UP Squared Series

This is the maker board we have all been waiting for. UP Squared is the world’s fastest x86 pro maker board based on the latest Intel platform. The UP Squared Series is powered by Intel® Atom™ x5-E3940 and clocks up to 1.8GHz with only 4W SDP and 9.5W TDP.

Inheriting the 40-pin GP-bus from the first generation of UP, although this time controlled by Altera FPGA MAX 10, UP² (UP Squared) comes with a range of additional features. Makers will enjoy up to 8GB of RAM , up to 128 GB onboard eMMC 5.0, and more I/O ports including 3x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, 2x Gigabit LAN, 1x HDMI, 1x DP, eDP, mini PCI-e/mini card SATA, M.2 2230, SATA 3.0, 2 CSI and additional 60 pin board-to-board expansion (EXHAT) with GPIO.

Powerful

The UP Squared Series is powered by Intel Quad Core Atom X5-E3940, which combines high performance and low power consumption. It’s a 64-bit quad-core SoC that can clock up to 1.84 GHz with only 4W SDP and 9.5W TDP

The UP Squared Series also comes with options for Intel® Pentium™ N4200 (up to 2.5Ghz) and Intel Celeron™ N3350 (up to 2.4GHz) with only 6W of TDP.

High End Graphics

The internal GPU is the new Intel® Gen. 9 HD with 12/18 Execution Units, supporting 4K Codec Decode and Encode for HEVC⁴, H.264 and VP8. 

Thanks to the Vector Units Image Processing Unit and Precision Timing Management to synchronize CPU with I/O, improved determinism (cache QoS, Intel Virtualization Technology), all the graphic processing is effortless to UP Squared.
