Detailed Description


The Intel® Aero Compute Board is a purpose-built, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developer kit powered by a quad-core Intel Atom® Processor and geared toward UAV developers, researchers, and enthusiasts.

While only the size of a standard playing card, it features abundant storage capabilities, 802.11ac Wi-Fi*, support for multiple cameras including the Intel® RealSense™ Camera R200, which is part of the optional Intel® Aero Vision Accessory Kit, industry standard interfaces, and reconfigurable I/O to facilitate connecting to a broad variety of drone hardware subsystems.

The compute board ships with the open-source Yocto Linux* operating system, and offers sample applications and APIs for flight and vision interfaces, reducing hurdles for developers of sophisticated drone applications.

Important Note: It is necessary to update the BIOS, FPGA, and Flight Controller for this software release. Instructions to update the BIOS, FPGA and Flight Controller are located on the Wiki.
