PINE A64+ Board Giveaway

PINE A64 and A64+ board are incredibly inexpensive, but still not free, so when PINE64 asked if they could give eight PINE64+ boards with 1GB RAM and the WiFi & Bluetooth module to CNX Software readers, I thought it was not a bad idea, and I’ve decided to organize a giveaway.

The eight boards given away will have the following specs:

  • SoC – Allwinner A64 quad core ARM Cortex A53 processor @ 1.2 GHz with Mali-400MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 1 GB DDR3
  • Storage – micro SD slot supporting up to 256 GB
  • Video Output – HDMI 1.4 up to 4K resolution @ 30 Hz, and 4-lane MIPI DSI connector and touch panel connector
  • Audio – HDMI, 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet + WiFi & Bluetooth module
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Camera – MIPI CSI camera interface
  • Expansion – 40-pin Raspberry Pi 2 compatible header + 34-pin “Euler” header
  • Misc – RTC header
  • Power – 5V via micro USB port; 3.7V Lithium battery support
  • Dimensions – 127mm x 79mm

The company provides support for Android 5.1.1 and Linux 3.18 (soon 4.2), and various community based distributions as available such as Ubuntu 16.04, or Debian Jessie. You can see how the board compares other low cost 64-bit ARM boards in my Raspberry Pi 3, ODROID-C2 and Pine A64+ comparison. Pine A64+ is about twice as cheap and comes with many of the features of the other boards.

To enter the draw simply leave a comment below.

Other rules are as follows:

  • Only one entry per contest. I will filter out entries with the same IP and/or email address.
  • The contest are open for 72 hours starting on April 25, 10:00am (Bangkok time). The comments section will be closed once the contest ends, so if it is open, you can still participate.
  • Winners will be selected with random.org, and announced in the comments section of the giveaway.
  • I’ll contact the winners by email, and expect an answer within 24 hours, or run another draw for people who have not replied in time.
  • PINE64 will handle shipping (free of charge) to the winners, so I’ll share the winners’ email with the company so that they can proceed.

Good luck! If you end up being unlucky, you can always purchase one or more boards on Pine64 website.

  1. Really powerful configuration with low cost. Waiting to be chosen by randomiser.

  2. Really useful piece of hardware at a great price. Hoping that I’m lucky #11!

  3. Well equipped board and a nice Wiki, count me in.
    Thanks for the contest CNX and PINE64.

  4. Cool! Love the “Designed in Silicon Valley, California – Built in Silicon Delta, China”

  5. Would be strange to get it from cnx, before the one I am waiting from Kickstarter…

  6. I am interested in.
    Now I have to wait, if it turns out that I am lucky. 🙂

  7. wow! with RTC/battery support there is a lot potential for this board (field / periphery)

  8. Didn’t think there are so many readers 😛 I too would like to participate 🙂

  9. Cool, If I win, I`ll test it together with one of my 3D printers as printer server

  10. just wondering if all the guys that complined about this board now are in for the giveaway (how ironic)

  11. Seems like a great board. Rtc header makes it even more interesting. All the SBCs supporting Linux, makes the embedded world an exciting place to be around. CNX has been a great place for seeing new boards even as they are being planned and a great place for review of the boards once they are released.

  12. I missed the kickstarter on this by about a day or two!
    Guess I’ll have a chance to get one now, huh? 😛

  13. I’d like to win the random pineboard giveaway. i love mali400mp2 gpu as a desktop 2d use and powerefficient arm cores.

  14. Please add me to a draw 🙂 And thank you for great site, I read it almost everyday.

  15. I am very much interested to test my OpenCV i.e computer vision algorithms on it.

  16. I would definitely love to test Fedora 24 on this board. Let’s see if this could happen.

  17. In my country we have a saying.

    “When free, even salt is sweet.”

    Not that this board isn’t sweet already. 😀

  18. I’ve never “played” with anything like this…! Thanks, guys, for the chance! 😉

  19. Was a kickstart backer for one, but could always use another for “crash and burn”.
