Commell LE-370 SBC Packs Tiger Lake CPU, PCIe 4 And GbE 2.5 Into Tiny Package
For starters, the LE-370 forgoes a miserly Arm-based processor like competitors from Raspberry Pi and instead uses an 11th generation Intel Tiger Lake processor. In this case, we're looking at a 4-core/8-thread Core i7-1185G7E processor with Iris Xe graphics, although you can opt for a less potent dual-core Celeron 6305E if outright performance isn't your immediate goal.
That processor can be paired with up to 32GB DDR4-3200 memory via a single SO-DIMM slot, and there are two SATA-III ports for storage along with two M.2 slots. One of those slots can be used to accommodate an M.2-based Wi-Fi/Bluetooth expansion card. Other features include a mini PCIe slot, a 2.5 GbE port, a GbE port, and four USB 3.2 Type-A ports. In addition, the LE-370 has you covered with full-size HDMI, DisplayPort, and a VGA connector for video output.
The LE-370 is classified as a "3.5-inch form-factor" SBC (despite being slightly larger in width), with dimensions of 3.97" x 5.67". Here's are the full specifications for the SBC:
- CPU: Intel® Tiger Lake UP3 Processor in the FCBGA1449 sockets.
- Memory: One DDR4 3200 MHz SO-DIMM up to 32 GB, support Non-ECC, unbuffered memory.

- GPIO interface: Onboard programmable 8-bit Digital I/O interface.
According to Commell, the LE-370 fully supports Linux and Windows 10. However, there's no word yet on if it has a TPM 2.0 module to support Windows 11. Unfortunately, pricing and launch date aren't available at this point.
