Something like a couple of years ago the Chinese company DFRobot launched a campaign through the well-known crowdfunding page Kickstarter to finance a very interesting idea on a development board that would allow all the flexibility of Arduino with the power of a low-consumption Intel processor. After this waiting time, it is time to know a new version of this plate, the one baptized as LattePanda Delta.
The idea behind the design and manufacture of the LattePanda Delta is to offer all developers a development board capable of improving everything present thanks to being equipped with much more powerful hardware and even greater versatility to that offered by the preceding generation.
LattePanda Delta, a fully Arduino compatible controller
Going into a little more detail, tell you that as has been officially published, when LattePanda Delta hits the market it will do so with several versions of the plate. A model equipped with a processor Intel N3350 and 2 GB of RAM that will be the access option and a higher model with a chip Intel Core M3 7Y30 with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC ROM, a version that, as you are sure, uses the same chip as the affordable versions of Microsoft's Surface Pro or Apple's MacBook.
To make this board compatible with Arduino, a Atmega32u4 microcontroller with which to access hundreds of development elements and sensors of all kinds. To this we have to add different connectivity options such as WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, Ethernet port, three USB 3.0, a USB-C, an HDMI output and even an 80-pin GPIO connector ideal for connecting all kinds of sensors and external elements. .
