Boardcon MINI6818 CPU Module Features Samsung S5P6818 Octa-core Processor

Update: a defect has been found, so the board is not for sale anymore.

Samsung S5P6818 octa-core Cortex A53 processor has already been found in several single board computers and development boards including Graperain G6818 SBC and NanoPi M3 board, but so far I had not seen it implemented into a system-on-module to be used in custom designs, and that’s just was Boardcon did with their MINI6818 CPU module.

MINI6818Boardcon MINI6818 SoM specifications:

Samsung_S5P6818_SoMThe company provides support for Android 5.1, Linux 3.4.39+ and Uboot 2014.07 on the board, together with all drivers. I’ve been told the Linux implementation is not that good on S5Pxx18 processors though, and there’s no hope of getting mainline kernel, but if the hardware match your requirements, and don’t plan to mess around with the kernel too much, that could still be an option.

EM4418_BaseboardA baseboard can also be used for evaluation with access to all features exposed by the CPU module including Ethernet, USB ports, HDMI, VGA, audio ports, LVDS, TTL LCD, as well as some extra chips for GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity. The baseboard is also compatible with the company’s MINI4418 (Samsung S5P4418 quad core Cortex A53) and MINI3288 (Rockchip RK3288) CPU modules
