Pipo X8 X9 and X10 PC

The Pipo X8, X9 and X10 full Windows 10 mini PC

The Pipo mini PC are ideal for amateur radio applications.  It offers a good alternative to the famous (Linux) Raspberry Pi.  It’s low cost, it works on 12 Volts DC, it’s design is perfect for table top operations, it has 4 USB port, HDMI port, MicroSD slot and an integrated touch screen.  It can run the Yeasu Wires-X software and a DV4mini simultaneously.  It’s also dual boot with Android.

I also test the SDRplay with the SDRuno software on the X9 64G, it works but you need to reduce the spectrum bandwidth to have a decent audio reception.  If it’s to wide, it will lag in the audio.

Here’s the Pipo series with there respective specs.  You can also buy them via the links below. Please note that the Pipo X9S and X10 offers better performance that I couldn’t test since I don’t have one on hands.
