Last month, we found out FriendlyELEC was working on NanoPi NEO3, a tiny SBC powered by Rockchip RK3328 processor and made for headless applications and networked storage thanks to Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 ports, as well as a 26-pin GPIO header.
At the time, the board was still been finalized, but the company has now started to take orders for $20 and up depending on options which include a cute white enclosure..
- SoC – Rockchip RK3328 quad-core Arm Cortex A53 processor with Mali-450MP2 GPU
- System Memory – 1GB or 2GB DDR4
- Storage – MicroSD Slot for system boot and storage
- Video Output – N/A
- Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet with unique MAC via RTL8211E PHY
- USB – 1x USB3.0 Type-A port, 2x USB2.0 on 2.54mm 8-pin header
- Expansion – 26-pin header with I2C, UART, SPI, I2S, GPIO
- Debugging – 3-pin header for serial console
- Misc – Power & System LEDs, user key, 2-pin header for 5V Fan
- Power Supply – 5V/1A via USB Type-C port or GPIO pin
- PCB Dimensions – 48 x 48mm

The $20 price tag is for the version with 1GB RAM, and you’ll need to add $5 to get 2GB RAM and an extra $2 for the enclosure. The company also offers other optional accessories as follows:
