S3-OLinuXino Open Source Hardware Linux dual camera board status uppdate April 2021

S3-OLinuXino is small open source hardware Linux computer with Ethernet, dual camera interface, running mainline uboot and Linux Kernel 5.12.

Our hardware went through few iterations, but last Revision.C now is in production and we will have it for sale on our web at the end of the April.

This board has small PoE plug-on top module which adds PoE functionality, so the whole setup board + cameras can be powered via Ethernet.

The camera connectors are made compatible with OV2640 2Mpix camera and Raspberry Pi Camera.

S3-OLinuXino has LCD connector where LCD-OLinuXino displays can be connected.

WiFi/BT module adds wireless functionality.

Open Source Hardware S3-OLinuXino update – The new board targeting industrial vision applications is now with mainline Linux support

S3-OLinuXino is board we create to may add vision to the PTH components Soldering Robot we are working on for some time.

Revision.B now is a bit different than the first prototype we made. It has these features:

  • S3 SOC Cortex-A7 running at 1.2Ghz
  • 1Gb DDR3 RAM inside S3 SOC up to 1333Mhz
  • MIPI Raspberry Pi camera interface up to 8Mpix camera support
  • Parallel CSI camera interface up to 8 Mpix
  • Power Management Unit with LiPo battery charger and step-up to allow stand alone battery operation
  • 100Mb Ethernet interface with POE support (external optional module)
  • SPI, NAND, eMMC external optional module
  • LCD connector to connect to LCD-OLinuXino displays with different sizes and resolutions
  • LiPo battery connector
  • USB-OTG interface
  • UEXT connector with SPI, I2C, Serial and power supply
  • EXT1 connector for LED PWM lighting
  • audio input with microphone
  • audio output
  • WiFi and BT module with external antenna
  • micro SD card connector

We are working to offer Mainline Linux with this board.
Bootlin got sample board and have working MIPI driver.

S3-OLinuXino can take power from USB, LiPo battery or PoE (with optional PoE module).

Different NAND Flash, SPI Flash, eMMC flash options are possible with addon module

The only thing we still didn’t complete is USB-OTG functionality.

Mass production is planned for March 2021.
