Forlinx OKT507-C single board computer for automotive applications is powered by FETT507-C system-in-module equipped with Allwinner T507 industrial processor, 2GB RAM, and 8GB eMMC flash.
Allwinner T507 offers the same features as Allwinner H616 for TV boxes with a quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, a Mali G31 MP2 GPU, and the same I/Os, but the processor is AEC-Q100 certified, supports -40°C to +85°C temperature range, and Allwinner promises over 10 years of longevity.

Forlinx provides Linux 4.9 with Qt 5.12 and Android 10 for the module and board, and an Ubuntu 18.04 BSP is apparently in the works. So that’s for customers who don’t mind running two to four years old software in their products. It’s not the first time we write about the Allwinner T507 SoC, since we noticed it in an Allwinner roadmap, but it’s the first time we see it implemented into a board/product.
Forlinx OKT507-C SBC is listed for $150 to $200 on Alibaba. Additional information may be found on the product page.
Thanks to theguyuk for the tip.

Yeah, no thanks.
I’m a developer of automotive electronics, and Allwinner is the last component supplier I’d choose. Their datasheets are a joke, compared to the ones that renowned semiconductor manufacturers offer.
I take it you’ve never tried to get support from them? It’s even worse imho.
It’s quite possible most of Allwinner’s customers are now in mainland China, so they can’t send an FAE to help, as documentation and software are not up to the task.
I don’t think they have ever sent an FAE outside of the PRC anyhow, so that’s hardly the issue. The fact that they’re very snobbish and think they’re better than their customers, is just the first thing to get past. Then when you run into an actual issue, they’re not even trying to help and at best points to some page in their lacklustre documentation. So how they intend to break into the intended market for this product, I know not.
it’s fact that a separate customer to get technical support directly from Allwinner or any other semiconductor companies, mainly their support is for important customers, in this case, if you buy a development kit or SoM from a supplier, they will be able to provide direct technical support and give necessary suggestions to end customers. Because it is easier for the ARM board company to get reference files and supports directly from the semiconductor companies.
