Compulab Utilite mini PC to arrive in August

utiliteMini PC maker Compulab is set to launch a new compact Cortex A9 model in August called the Compulab Utilite.

Looking a little more serious in its design than most of the TV box models we’ve seen, the Compulab Utilite will feature Freescale’s i.MX6 Cortex A9-based SoC CPU, either a single, dual or quad-core option (you’ll get to choose), along with up to 4GB of DDR3-1066 RAM, plus the option of an mSATA SSD up to 512GB.

Peripheral ports look like they’ll be plentiful with four USB2.0 ports with up to 1A of current per port, plus USB OTG as well as a microSD card slot at the front supporting up to SDXC cards (128GB).

Networking is excellent with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, along with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 ready to go.

It’s also fairly laid back about power, only requiring unregulated 10-16VDC input, so you can all but guarantee there’ll be some decent voltage regulation inside. Power consumption is said to be between three and eight watts, but that’ll be heavily dependent on what else you plug into the USB ports. It’s not clear whether you can load up all USB ports with one-amp loads (in which case, power consumption will be 20+ watts). It’ll either be limited by the board inside or the power supply itself.

Prices are expected to start at $99. Get more info at the Compulab website.
