Status / schedule for carrier boards and metal case

Robert SheltonRobert Shelton Posts: 106New Member

What is the anticipated release schedule for the various carrier board and the fanless metal chassis? Last I heard it was "after fulfilling Kickstarter orders". Since I've already received my Core from the Kickstarter, this is "after" for me.... :) Approximations would be helpful. I'm not looking for exact or commitments.

    Given the normal timescales from aaeon, I would guess around November (year unknown). You might get an answer here around July..
    If anyone has 3d printer/skills, it would be great if someone could fix and publish this:

    So the official case/chassis has eventually been released for the up core. $56 including shipping. Are you guys on drugs?

    AAEON needs to find an alternative to FedEx for reduced cost / speed global shipping. The US distributor is a disaster based on my first hand experiences with them. We need a way to get products shipped to the US without paying as much for shipping as for the products.

    Yes - I have resisted buying things from the up shop due to the cost of shipping.

    This week however I did purchase a new UP board from mouser, which arrived with shipping of about $8. In this particular case it was actually packaged by Intel as I purchased it with the Realsense R200 camera setup. The main issue I see with Mouser is their selection is very limited on what they carry and more particular what they have in stock.

    Hi all,

    Some updates about the carrier board status. We found out we need to rework the high speed carrier board for the mini-PCIe function, and it should be back to our warehouse in 2-3 weeks. For low speed carrier board, we need to have a new PCB fabrication again. Sorry, we are stupid, so we need to make re-schematics. So it will take at least another 6-8 weeks.

    No excuse, it has been too long. Let me check around if anything we can do to help.

    Is there any news on when these will be available and if/when updated schematics will be made available?
