LattePanda has brought its latest single-board computer, the powerful LattePanda 3 Delta, from the crowdfunding circuit to the general supply chain, partnering with a range of distributors to get the machine into users' hands globally.

"LattePanda Team is so proud to cooperate with the global electronic components distributors for this joint launch," says LattePanda's Sandy Zhang of the launch. "It delivers an exciting message to our customers that they can gain fast, easy access to our high-performance and hackable LattePanda 3 Delta anywhere in the world. Our collaboration will assure even higher levels of customer service."

The company's most powerful design yet, the LattePanda 3 Delta comes with a quad-core Intel Celeron N5105 running at up to 2.9GHz, up to 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB of on-board eMMC storage with M.2 M- and B-key expansion for NVMe and SATA storage respectively, Wi-Fi 6 Bluetooth 5.2, and gigabit Ethernet connectivity. As with previous LattePanda boards, the new model also includes an Arduino Leonardo-compatible coprocessor system for enhanced general-purpose input/output (GPIO) capabilities.

The company originally made the LattePanda 3 Delta available exclusively through crowdfunding, launching a Kickstarter campaign in November last year, which brought in more than $242,000 from 883 backers. The boards were originally scheduled to reach backers in March this year, but delays driven by pandemic-related factory closures pushed fulfillment to mid-July.

The company's partnership with global distributors will, it hopes, make it easier for those who didn't back the crowdfunding campaign to order the board and get it in their hands more quickly. LattePanda also appears to be expecting considerable interest from those already running earlier board models, boasting of double the CPU and triple the GPU performance for common workloads.

More information on the LattePanda 3 Delta can be found on the company's website.
