This tiny computer has a universal interface which allows it to be plugged into any host device with an Intel Compute Card slot, including an Intel-designed dock. The modular nature of the Compute Card means that computing power can be found in unexpected places. Suddenly it is easy to integrate compute and connectivity into everything.
Imagine if your customers could simply insert an Intel Compute Card and create smart devices. With the Compute Card's standard interface, designers and manufacturers are free to do what they do best - create amazing products - rather than learning how to integrate compute capabilities. The Compute Card along with Intel design guides and reference designs make it easy to create great products with compute power.
Refresh or upgrade
The ability to swap out a card for upgrade makes the Intel Compute Card a natural choice for your commercial and consumer customers because it allows for refresh of the compute separate from the device. It also makes upselling easier because you can simply drop in a Compute Card with a more powerful processor.
The Intel Compute Card can enable advanced business models as well as mitigate risk and expense because OEMs, ODMs, and channel partners can add compute resources later in the manufacturing cycle. Equally important, retailers and channel members can now carry less inventory and manage their compute inventory loads closely.
