A new Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has been started by hardware manufacturers Libre Computer, to raise funds to take their new ARM mini PC into production. The small Raspberry Pi style mini PC is available with 1,2 or 4 GB of DDR 4 RAM and is equipped with a quad-core 64-bit ARM processor USB 3.0 connections and Gigabit Ethernet. The supported by 1GB of RAM version iOS priced at $35, while the 2 GB version is priced at $45 and the 4 GB version is a little more expensive at $70. Both of which support mainline Linux and Android 7.1 Nougat operating systems. Libre Computer explain more about their new mini PC.
Renegade is our first board to feature DDR4 technology, USB 3.0 capability, and Gigabit Ethernet. This modern and powerful platform shares the same form factor as the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B minus one USB port. It features both mainline Linux and Android 7.1 Nougat Support. Like all of our boards, it is designed completely with open-market components.
The Libre Computer Project is a brand rather than a manufacturer. We carefully select manufacturing partners and designs to make sure that the platform as a whole will meet our requirements for open-source support and maintenance. We shy away from proprietary interfaces, vendor lock-in, and “secret saucy” magic because we feel strongly that those things are only redundancies hindering progress.
We are expanding our lineup to cover popular solutions in use today. We want to continue to simplify education, accelerate product development, and facilitate the inception of other technologies. Reducing barriers to entry is part of our mission.
Together with our partners, it is our goal to provide reliable and long-term supported platforms that you can depend on to create even more innovative products and services. We are open to cooperative ventures with companies willing to offer the same level of care and attention to their products throughout its lifecycle.
