Tiny Apollo Lake based mini-PCs run Ubuntu

Mar 21, 2018 — by Eric Brown 2,083 views

Logic Supply unveiled two 116 x 83 x 34mm mini-PCs built around a Celeron N3350: a CL200 with 3x USB ports and a CL210 that doubles memory to 2GB LPDDR4 and 32GB eMMC, and adds a second mini-DP and GbE port.

Logic Supply announced its smallest mini-PCs to date with CL200 and CL210 models that measure just 116 x 83 x 34mm. The CL200 ships with Ubuntu 16.04 while the more advanced CL210 also offers Windows 10 IoT. Both of these “IoT Edge Device” mini-PCs tap Intel’s dual-core, 1.1GHz Celeron N3350 with 6W TDP from the Apollo Lake generation, and support digital media, data acquisition, automation, and network gateway applications.

The fanless systems are not the smallest Linux-ready mini-PCs around, but they come close. ADL’s Bay Trail Atom based ADLEPC-1500 measures only 86 x 81 x 33mm, and Compulab’s Intel Apollo Lake based Fitlet2 squeezes into a 112 x 84 x 34mm package. Logic Supply’s latest devices are smaller than its two-year old, Intel Braswell based, NUC form factor CL100, which measures 117 x 112 x 36.7mm.

The CL200 and CL210 both provide a microSD slot, 2x USB 3.0 ports, a power button, and a 12v DC barrel jack. Both offer a USB 2.0 port and an RS-232 box header on the bottom of the computer.

Both models are equipped with “ultra-durable,” DIN-rail mountable cast aluminum enclosures that are sealed against dust. Wireless options include WiFi/Bluetooth modules and Logic Supply’s Extrovert 4G LTE module.

The CL200 gives you 1GB LPDDR4, 8GB eMMC, and single GbE and mini-DisplayPorts. The CL210 adds to this by doubling the memory count to 2GB RAM and 32GB eMMC, and offering 2xGbE and 2x mini-DisplayPorts. The CL210 also adds a 3.4mm audio jack with mic-in and line-out.


Both models can drive a 4K display from the mini-DisplayPort. If you have simultaneous displays running on the CL200, each is limited to HD resolution.
