Utilite2 powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor is CompuLab’s smallest Linux desktop ever
Yokneam, Israel – 1-Dec-2014 – CompuLab is introducing Utilite2 – the next generation of its highly acclaimed ARM-based Utilite desktop computer.
Featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with a quad-core 1.7GHz Krait™ 300 CPU and Adreno™ 320 GPU, 2GB RAM, eMMC and mSATA storage, Utilite2 delivers twice the performance of its predecessor. Designed into an elegant aluminum die-cast housing and measuring only 3.4” x 3.4” x 1.1”, Utilite2 is also 30% smaller than the previous generation. With dual-antenna 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Gbit Ethernet and cellular communication module expansion socket, Utilite2 provides an unprecedented array of networking interfaces.
Utilite2 will be offered with fully featured, desktop-grade Ubuntu Linux or Android operating systems delivering rich multimedia and PC-like user experience. Linux for Utilite2 will be supported in Linaro builds for Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.
Designed as an open platform, developer-friendly commercial grade product, Utilite2 is particularly attractive to software developers. Utilite2 will be supported in main-line kernel and CompuLab intends to collaborate closely with the open-source community to expand the software eco-system around the platform.
“Doubling performance between Utilite generations while reducing form-factor is a noteworthy achievement,” said Igor Vaisbein, VP Business Development at CompuLab. “High performance, best in class graphics and rich connectivity make Utilite2 an outstanding solution for a variety of applications such as media players, IPTV, infotainment systems, digital signage, thin client and small-footprint desktop replacement.”
Utilite2 is designed for user serviceability – mSATA storage and cellular module socket are accessible through a removable bottom cover.
