FriendlyARM released a new member to NanoPC family. NanoPC-T3. It’s a powerful board for $75 (without shipping).
The NanoPC-T3 Plus octa-core single board computer is designed and developed for professional and enterprise users. It uses the Samsung Octa-Core Cortex-A53 S5P6818 SoC. Compared to the FriendlyELEC NanoPC-T2 the NanoPC-T3 Plus not only has all the T2’s interfaces and ports but also has a more powerful SoC. Its dynamic frequency scales from 400M up to 1.4GHz. The NanoPC-T3 Plus has 16G eMMC onboard, audio jack, video input/output interfaces, built-in WiFi, Bluetooth and Gbps Ethernet port. In addition the NanoPC-T3 Plus) has power management, on board porcelain antenna and serial debug port. To avoid overheat issues the NanoPC-T3 Plus has a heat sink with mounting holes.
The NanoPC-T3 Plus has two camera interfaces: a DVP camera interface and a MIPI-CSI interface, and four video interfaces: HDMI 1.4A, LVDS, parallel RGB-LCD interface and MIPI-DSI interface. It supports RTC and has RTC interface pins. It has four USB ports with three being type A ports and one being 2.54mm pitch pin-headers.
The NanoPC-T3 Plus supports multiple OS systems e.g. Android5.1, Debian and UbuntoCore+Qt. It is an open source project with rich interfaces and ports.
