Jesurun A19 and Mele M5 Android STBs Powered by AllWinner A20

After Cloudsto A20 Media PC, and GV-17, we’ve now got more choices for AllWinner A20 based Android set-top boxes with Jesurun A19 and Mele M5, both featuring 1GB RAM, and running Android 4.2, with the former fitted with 4GB NAND flash and the latter 8GB. Those are ones of the few devices featuring SATA support, and optical SPDIF. Jerusun A19 also comes with VGA output.

Jesurun A19

Jesurun A19 Specifications:

  • SoC – Allwinner A20 dual core Cortex A7 up to 1.2 GHz + Mali-400 MP2 GPU
  • System Memory - 1GB DDR3 RAM

Mele M5

Mele M5

The specifications are basically the same as Jesurun A19, except the following:

  • Video Output – HDMI up to 3840 X 2160 (UHD), and AV (No VGA)
  • Storage – 8GB NAND Flash + SD card slot (up to 128GB) + SATA interface
  • USB – 3x USB Host ports + 1x micro USB OTG port (But I can find this one in the pics)
  • Weight and Dimensions – N/A

Mele M5 comes with an IR remote, a power adapter, a quick start guide, and, maybe, but I’m not sure, an HDMI cable. This product is sold directly by Mele on Aliexpress for $89.99 excluding shipping. [Update: Mele M5 is available on DealExtreme for $87.10 including shipping]

AllWinner A20 source code has been released, so both devices will likely be able to run Linux booted from SD card or internal flash. As this SoC integrates a Mali-400 MP2 GPU, you’ll be able to get 2D/3D graphics acceleration in Linux without having to resort to libhybris, which will take more time to implement, but support more devices including SoC featuring PowerVR GPUs.

    This is very interesting, perhaps the next year will be the linux year for arm devices.

    Oops… I was so sure it had the same ports as the Mele A1000, and I’m pretty sure I saw a Mele A20 device with VGA output in one of Charbax videos, but obviously not this model. They must have shown Mele A100 Dual in the video I saw (See Mele product line – http://www.cnx-software.com/pdf/Shenzhen%20Mele%20products%20lines%202013%20apr.pdf), and this one has one VGA port.

    The Tmall page shows the back of the M5. There are AV RCA connector, but no VGA

    There are a few other interesting images (Mele factory, all the tests they do, how good is their build quality…)

    The Jesurun had VGA and composite. Isn’t possible to make linux work here ?

    Will Mele’s F10 work on -any- android ?

    @pingpong
    Yes for Linux, but be patient.

    As long as you have a USB Host port, it should work on any Android devices.

    Hi,

    anybody with Mele M5 here? What kind of connectors are on the board? Can you please post some high resolution images of the board? Feel free to create a page on the sunxi-wiki, http://www.linux-sunxi.org

    Thanks
