Axiomtek KIWI310 may look like a Raspberry Pi SBC but it packs an Intel Celeron N3350 processor, an M.2 slot with support for Myriad X AI accelerator, and the company also offer a HAT with 5G cellular connectivity.
The single board computer also comes with up to 4GB LPDDR4 memory, up to 64GB eMMC flash, a Micro HDMI port, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, as well as the ubiquitous 40-pin GPIO header. Power options are also an improvement over your typical Raspberry Pi board with USB-C PD as well as LiPo battery support.
Axiomtek KIWI310 specifications:
- SoC – Intel Celeron N3350 dual-core Apollo Lake processor @ 1.1 GHz / 2.4 GHz (Turbo) with Intel HD Graphics 500; 6W TDP
- System Memory – Up to 4GB (specs) or 8GB (YouTube video) LPDDR4
- Storage – Up to 64GB eMMC flash, SPI flash for AMI BIOS
- Video & audio output – micro HDMI 2.0 up to 4Kp60
- Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port via Realtek RTL8111 with support for Wake-on-LAN, PXE Boot ROM
- USB – 2x USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports (aka USB 3.0), 2x USB 2.0 ports
- 1x M.2 Key E 2230 (USB 2.0, PCIe)
- 40-pin GPIO header with UART, I2C, SPI, GPIO, PWM
- Misc – Watchdog Timer, hardware monitoring
- Security – No TPM, so no Windows 11
- Power Supply
- USB Type-C PD (9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/3A)
- Optional PoE support
- Optional 3V/220mAh Lithium battery
- Dimensions – SBC: 85 x 56 mm; APC208 chassis: 90 x 60 x 37 mm
- Temperature Range – SBC: 0°C to +60°C; with chassis: 0°C to +40°C (go figure!)
- Relative Humidity – 10% to 95% relative humidity, non-condensing
- Certifications – CE
The Intel based Raspberry Pi lookalike board is designed for AIoT applications in robotics, industrial automation, retail, video surveillance, smart city, and more. The Axiomtek KIWI310 should be available, but the price is not available publicly, and you’d have to request additional details via the product page, which, by the way, is a complete mess with a Xeon system shown when scrolling down, and broken links to the user manual and datasheet.

It could be very interesting for all those who are afraid of non-standard distros, non-mainline kernels, and uncommon boot-loaders and who only feel at ease on x86. The original UP board was great for this but lacked a small enclosure and was using a really low-performance Atom (well, mine is still up 24×7 on my desk and serves me whenever I need an external client for a test).
The heatsink inside an enclosure is a curious concept due to its predictably horrible efficiency, but as long as that suffices to prevent the CPU from throttling, who really cares after all, what matters is that it does the job. And I htink the enclosure is designed to be mounted vertically, in which case there could be some convection air flow.
Can we stop with this dumb form factor already? It is simply not good.
This is an awfully designed board just to squeeze everything in.
Indeed! 10/10 comment
Rather pricey I think…
An it look like it is not available until mid-2022
Massively overpriced and using what is essentially an ancient SOC.
Smacks of selling something based upon whatever is left in the stock bins.
Yeap pretty cool. Intel X86 vs ARM fight !
