Allwinner T3 automotive-grade processor powers industrial-grade SoM

Allwinner T3 SOM TLT3

Allwinner T3 is a quad-core Cortex-A7 automotive-grade processor that supports a wide industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. After comparing the specifications of Allwinner T3, I think it is the same as Allwinner A40i, as Allwinner has different business units and the T-series is for the automotive-grade market, while the A-series has historically been for the tablet market, but is now also used in the industrial-grade market. Tronlong SOM-TLT3 and SOM-TLT3-B are Allwinner T3 system-on-modules (SoM) of Allwinner T3. Both modules have basically the same specifications but the SOM-TLT3 comes with castellated holes for soldering to the carrier board, while the SOM-TLT3-B features board-to-board connectors. Tronlong SOM-TLT3 / SOM-TLT3-B specifications: CPU – Allwinner T3 quad-core Arm Cortex-A7 @ 1.2 GHz with 32KB L1 I-cache + 32KB L1 D-cache, 512KB L2 cache. GPU – Arm Mali-400 MP2 with support for OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0, Open VG 1.1 Memory – 1/2GByte DDR3 […]

DongshanPI-D1s – An Allwinner D1s RISC-V development board designed to teach programming

The DongshanPI-D1s development board is comprised of a soldered-on Allwinner D1s RISC-V system-on-module board (SoM) and a carrier board with two 40-pin headers and a 2.0mm dedicated header. This development board is specifically designed to teach programming with a focus on the RISC-V architecture. The development board was designed by 100ask. They previously designed the Dongshan NeZha STU a development board based on the Allwinner D1. The main difference between the two is that 100ask did not include the Ethernet and HDMI interfaces on the DongshanPI-D1s board. The pinout of the headers is also slightly different because they opted to make the headers compatible with the widely used 40-pin GPIO from Raspberry Pi single board computers. DongshanPI-D1s preliminary specifications: D1s Core Lite SoC – Allwinner D1s single-core XuanTie C906 64-bit RISC-V processor @ 1.0 GHz with with 32 KB I-cache + 32 KB D-cache Memory – 64 MB DDR2 (SIP) […]

Miniature Raspberry Pi CM4 carrier board only exposes USB-C port and 40-pin GPIO header

Mirek Folejewski’s (aka Mirko Electronics) PicoBerry is an open-source hardware, miniature Raspberry Pi CM4 carrier board with just a USB Type-C port for power, a 40-pin Raspberry Pi GPIO header, and barely anything else. At just 70x20mm, the 2-layer board only adds a few LEDs, namely the ACT/PWR LEDS and two user LEDs, and supports any Raspberry Pi CM4 module with eMMC flash, but not the Raspberry Pi CM4 Lite since the board does not include a microSD card slot. PicoBerry specifications: Supported system-on-modules – Raspberry Pi CM4 with eMMC flash, and possibly compatible SoMs such as Radxa CM5 or Pine64 SoQuartz64 USB – USB Type-C for power Expansion – 40-pin GPIO header with the same layout as on Raspberry Pi 4 or other Pi boards with a 40-pin header Misc – ACT/PWR LEDs, 2x user LEDs ( Power Supply  – 5V DC/3A via USB-C port, Dimensions – 70x20mm (2-layer […]
