I agree with most of the previous post above but I don't need to use it as a server. I'm working with servos and sensors, so I would like to see more Arduino compatible pins like Atmel ATMEGA2560 pinouts, even as a shield if Arduino header is too big for LP.

Just a few ideas that came out of my build:

Power Jack: Barrel type 5.5mm x 2.1mm. Micro USB has power limitations and is far easier to damage than a power plug. (I NEVER unplug power at the board. Always at the 120VAC plug.) This seems to be the most common size, but I could live with a smaller barrel connector if space is a issue.

Power & Reset buttons should be pin headers (Like the two five volt headers I've plugged fans into.) The micro buttons are VERY easy to break. These make embedded applications very difficult. I've fixed motherboard capacitors several times, but it scares the hell out of me to solder on a board this compact.

Switch the HDMI and MICRO SD card locations. That puts permanent jacks on one
side and jacks that commonly get plugged and unplugged on the other.

M.2 jack or SATAIII connector. A M.2 style SATAIII SSD connector is the way to go, even if deleting the on board storage is required. I'd put it on the back lengthwise with the board.

A three or four pin fan header with PWM? Fan operation should follow the software.

I could easily do without the display and touch panel connectors. I'm using a high definition TV as a monitor. HDMI works really well.

You have one FANTASTIC product. I'm real happy with my installation. These are "Nice to Have" suggestions.

I am extremely pleased and impressed with the latte panda.
But there is one thing I would like to see improved.
I did a speed test on my laptop and was getting about 100 Mb download.
I then did the same test on the panda and only get about 30
I also checked and it doesn't support as many network types as my laptop
And the big thing for me was It doesn't support creating a wifi hotspot (access point)
I was able to do it though using a usb network dongle.

I think in the new board there should be a more universal screen connector becuasethe one it has now is a custom one and there has not been any diffrent sizes oter than 7" one and also gigabyte eithernet and more usb 3.0s would be nice

are you sure that you couldent get it to make a network?
I tried on mine and it made one

yes this is certainly possible

We are using them in industrial control cabinets , 24vdc is a must to minimize interferance especially when running with noisy equipment like VFDs, Motors etc. So the board should accept 5vdc to 24vdc for all use applications.

This also cuts down on cost since everything else runs on the same power source.


M2 ports for the latest generation of solid state performance.

As far as resetable bios and bios flashing goes, there should be a jumper that must be enabled to allow the bios to be flashed... Security is always a second thought for manufacturers i dont know why... even desktop computers lack this basic functionality that prevents high level hacks that are unseen by the operating system.


lastly Windows 10 pro activated.... IoT needs group policy for good security as well as stripping windows 10 telemetry and bloatware for better performance of these small devices and quite frankly you guys get better pricing

I would propoase the follwoing for new board...
1. All connectors for USB,Ethernet,HDMI are at one side and others are can be PIN type connector like CN2.
2. Windows IoT Core is preferred as it comes with free or Windows IoT Enterprises with lesser cost.
3. Interface like SPI,I2C,Few GPIO.

I would like to have gigabye eathernet, a type c connector and I absolutely hate how the only screen I can use is a 7 inch. I also hate that I keep hearing that there will be a 5inch and then it never happens so please have support for one becuase I can't make what I wanna make with a 7" and ive been waiting for over a year
