We already have an active campaign in Indiegogo to fund a new development board based on the SoC RK3399, which we see in abundance on multiple PCBs. With the FireFly ROC-RK3399-PC board we can have a miniPC with multiple functions thanks to its complete and powerful hardware and its compatibility with Android and Linux. They have dual video output and the possibility of expansion with an optional board.
SoC, RAM and storage
The FireFly ROC-RK3399-PC board includes the Rockchip RK3399 SoC as a brain, a six-core with a cluster with two ARM Cortex-A72 processors capable of reaching 2.0Ghz and another cluster with four ARM Cortex-A53 processors, a GPU level has an ARM Mali-T860mp4 with support for decoding H.26 / H.264 and VP9 4K @ 60fps codecs among others. We also have 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM while for storage we have a socket for eMMc 5.1 memory and a microSD card reader, although through an expansion card we can have an M.2 port to install an SSD.
For connectivity, the options are multiple since we have between one of the integrated options two USB 3.0 ports, 3 USB 2.0, 2 USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0a video output, a DisplayPort 1.2, Gigabit Ethernet connector, IR sensor, 3 MIPI connectors, PCIexpress x2 and a long etcetera. If we want Wifi and/or Bluetooth connectivity we can also use the expansion card with an exclusive M.2 port for this type of boards.
On this board we can run Ubuntu 18.04, Debian9, Linux + QT and Android 8.1. More information on your Wiki.
