I am new on to the Latte Panda scene, so far I'm enjoying it, I'm not going to be doing any
maker projects or build any robots, I just really enjoy tiny computers and if a revision 3.0
system board is released I will jump on it if enough worth while improvements are included.
For me I really like having a removable eMMC card on it. I have a feeling my Latte Panda
has the eMMC chip underneath the top metal plate, I've been itching to pop that sucker off
and try poking at it, but I haven't had the heart to potentially wreck it just yet. :p
A removable eMMC card would allow for storage upgrades, but also replacing chips with
different OS's installed on them, kinda like how people would swap out SD cards on
Raspberry Pi's.
But if not for a eMMC card, why not a m.2 slot, or a sata port? Any option is good for me,
as long it offers flexibility.
Otherwise the only other real feature that I want right now is more Linux friendly features,
I have not had a chance to learn about all of these new bios features and Windows 10,
like the UEFI, TPM, and there's probably a few other things that Microsoft needs in the bios
to make Windows 10 better, some how...
Is it possible to have a Latte Panda with a more basic bios/firmware? That's more Linux friendly?

Dear MobileJAD,

Welcome to this new tinker community. And thanks for your kind suggestion about LattePanda. I have some ideas to share about some official thoughts about the next gen product.
1. We shall officially support Linux our second product definitely.
2. Yes. A removable eMMC design could be flexible for different application and OS requirement. But from the hardware level I think it's not easy to make eMMC chip removable. So a better socket design like m.2 and SATA will be the best option for that purpose! ;P

We spend months to plan and design our new product line. Just want to deliver the best hardware for developers/makers. Let's wait and look forward to it.

When we can wait LattePanda v2? I need SBC in my project, but no one of released board does not compatible with my requirements (z8750 or analogue, 8Gb of ram, price less then $200 and dimensions 141x77mm or less)

Hello

I am very interested in LattePanda.
We want to develop a product using the current LattePanda.
But splash logo is forced when booting.

I would like to keep the Splash Logo invisible when used in a product.
I would like to know how to delete Splash Logo.

I look forward to a good answer.

Can change the boot image to Micorsoft logo in BIOS directly, just need to close the Quiet Boot function in bios setting menu. :)

Hi...i am a new user here. As per my knowledge many user will have to touch the BIOS whether they prefer or not. Without a safety measure liked auto BIOS recovery Lattepanda should called a mini PC motherboard not a development board where users are not recommended to touch the bios.

Is it at all possible to upgrade it from 2GB RAM to 4GB of RAM? (2gb/32gb LattePanda ?)

We also have 4/64G version selling, how do you use the board? Does the 2G version is not enough to you? Would you mind tell us more about your project? :P

good days,


Are you replacing 2g/32 with 4g/64?

I paid the price difference.
