ECS RK3568-IS 3.5-inch SBC with Rockchip RK3568 SoC showcased at COMPUTEX 2023

ECS is better known for its LIVA mini PCs and x86 motherboards, but ECSIPC unveiled a 3.5-inch SBC powered by Rockchip RK3568 Arm SoC at Embedded World 2023. However, when I asked for photos or detailed specifications at the time, I was told by a company representative no further details were available.

But we now have more information as the company is showcasing the RK3568-IS 3.5-inch SBC at COMPUTEX 2023, and I received some photos from their booth.

RK3568-IS specifications

There’s no information about software support in the specs sheet above, but the Embedded World announcement mentioned Android OS for app and service deployment. There’s still no product page on the company website and we don’t have availability information for the first Arm SBC from ECS/ECSIPC.

Thanks to TLS for the photos.

Supposedly the thing only suppoarts what Rockchips support, plus Windows IoT.

Whoa, 30. Looks like they’re quite serious. Let’s look how the pricing when they launch the board. IMO, it’ll be quite steep a price.
