UP Core Series

The x86 industrial maker board even smaller than a Post-it!

The extremely compact form factor, expandability through the 100-pin expansion connector and reliability of the Intel Atom x86 processor platform make UP core the perfect platform for your solution.
Thousands of makers and developers have succesfully brought their ideas to live.

Key Strengths


Powered by Intel® Atom™ x5-Z8350 QuadCore 1.44/1.92Ghz 64 bit CPU, UP Core comes with with 2/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB eMMC 5.0, 2 x USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HDMI, DSI/eDP, 2 x MIPI-CSI supporting 2M Pixel camera and 8M Pixel camera, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 with Ampak AP6214 on board.

Smallest Quad-core x86 SBC

It is smaller than a post-it, and it can be expanded or stacked to extend many more functionalities. At a limited size of 56.5x 66mm, be prepared to experience the unlimited possibilities of UP Core.


On the underside of UP Core, there is a 100 pin I/O high-speed expansion connector with UART, SPI, 2x USB HSIC, PCI-Express, GPIO, Intel Sensors Hub, SDIO and 5V Power. This permits users to expand the features, easily developing custom expansion boards.

Stackable expansion boards

High-speed carrier board – it offers signals such as PCI-express, GbLAN and USB3.0. Low-speed carrier board – it offers signals such as RS-232/422/484, I2C, I2S, and GPIO. You may choose either one of the two boards or stack both of them beneath UP Core. The high-speed signal expansion board shall always be the first layer beneath UP Core if you intend to use up to 3 expansion boards. All our users can take advantage of those existing designs to make your own expansion boards.

What can you achieve with this kit?

Here we demo UP Core with RealSense camera and SLAM library for robotics – With embedded vision, you can choose Basler camera with pylon SDK and together with this, there are many more partners in home automation, industrial automation and IoT.

UP Core enables you to utilize the entire eco-system which we have built around the UP Board and UP Squared. Whether you are working in the fields of industrial automation, vending, digital signage, IoT, home automation or robotics; there are options for you within our ecosystem. Many talented people have been working hard to lay down the foundation for your current and future projects.
