Cubieboard2 Powered By AllWinner A20 is now Available for $59

Cubieboard is a low cost board based on AllWinner A10 with lots of ports and expansion pins, that supports Linux and Android. There’s now a new version called Cubieboard2 based on the same board but powered by AllWinner A20 dual core Cortex A7 processor instead, and still with 1GB RAM and 4GB Flash.

Cubieboard2

As you can see the specifications are the same as the original Cubieboard except for the SoC:

  • SoC – AllWinner A20 Dual core ARM Cortex-A7 processor with Mali-400 MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3
  • Storage – 4GB internal NAND flash, up to 64GB on micro SD slot, and up to 2TB on 2.5″ SATA disk
  • Video Output – HDMI
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, plus optional Wi-Fi module
  • USB –  2x USB 2.0 HOST, 1x USB 2.0 OTG
  • Expansion headers – 96 pins including I2C, SPI, RGB/LVDS, CSI/TS, FM-IN, ADC, CVBS, VGA, SPDIF-OUT, R-TP, and more
  • Misc – IR sensor
  • Power – 5VDC input 2A or USB OTG input

The board supports Linux (WIP) and Android, although I don’t seem to find images right now [Update: Android image are here, and Ubuntu 12.04 there. You’ll also find links to source code in those pages]. But there’s definitely progress on the Linux side for AllWinner A20, as Olimex released a preliminary Debiam image for their A20-OlinuXino this morning. Later, a new version of the board will be released with Gb Ethernet since this is supported by A20, and possibly 2GB RAM, but this version only support 10/100M Ethernet. [Update: “CubieTruck” is the name of the upcoming board with AllWinner A20 + 2GB RAM + GbE + on-board Wifi+BT + HDMI/VGA]

Cubieboard2 is now available for $59 + shipping ($10 more than the Cubieboard), and comes with a  USB cable for power, and a SATA cable (data + power).

So how is hardware accelerated playback in XBMC coming along on the Allwinner platform ?

Last i heard they screwed over the XBMC devs, lied to them, and that made Allwinner pretty worthless

2. Can I try the linuxes for the A10 as well ?

As they seem to be almost identical to A20, AND, the directions for use are to me, an experienced Noob, a bit clearer
