PC Engines APU3C2 Board
The PC Engines APU3C2 with 2GB RAM system board is a robust platform. With 1 GHz quad-core CPU and AES-NI support, it can be used as high-performance, secure router, firewall or the Internet of Things gateway. Device’s capability can be extended by additional mPCIe cards to support other IoT communication protocols, e.g LoRa. With iPXE support, you can easily develop and deploy new solutions for your IoT network.
