Compute Card (Intel Compute Card)

Contributor(s): Matthew Haughn

Intel Compute Card is a device that includes everything needed to add a computing base to smart and connected devices. The add-on device comes in a 95x55x5mm package, the size of a stack of five credit cards.

Designed as a universal compute platform, Compute Card is intended to ease development, maintenance and upgrading of compute-enabled devices, appliances, kiosks and business workstations – as well as applications that don't yet exist.

In this tiny package, Intel has crammed a system on a chip (SoC) with an estimated 6W TDP. It has built-in DRAM and NAND flash for storage. I/O is handled by a multipurpose USB-C with logical connectivity in PCIe, HDMI, display port and more. The platform includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity.

Being a sealed unit, the Compute Card itself cannot be internally upgraded or serviced by the user. However, the device offers a low-cost alternative for repairing or upgrading compute-enabled devices where otherwise entire unit replacement may be necessary. Future upgrades to the platform are done by swapping out the tiny unit for newer models.

Launch partners for the Intel Compute Card include HP, Lenovo, Dell and Sharp.
