World smallest System-On-Module with A20M released, dual instruction set x86 and ARM v7, can run any code in and OS!


SOM

What you see above is our first prototype of A20-SOM-NANO with only 30×15 mm this is the smallest A20 System On Module running Linux, Windows, Android and DR-DOS 3.3!

It’s based on the newly released A20M processor which is dual architecture and can run with ARM and x86 instruction set. This makes possible to use all existing software which runs on ARM and x86 platforms, even the old DOS programs can run on Linux and Window bash command prompt without any modification.

The best of all is that A20M is pin to pin compatible with A20 but with balls on 0.4 mm step and dimensions only 7×7 mm.

Allwinner specially designed this processor for our new module so you will not be able to buy it through their distribution channels.

These modules are assembling now and will be in stock next week!

    There is a downloadable BIOS for the x86 part, too, the revision number is 2016-04-01:)

    I’ve heard they’re so efficient, they actually start to _charge_ the battery if you attach one to them instead of draining it. Remarkable indeed!

    You really should talk to Allwinner about these. You certainly wouldn’t suffer from a lack of customer demand for these boards and chips. Now, we need supply!

    Also, read that All-Whiner is providing detailed chip documentation and source to all drivers i.e cedar, etc for this chip

    Really great! Don’t forget to supply the nano SD card with all those operating systems, the standard micro SD card won’t fit.
