  • Smart Fan HAT cools the Pi and passes the GPIO

    Sequent’s $20 “Smart Fan HAT” for the Raspberry Pi passes along the 40-pin GPIO for other HATs and offers an MCU controlled step-up supply for precise control. There is also an optional DIN-rail kit.

    The Raspberry Pi 4 and other high-end Arm SBCs are increasingly requiring an accessory that was traditionally needed only on x86 devices: the dreaded fan. The fan increases the size, weight, price, power draw, and noise of your Pi while introducing a moving part that is vulnerable to failure.

  • Thin Mini-ITX SBC serves up Tiger Lake, dual 2.5GbE, and USB 4

    IEI’s “tKINO-UL6” is a thin Mini-ITX board with a 11th Gen Tiger Lake ULP3 CPU, quad 4K display support, dual 2.5GbE, dual M.2, PCIe x8 Gen4, 4x USB 3.2 Gen2, and a USB 4 port.

    The tKINO-UL6 is the second thin Mini-ITX board we have seen based on Intel’s 10nm fabricated 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors, following ASRock’s IMB-1224. It is also the second Tiger Lake SBC with a USB 4 port after Aaeon’s community-backed UP Xtreme i11. IEI’s more industrial focused board offers -20 to 60°C support and a 9-36V DC input.
