H3-OLinuXino-NANO update – it work with 8Gb DDR3L too so this small board can have 1GB RAM also


H3 has dual DDR chip select so when we routed the board connected both to the DDR package but were not sure if it will work, now when we had prototypes decided to replace the 4Gb DDR3L memory with 8Gb DDR3L memory.

The result was success! H3 booted and show 1GB available memory, this means we can assembly 8Gb memory to next revision of H3-OLinuXino which have two chips and have 2GB RAM on it.

The bad news is that 8Gb memories are very new and their prices per chip are almost x4 times more expensive than 4Gb memory chips (i.e. 1GB made with 8Gb chip cost 2 times more than 1GB made with 4Gb chips).

    God news. Perhaps slowly is in SD.

    Nice! Perhaps bring out one model at first (512MB or 1GB) and then if the board sells well you offer multiple RAM options?

    Gigabits or Gigabytes?

    The kernel does not detect 2GB or what?

      @zoobab: You seem to be confused with H3-OLinuXino und H3-OLinuXino-NANO. The latter is so small that only one memory package fits on the board (which means 1GB, if an 8Gb chip is used). The larger H3-OLinuXino will have space enough for two chips, such that 2GB will be possible.

    Dates? Prices? I have a lot of SbC but no one from Olimex and I want this for my “First Contact”.

    can you detail or approximate the actual cost of the memory price difference?

    Any signs of Allwinner doing Android Lollipop for the H3?

    What happened with this? Is this project dead?
