PINE64 is the most versatile single board computer and is the ideal start of your next project. Whether it’s a computer, tablet, gaming device, media player or just about anything else you can think of, the PINE64 is the way to go. Because of the open source platform from both hardware to software the PINE64 carries limitless possibilities, especially when considering the price. It’s the most affordable 64-Bit computing solution and it’s capable of running today’s most advanced 64-Bit versions of Android and Linux. The PINE64 is developed to work with multiple modules and software and is backed by over 36.000 people on Kickstarter, raising more than 1.7 million dollars.
The PINE64 contains a powerful 1.2 Ghz Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit processor with NEON Multimedia processing engine and 64 and 32 Bit execution states for scalable high performance power. The PINE is also capable of producing stunning graphics thanks to its Dual-Core Mali 400-MP2 GPU, it even provides almost full motion playback of up to 4K H.265 high-definition video through its HDMI port.
There is no memory shortage on the PINE64 either, it comes with 2GB DDR3 Memory integrated and supports storage space up to 256GB via its Micro SD slot. A wide range of connectivity interfaces also makes for an endless amount of accessory options. These consist of two USB 2.0 slots, one HDMI port with Multi-Channel audio support, a Gigabit Ethernet port, 802.11BGN Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 3.5mm Stereo Output mini-jack with microphone support and many more. The PINE64 also delivers hardware security features that enable trustzone security system, DRM, information encryption/decryption, secure boot, secure JTAG and secure efuse.
Other interesting features are: two I/O Expansion slots, a parallel CMOS sensor, SPI interface, UART interface, I2C interface, Real-Time Clock capability, 3.7V Lithium battery charging circuit, 5MP camera port, 4 lanes MIPI video port and a touch panel port. The PINE64 is being shipped with an ABS Enclosure, 16GB SD card with Android 5.1 pre-installed and a 220V power adapter so it’s immediately ready for use.
