UP Xtreme i11 Edge Compute Enabling Kit

Unleashing the new UP Xtreme i11 Edge Compute Enabling Kit, powered by the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with Iris® Xe graphics. It delivers greater performance and better efficiency for both general purpose applications and Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the edge. Leveraging the next generation network for IoT devices, this 5G enabled platform (with optional modem) can efficiently connect and collaborate between edge and the cloud.

With power-efficient compute and graphics, the UP Xtreme i11 Edge Compute Enabling Kit is optimized for speed, reliability, and efficiency. The integration of new Iris® Xe graphics boasts 96EUs, the most powerful integrated graphics available. It offers a strong set of features, in particular:  40Pin GPIO header, Dual Ethernet 1Gbps i219 plus 2.5 Gbps i225, multiple video output via HDMI 2.0b, DP 1.4, eDP, and Type-C USB.

NOTE: Please note that ADC is currently not working due to kernel regression (future kernel releases will fix the issue).
NOTE: Please note that the latest NVM for i225 IT Ethernet controller is not working in Ubuntu Linux. Please refer here for more info.
For more information, please refer to UP Xtreme i11 wiki page.
