About

Two years ago, we came to you with the world’s 1st maker board with full Windows 10 out-of-the-box; we ushered in mainstream computing on development boards with 4060 backers. Since then, we have been listening, learning and implementing everything the community has told us. 

Now, we are back with another revolution to define a new era of computing not just for enthusiasts, but also for everyone who uses a computer! 

A Hackable Computer balances the power of desktop devices with the beauty of sleek design, the open community, scalability of components, and rich playability of development boards. 

The Alpha Edition uses the same Intel 7th generation Core m3 processor as the latest MacBook. The Core m3 processor is the perfect choice for superior performance and low power consumption. Thanks to the excellent work of Intel and our engineering team, we have shrunken this computing monster from a laptop to the size of a phone.

 

We are shipping Windows 10 Pro this time but we have also added Linux Compatibility because we saw the different needs of users from our 1st Gen products.

Windows 10 Pro is Microsoft's enhanced operating system based on Windows 10 Home, which retains all the features of the home version, compatible with all Windows software, while providing greater security for industrial applications, remote control and development applications like remote desktop and management features. It makes the LattePanda Alpha / Delta product lineup in tune with the requirements of a productivity tool!

The Linux OS also has a rich development toolchain environment and resources for cutting-edge development runtimes, such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Automation etc. It inherits the UNIX system architecture, OPEN! It is a developer's most respected open development platform. We believe in the next few years, it will further promote a new industry in the rich applications.

Appreciating that we need a better way to interact between different platforms, we have introduced the Streaming Cable to complement the ultimate hackable computer; No more partitions, no more hassle. 

The Streaming Cable enables your Windows-enabled LattePanda device to act like a USB on a Mac or Linux system. Just plug & play into your Apple/Linux device! The PiP (Picture in Picture) form also eliminates the switching/use of dual mouse and HDMI to connect different systems for seamless interaction of two different systems. 

Connecting the LattePanda this way with your setup will also get rid of the need to partition your disk for Windows so you can research and develop Windows/IoT Smart devices easily! With the LattePanda Alpha and Delta, boost your productivity to new heights!

 

 

 

As a hackable device, dynamic form elevates your creation to a whole new level. 

This new case with an integrated fan vent is a sleek solution to cover your silicon. With its angular design and smooth metallic finish, your hackable computer will stand out whether on the back of your robot or on the top of your desk, all while protecting and cooling your LattePanda from the elements.

 

 

 

The LattePanda lineup covers a wide range of requirements from base-level performance all the way to the most sophisticated of needs. We strive to help our users find a suitable product in the LattePanda brand to fit their applications and target scenarios.  

On this campaign, we are kick starting the LattePanda Alpha and the LattePanda Delta!  

1. Alpha Edition - Generally refers to the leader in a wolf pack, α / Alpha. It will also be the leader in the LattePanda series, the most powerful in performance. Known as the leader of the Pandas, or "AlphaPanda" for short.

2. Delta Edition - Mathematical Character△; a triangle. In terms of product design, performance, price and power consumption, it signals a compromise between the three.

 

Note: we realize all backers do not have the same needs and might want more or less of a certain variant of the LattePanda Kits. Because of this, we will have, later in the campaign, an Add-on option for backers who wish to obtain larger quantities of a specific variant.

 

 

 

Giving everyone a platform to express their feelings, digitally.

Some projects set out to just create a standalone product and fail to take into account the bigger picture.  

First, with its power, this device is sufficient to power all creators’ needs. Its slim profile is in tune with today’s times to maximize mobility, versatility and for you to utilize in the most compact of contraptions you may conceive. Its matt black finish is specifically there to give a soul to your project so that it looks like a finish product. Which brings us our purpose. Be it machine learning, high-speed data gathering, or super-fast graphics rendering all these require something that is versatile, dynamic and albeit come in the form factor where you do not have to drag around your computing powerhouse. We hope to give everyone a new platform for development, no matter what his or her background is. Essentially, we are engineers who want to use our experience to help people express their creativity. Our goal is to deliver products not just for the masses, but also for people just like us, who love to create! We make our products user-friendly and full rich features that even high-end users can appreciate for industry-related work, too. Down the line, we hope to diversify our product line-up even more with cool stuff that will not only be fun to use but also drive innovation!

 

Risks and challenges

As with all projects, there are always risks and undertakings involved.
Similar to the 1st Generation of LattePanda products, we have working prototypes that are undergoing intensive and extensive testing and trial benchmarks that will push the devices to their limits to expose any and all design flaws. These kinks will be ironed out before our production run.
