RK3188-SOM and RK3188-SOM-4GB system on modules are now in stock, these modules have same size as A20-SOM 81.28 x 55.88 mm and use same 0.05″ connectors, well they are not exchangeable though.
RK3188 is quad core, Cortex-A9 running at 1.6GHz. What does this means? Comparing to A20 you can expect everything to run about 10 times faster.
As power requirements, it takes more power than A20 obviously you pay for the performance and the higher clock rates.
For these who want to make their own board we made RK3188-SOM-EVB template with:
- 100Mb Ethernet
- x4 USB hosts
- RTC clock and backup battery
- +6-16VDC power supply
- LCD connector where you can connect LCD-OLinuXino-XX LCDs
- 2x 40 pin 0.1″ step GPIO connectors
RK3188-SOM starts from EUR 35 for 1000 pcs and it’s probably least expensive quad core Cortex-A9 1.6Ghz module on the market, the RK3188-SOM-4GB starts from EUR 40 / 1000 pcs.
The evaluation board RK3188-SOM-EVB cost EUR 70
