July 30, 2015 - Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the Intel® Compute Stick with Ubuntu Linux, a new generation of computer from Intel Corp. The Compute Stick is a revolutionary new device that enables any screen with an HDMI interface to become a fully functional personal computer. The Compute Stick comes pre-installed with the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS operating system. The Intel Compute Stick is a fully-functional computer in a package similar to a large USB stick.
The new Intel Compute Stick with Ubuntu Linux, available from Mouser Electronics, is powered by a 64-bit 1.33GHz Intel® Atom™ Z3735F Quad-Core processor with 2Mbytes cache, integrated Intel HD graphics, and multi-channel digital audio. The Compute Stick plugs into any display that has an HDMI 1.4a interface. Networking is achieved with onboard IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and peripheral connectivity is available through the Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0 interfaces. Once plugged into a display’s HDMI port, the user powers the Compute Stick with a wall adapter. A status LED indicates the device is powered while both graphics and audio is provided through the HDMI port. The device can be controlled through a wireless keyboard and mouse.
The Intel Compute Stick with Linux is available from Mouser Electronics running a custom build of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS operating system direct from Canonical, with all the latest updates. The stick has 8GBytes of eMMC Flash for user file storage and 1GByte of RAM. An Intel Compute Stick running Microsoft Windows 8.1 is also available from Mouser Electronics. Flash user storage is expandable for both versions through a microSDXC slot on the side of the device.
