OnLogic Elkhart Lake fanless mini PC’s are made for IIoT applications

Onlogic Helix 300 Karbon-400 Elhart Lake Mini PCIntel Atom x6000E Series, Celeron and Pentium Elkhart Lake IoT Edge processors were introduced in September 2020, and we covered several Elkhart Lake modules and SBC’s.

We’ve seen fewer full systems such as the Atom x6425RE based Vecow SPC-6000 Elkhart Lake mini PC for embedded & IoT applications. But OnLogic is more offering four more choices with Helix 300 and Karbon K400 Series of rugged fanless mini PCs, all equipped with Atom, Celeron, or Pentium Elkhart Lake processors, and designed for industrial IoT (IIoT) or Industry 4.0 applications

Helix 300 Series Specifications

Elkhart Lake fanless mini PCThe Helix 300 family is comprised of two models with Helix 310 and Helix 330 share most of the same specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Celeron N6211 dual-core processor or Pentium J6425 quad-core processor
  • System Memory – Up to 32 GB DDR4 RAM
  • Storage – M.2 Storage
  • Video Output – 3x DisplayPort for triple independent display setups

Applications and Cortex-M7-based Intel PSE

OnLogic’s latest Helix and Karbon Elkhart Lake fanless mini PC target all sorts of IIoT applications from machine learning and artificial intelligence, to advanced SCADA or networking

Like other Elkhart Lake solutions, the mini PCs integrate The Intel® Programmable Services Engine (Intel PSE) offload engine for IoT workloads powered by an ARM Cortex-M7 microcontroller that can enable real-time IO control using GPIO, I2C and UART interfaces, and supports functions like remote, out-of-band device management, network proxy, embedded controller, and sensor hub.

OnLogic mini PCs can be configured to meet the specific requirements, and run a range of Windows or Linux operating systems. The company also offers custom branding, software imaging, custom fulfilment services, and lifecycle management support.


OnLogic Helix 300 Series and Karbon 400 Series are expected to be available for purchase in Q2, but pricing has not been made public at this time. Additional information can be found on the product page.
