3.5-inch SBC comes in 6th and 7th Gen Intel flavors

Nov 7, 2017 — by Eric Brown — 2634 views

Commell’s 3.5-inch “LS-37K” SBC supports 6th or 7th Gen Core S-series and Xeon-E3-1200 v5 CPUs with up to 16GB DDR4, triple displays, 2x SATA, and mSATA.

Commell announced a 3.5-inch SBC with Intel’s 6th (“Skylake”) or 7th (“Kaby Lake”) Gen Core S-series and Xeon-E3-1200 v5 CPUs. The LS-37K’s layout and feature set are similar to that of its Skylake based LE-37I and LE-37G 3.5-inch boards. As usual, no OS support is listed, but Linux should run with no problem.

Unlike Aaeon’s GENE-KBU6 and Diamond’s Venus 3.5-inchers, which use 6th Gen U-Series chips, the LS-37K joins Axiomtek’s 3.5-inch CAPA50 in supporting faster, but less power efficient 6th and 7th Gen processors that use the LGA1151 socket. That also includes the server-class Xeon-E3-1200.

The 146 x 101mm LS-37K supports up to 16GB DDR4, and offers dual SATA III interfaces and mSATA, made available via the sole mini-PCIe slot. Triple displays are supported with a choice of five different display interfaces: 4K-ready coastline DisplayPort and HDMI ports plus DVI, VGA, and LVDS interfaces.
