Jul 14, 2017 — by Eric Brown 1,642 views

Habey’s Linux-friendly “BIS-6862” embedded PC offers 7th Gen Core U-series CPUs, a SATA 3.0 bay, -20 to 60°C support, dual GbE ports, and M.2 and SIM slots.

The fanless BIS-6862 embedded PC is a follow-on to Habey’s similar, Intel 5th Gen Core “Broadwell” based BIS-6861 computer, upgrading the SoC to the 7th Gen Core U-series processors from Intel’s latest “Kaby Lake” product line. Other improvements include the addition of M.2 and DisplayPort interfaces, and support for up to 32GB DDR4 instead of the previous limit of 8GB DDR3L.

The system can run Linux or Windows on dual-core, 15W TDP Intel Core i3-7100U, i5-7200, and i7-7500U CPUs at up to 2.4GHz, 3.1GHz, and 3.5GHz, respectively. Applications are said to include digital signage, kiosks, network security, and IoT gateways.

    I guess… if you have to ask, you probably couldn’t afford it. This is why I like newcomers like Litebook. For years, Linux either saw underpowered or over-priced systems. Until this company posts their prices somewhere, they don’t exist for me.
