Intel Alder Lake-N SBC

AAEON provides support for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, Windows IoT Core, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, and Yocto 4.0. The SBC can also run the Intel OpenVINO Toolkit which leverages the Intel UHD Graphics capabilities for AI inference and 3D graphics. You’ll find resources to get started in the wiki.

So far, we had only seen the new Alder Lake-N processors in consumers devices like mini PCs and laptops, but the UP Square Pro 7000 SBC brings the new SoCs to the embedded space including one model with the Atom x7425E Embedded SKU that should support a wider temperature range (but not shown in the specs above), as well as Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), Time-Coordinated Computing (TCC), and in-band ECC (to be confirmed).

The datasheet, user manual, BIOS, and (Windows) drivers can be found on the product page, and you can find some additional information and ask questions in the UP community forum. The UP Squared Pro 7000 price starts at $249 for the model with an Intel Processor N50, 4GB RAM, and 32GB eMMC flash, and goes up to $499 with an Intel Core-i3 N305, 16GB RAM, and 64GB eMMC flash.

Atomic PI 2 looking thing.

1 year ago

While their specs are generally appealing, I’m wondering why they continue to make so thick boards. The tallest connectors are on the side where there’s nothing. Just using recessed connectors for HDMI and RJ45 could reduce the total height by 15mm by making them reuse a part of the heat sink’s thickness. I can imagine that there are places where this could be a problem.

Exactly. For this thickness, it would be very hard to fit it into a 1U rack space.

That’s indeed a good point.

You could put a dgpu, drive, or other pcie card in the slot there. They could even use it for gpio cabling, sensors or hardware extension boards. Does look like an atomic pi, however, I want to know what the sales price is going to be. Considering that the pcie slots are probably going to be 3.0 x4 slots, it means a GTX 1660 TI, or smaller for gaming, limited by the i3 processor, not gpu; or an rtx 3060 with cpu 3 or 4 (atom) in case of gpu deep learning/folding/boinc, is about the maximum you’ll be able to… Read more »

Perhaps they are aimed at replacing older bigger boards in industrial uses. A plug and replace plus power supply.

Well, I wouldn’t spec it for my machines — we have 20 year old machines still working away, so I’d want a standard form factor. For one potential project, I’m thinking of using a mini-ITX motherboard, without a case.
