Quartz64 Model B mini PC
“The Quartz64 model B SBC featuring the Rockchip RK3566 SoC in smaller PCB form factor. This SoC combines a quad-core, ARM Cortex-A55 CPU with a Mali-G52-2EE GPU. It is capable of driving a single 4K display at 60fps and the GPU uses the open source Panfrost driver. It also has the benefit of running very cool, even without a heatsink and under a sustained load.
This SBC is equipped with 4GB LPDDR4 system memory, an optional eMMC module (up to 128GB) and microSD slot for booting. The board is equipped with a Wifi/BT with flex antenna, miniPCIe slot, 1x USB 3.0 type C Host, 2x USB 2.0 Host, Gigabit Ethernet, MiPi DSI 2-lanes interface, MiPi CSI 2-lanes interface, as well as many other peripheral device interfaces such as UART, SPI, I2C, for makers to integrate with sensors and other peripherals.”
The Quartz64 Model B mini PC is now available to purchase priced at $60 from the Pine64 online store.
