Ultra-compact Apollo Lake net appliance has mini-PCIe and M.2 too

Axiomtek’s “NA347” network appliance runs Linux or Win 10 on a dual-core Celeron N3350 with up to 8GB RAM, 3x GbE, 2x USB 3.0, HDMI, M.2 for SATA, and mini-PCIe and nano-SIM for wireless.

Axiomtek has released an even smaller, 146 x 118.2 x 26mm variation on its quad-port, 146 x 118.2 x 33.5mm NA346 network appliance. The NA347 similarly runs Yocto-based Linux or Win 10 on a dual-core, up to 2.4GHz Celeron N3350 Apollo Lake SoC with a a 6W TDP. The 3-port system is designed as an entry-level SD-WAN, VPN, and security gateway for small and home offices and other IIoT security applications

Like the NA346, the NA347 supports up to 8GB of DDR3L-1866. The appliance offers 3x Intel I211 based GbE ports with optional LAN bypass. There is also an RJ45 console port.


Unlike the previous model, the system adds an M.2 B-key 2242 slot for SATA storage. The NA346 once again provides a full-size mini-PCIe slot (PCIe/USB) for WiFi or cellular modules, accompanied by a nano-SIM slot and 4x antenna mounts.

The NA347 provides 2x USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and a watchdog. The system lacks the earlier model’s GPIO and optional TPM 2.0 and is limited to a single LED for power.

The 0.28 kg system supplies a screw-type 12V/3A DC jack and supports 0 to 40°C temperatures with 10%-90%, non-condensing relative humidity tolerance. Options include rack- and wall-mount kits, cables, and M.2 SSD and mini-PCIe wireless modules.

Further information

The NA347 is available now at an undisclosed price. More information may be found in Axiomtek’s announcement and product page.
