The LattePanda 3 Delta was announced last November, after a successful crowdfunding campaign, the single board computer can finally be ordered from Wednesday August 10th via DFRobot. Delivery to Europe is free and quite fast with a delivery time of two to three working days, but customers should expect the usual additional costs for import.
LattePanda 3 Delta has made a great improvement over the 1st and 2nd generations in the terms of performance, transfer speed, memory and storage but keeps almost the same connectors and layout as the previous generations to simplify projects’ making, migrating and upgrading.
The more powerful alternative to the Raspberry Pi costs $279. For this price, buyers get an Intel Celeron N5105, a frugal quad-core processor from 2021 that clocks up to 2.9 GHz. The chip is operated with a TDP of 10 watts. There is also 8 GB of LPDDR4-2933 RAM and 64 GB of eMMC flash storage. For expansion, the single-board computer offers a PCIe 3.0 x2 M.2 slot (M key) and a PCIe 3.0 x1 M.2 slot (B key).
There is also a USB 2.0 header, a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port (10 Gbit/s), two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 (5 Gbit/s), one USB-C, HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4 for 4K displays and eDP for a 1080p touchscreen. Thanks to support for TPM 2.0, the computer is fit for Windows 11, but users can also install Linux.
For the greatest possible flexibility in the implementation of projects, the LattePanda 3 Delta offers an Arduino Leonardo ATMEGA32U4 co-processor, twelve analogue inputs, 23 digital inputs / outputs, UART, I2C, SPI, a 4-pin RS232 header, a fan connector (4-pin, 1.25mm, PWM, 5V) and a 4-pin header for the power button.
This is a great little computer for all enthusiasts.
