Firefly AIO-3588SG – A compact, low-profile 8K SBC with WiFi 6 and Gigabit Ethernet

Firefly AIO-3588SG is a compact, low-profile SBC with Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 6, and an 8K capable USB-C port with DisplayPort that is based on the company’s Core-3588SG module powered by a Rockchip RK3588S octa-core Cortex-A76/A55 processor with up to 32GB RAM and 256GB eMMC flash.

The board is designed to be as thin as possible and includes a low-profile RJ45 Ethernet jack which should make it suitable for projects and products that require high performance in a thin form factor such as robotics, digital signage, virtual reality headsets, etc…

Low-profile RK3588S 8K SBC

Firefly will provide Android 12.0, Ubuntu, Debian 11, Buildroot, RTLinux, and Kylin Linux support for the Core-3588SG system-on-module and the AIO-3588SG SBC. It’s one of the thinnest Rockchip RK3588S SBC, albeit not quite as thin as the Khadas Edge2 which lacks Ethernet and a GPIO header, and also occupies a smaller area (82 x 57.5mm), but offers fewer I/Os. Firefly hasn’t shown a cooling solution yet although we can see mounting holes for a heatsink, and the Khadas Edge2 is only 11mm thick with a heatsink.

Firefly does not have availability and pricing information for the AIO-03588SG low-profile 8K SBC and the company only says “this product is still not available yet but you can buy it later in Firefly Store”. Additional information may be found on the product page.
