Rockchip RK3566 Raspberry Pi board

Geniatech lists Android 11 and Debian 10 Linux (buildroot) operating systems support, but there’s no public documentation just yet. For reference, you’ll find documentation, OS images, and/or BSP for the earlier XPI-RK3128, XPI-RK32888, and XPI-IM8XMM boards on the company’s website.

Geniatech does not target the hobbyist market with its XPI family, but instead, the XPI series are designed for companies developing commercial-grade products in collaboration with the Shenzhen company. There’s no pricing and availability for the board just yet, but it may eventually show up on Geniatech shop together with their other Arm boards. Further details may be found on the product page.

Still don’t understand why they put the add on board over the heatsink. If I recall right they have done so before.

Out of spite and hatred towards whole mankind. I cannot find any other explanation.
