FriendlyARM announces a new development board called NanoPC-T3 that embeds an interesting SoC with Samsung S5P6818. A solution architected eight cores in ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit. The solution will be developed in 1 or 2 GB of RAM and will carry a storage via the usual microSDXC card reader.
The solution will be offered at $ 60 in its basic version and will run various Linux solutions. Images of Debian and Ubuntu are available for card and a version for Android.
The NanoPC-T3 features a classic Wifi 802.11b / g / n with an antenna connection IPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and Gigabit Ethernet controlled by a Realtek chipset classic. The usual development of connectors: 30 GPIO pins, an LVDS connector, a connector for RGB LCD, a MIPI-CSI, and a DVP connector. Two camera connectors therefore to drive two modules in parallel.
USB 2.0 ports are present, as well as an audio jack port, an embedded microphone and HDMI 1.4a output. The dimensions are very traditional: 10 cm wide and 6 cm deep. Power is 5 volts via a conventional connector or via a battery into a standard outlet. Note that the PMU of the card is a AXP228 manages software programs: Possible to wake the NanoPC-T3 to time as programmed in software to turn it off.
As usual with FriendlyARM, you will find a comprehensive Wiki about the map that will detail many of his technical and software.
