VESA compatible mini PC is powered by Vortex86DX3 x86 processor

ICOP EB-3362-I fanless mini PC powered by DM&P Vortex86DX3 x86 processor coupled with 2GB DDR3 of memory and designed to be mounted on the back of a VESA compatible display or monitor, a wall, or even a DIN rail through an adapter.

The mini PC will be mostly useful for legacy x86 applications with features like VGA video output, multiple DB9 COM ports, as well as SATA storage.  The wide 8V to 24V input voltage and -20 to 70C  temperature range will also make it suitable for some industrial applications.

ICOP EB-3362-I specfications:

  • SoC – DM&P Vortex86DX3 dual-core x86 processor @ 1GHz
  • System Memory – 2GB DDR3
  • Storage – SATA interface, SD card socket
  • Display Output – VGA up to 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz
  • Networking
    • 10/100M Ethernet RJ45 port
    • Optional additional Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port
    • Optional WiFi via USB 2.0 port, and external antenna
  • USB – 3x USB 2.0 ports, 1x internal USB 2.0 header (on some variants)
  • Serial – Up to 3x RS232 DB9 ports, optional RS485 DB9 ports
  • Expansion
    • Up to 2x 8-bit GPIO DB9 ports
    • Optional Mini PCIe socket + SIM card slot
  • Misc – Power switch, auto power on and PXE diskless boot support in BIOS
  • Power Supply – 8 to 24V DC input
  • Dimensions – 115 x 115 x 35mm
  • Weight – 510 grams
  • Temperature Range – -20°C to +70°C

Supported operating systems highlight the legacy focus of the device with Windows 7, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows Embedded Compact 7, Windows Embedded CE6.0, Windows XP Professional, Windows Embedded 2009, Linux, DOS, POS Ready (WePOS), QNX, VxWorks, and FreeBSD. Specific applications include data/webs server, industrial automation, process control, automotive controller, medical device, and machine control.

I was just informed about the ICOP EB-3362-I by email this morning, but the company issued a press release in December 2021, so I initially thought it was fairly recent, but the mini PC datasheet is dated 2018, so it’s a bit older than I initially expected. Nevertheless, DM&P Vortex86DX3 detection was only recently added to Linux 5.16 to prevent mitigations for Spectre/Meltdown since Vortex processors are not susceptible to those vulnerabilities, and it would unnecessarily reduce performance (which already should be really low).

More details about ICOP EB-3362-I Vortex86DX3 mini PC can be found on the product page. There’s no pricing that I could find on the ICOP website, but one reseller lists the EB-3362-L2C2851G1E-I model for $367, albeit we are told to check with the company for availability and current pricing.

    1. 367$ for x586-class box that can run embedded single-purpose OS for next few decades. Also no, I don’t think it’s a viable option for retro computing, maybe EX2 could be better, given its unique features
