntu 18.04 with Kernel 5.0, as well as Linux Yocto 2.7 with Kernel 4.19.
There are currently 7 configurations of UPX-Edge with variations of processor, memory (4GB, 8GB, or 16GB), and optional AI CoreX 2280 neural-network accelerator. The computer ships with a VESA kit, DIN-RAIL kit, SATA cable, and screw packs. Note a 19V/3.42A (65W) power adapter is sold separately, and a wireless LAN kit with an M.2 2230 card providing 802.11ac/a/b/g/n WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity is sold separately.
UPX-Edge embedded computer is available now, but not sold publicly online like some other products from the company. Instead, you could visit the product page and ask for a quote if interested. For reference, the Celeron board with 4GB RAM was sold for €249 during the Kickstarter campaign.
