“The Rock Pi S is a single-board computer(SBC) that equips an RK3308 Rockchip by Radxa. It is assembled by a 64bits quad-core processor, USB, ethernet and voice detection engine at the size of 1.7 inches. The Rock Pi S is suitable for voice applications and some IoT projects. What ‘s more? The Rock Pi S has a 26-pin expansion header which includes 4 I2C interfaces, 3 PWM interfaces, 2 SPI interfaces, 3 UART interfaces, and one I2SO interface.”
“All these functional interfaces can be embedded into 1.7 inches tinny Pi. This little board is able to support Debian system successfully, and there are wifi and blue tooth module on this board as well. It is a good idea to develop this board into a central controller of the media center with a tiny size and attractive price.”
