About this project
It includes everything a regular PC has and can do anything that a regular PC does, all at a low price of 69 USD.
LattePanda runs perfectly on the go. Creating documents with Microsoft Office, playing HD videos and running Windows apps on LattePanda is exactly the same experience as using a regular PC.
LattePanda comes pre-installed with a full edition of Windows 10, including powerful tools such as Visual Studio, NodeJS, Java, Processing, and more!
As LattePanda runs Windows, it is compatible with most devices.
Not only use it as low cost regular windows computer. LattePanda is also designed with an Arduino compatible processor, which means it even can help you to control and sense the physical world.
Whether you are a Windows developer, an IoT developer, a hardware DIYer, an interactive designer, a robotics whizz, or a maker, LattePanda can aid your creative process.
Just connect a micro USB and HDMI cable and start your new Windows 10 computer!
LattePanda is the most powerful computer for its size, making it ideal for robotics projects. Upgrade projects by connecting several high resolution cameras or Kinect to give your robot its own eyes.
With LattePanda running a development platform of your choice, it's a piece of cake to build a cloud-connected IoT project.
The possibilities are endless when you install LattePanda in your project or device.
Since it's a powerful and portable Windows 10 computer, you can embed it anywhere to collect and analyze data in real time. With onboard WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and ethernet connectivity, data transmission is not a problem.
Hardware sensors and module extensions are designed to be plug and play for people without a background in electronics. Get the IoT development kit and open your mind to control the physical world.
THANKS TO OUR SUPPORTERS
First off, thank you! We hope you're excited about our idea and we hope you'll back our project. Special thanks to some Shanghai local teams that have been an enormous help: DFRobot, Slamtec and WonderlabsStudio.
Risks and challenges
Hardware production is not a problem for us - as you can see we already have working samples, and our team has 3 years of experience producing hardware projects. We are also based in China and are therefore very close to the supply chain. However, if any issues do occur, we promise to keep our backers updated and informed.
Our main goal is to build a hardware community for Windows developers. This is also our main challenge. We want to gain feedback and improve our product.
We will provide step by step tutorials and examples for hardware tinkering, all available at the Lattepanda.com website.However, we need your help to share resources and ideas to the community.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
100 Mbps. A USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet will be an alternative solution to match a higher speed requirement.
LattePanda runs Windows 10 Home Edition.
NOT Windows 10 IoT Core.
There is NO license fee required, it is completely pre activated.
It is not currecntly integrated, however we are working on a capacitive touch panel solution. We haven't updated this info yet as we are focused on production at this time.
It is likely we will release this feature in future.
The HD Graphics (Cherry Trail) is based on the Intel Gen8 architecture, which supports DirectX 11.2 and is also found in the Broadwell series (e.g. HD Graphics 5300).
The GPU also supports 4K/H.265 video acceleration.
Very good question! To be honest, when discussing the compatibility of Arduino, we had a big debate in the team from the beginning! Some members wanted to optimize the size, and others wanted to make it compatible with shields.
After research about all the functions of shields, we found that the most commonly used shields are Ethernet/WIFI/Bluetooth/LCD display ones. Since 80% of the features of all shields are already integrated in LattePanda, we choose to optimize the size for this particular version. We will however listen to any suggestions from our community.
The processor supports simultaneous display outputs so using LCD and HDMI at the same time shouldn’t be an issue.
Based on Intel website, the x5-Z8300 can handle only 2GB on ram, so how can LattePanda put 4GB with Z8300 processor?
x5-Z8300 does support unofficially 4GB of RAM. There is a recent article about it on liliputing.com.
