Boardcon Introduces Rockchip RK3399 PICO3399 CPU Module and EM3399 Baseboard

Orange Pi Development Boards

There’s a limited number of boards based on Rockchip RK3399 processor, with the easiest to work with (for non-Chinese readers) probably being Firefly-RK3399. Shenzhen Xunlong is working on their own Orange Pi RK3399 board, 9Tripod released their X3399 SoM and devkit, Boardcon has also launched their own RK3399 SoM (system-on-module) and baseboard solution with respectively PICO3399 CPU module and EM3399 board.

PICO3399 SoM specifications:

  • SoC – Rockchip RK3399 hexa core processor with a dual ARM Cortex-A72 core cluster @ up to 2.0 GHz, quad ARM Cortex-A53 cluster, and ARM Mali-T860MP4 GPU
  • System Memory – 4GB LPDDR3
  • Storage – 8GB eMMC flash
  • 314-pin edge connector with 2x USB2.0 Host, 2x USB3.0 or 2x  Type-C, UART, MIPI, GbE, HDMI in&out, Audio, I2C, I2S, PCI-E, SD/MMC/SDIO, GPIO, eDP..
  • Power Supply – 5V
  • Dimensions – 82 x 50mm (8 layers)

The company provides support  for Android6.0.1 and Debian for the module. If the info provided in the website is correct, the Android BSP includes Linux 4.4.36 kernel, U-boot 2014-10, and drivers, while the Debian BSP includes Linux 4.4.41 kernel, U-boot 2016-12-03, and drivers.

You can get started quickly with the CPU module using EM3399 development board with the following specifications:

  • Socket for PICO3399 CPU module
  • External storage – 1x micro SD socket, PCIe connector for SSD
  • Display & Video Output
    • Output – 1x eDP LCD via 40-pin header, 2x MIPI DSI connector, 1x HDMI 1.4/2.0 port
    • Input – HDMI input via TC358749XBG
  • Audio – ALC5651 audio codec; 3.5mm audio jack
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet (RJ45) port, optional 802.11 b/g/n/ac WiFi & Bluetooth 4.1 (AP6354), SIM card slot, optional 3G/4G mini PCIe card
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host, 1x USB3.0 host, 1x USB Type-C
  • Camera I/F – 2x MIPI CSI with 3D capture support
  • Expansion
    • 1x PCIe x4 slot for graphics card
    • 1x PCIe connector for SSD or 3G module
    • 5 “GPIO” headers for a total of 122 I/Os
  • Debugging – 1x 3-pin UART header
  • Misc – RTC powered by external lithium battery; Recover, Power, Reset buttons;
  • Power Supply – 12V/2A via power barrel
  • Dimensions – 145 x 100 mm

The module is expected to be used in application such as  smart devices, digital signage, all-in-one machines, PoS systems, vehicle control terminals, etc…

The module and board appear to be available now, but price is not public since I understand the company focuses on the B2B market. You’ll find further details on the product page.
