There are so many Rockchip RK3399 SBCs that it’s getting boring, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Rockchip RK3399 SBC that follows the PCIe card form factor, and that’s exactly what Geniatech SDM3399 offers.
The board/card comes with up to 4GB RAM, up to 64GB flash, and exposes Gigabit Ethernet, USB ports, and an audio jack via the PCIe bracket.
Geniatech SDM3399 specifications:
- SoC – Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core processor with 2x Cortex-A72 cores @ 1.8 GHz, four Cortex-A53 cores @ 1.4 GHz, Arm Mali-T860MP4 GPU 800MHz
- System Memory – 2GB DDR (4GB optional）
- Storage – 8GB eMMC flash (16GB/32GB/64GB optional）
- Audio – 3.5mm audio jack
- Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port
- 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFI 4 and Bluetooth
- USB – 2x USB 2.0 ports
- Expansion – 1x M.2 socket
- Intel SDM Connector – PCIe x 8 (98-pin) SMT connector with HDMI output, DisplayPort output 2x USB 2.0, 1x serial port
- Battery port – External Battery
- Dimensions – 100 x 60 x 25mm
The company provides “Android 7.1 or above” for the board/card, and says it’s designed for digital signage or kiosk display solutions, smart display solutions, and system integration.
But why? That a bit confusing until we realize the keyword in the specifications is SDM which stands for “Standard Display Module”, and I previously wrote about this type of board with Axiomtek SDM300S Intel Apollo Lake Smart Display Module. That’s a standard by Intel designed specifically for digital signage, and available in either SDM-S (Small) form factor used by Geniatech SDM3999, or a larger SDM-L (Large) form factor, for which you can find many examples on Intel’s website.
Geniatech did not provide pricing for the board, but you can find additional information on the product page.
