#1 Rockchip SOCs

Post by Dirk Broer »

Rockchip (in Chinese 瑞芯微电子, transliterated Ruì xīn wéi diànzǐ, which Google translate recognizes as 'Rockchip Microelectronics'), in full Fuzhou Rockchip Electronics Co., Ltd. (in Chinese 瑞芯微电子股份有限公司, transliterated Ruì xīn wéi diànzǐ gǔfèn yǒuxiàn gōngsī, which translates as 'Rockchip Microelectronics Co., Ltd.') is a Chinese fabless semiconductor company based in Fuzhou, Fujian province. Due to their evolution from the MP3/MP4 player chips most Rockchip SoCs feature media decoding logic, but lack integrated cellular radio basebands. Their products started to get interesting with the advent of the 40 nm multi-core RK3000 series and really kicked off once they got produced on 28 nm.

So far I have found one board that uses the RK3588, the Radxa Rock 5. It is not easy to get one -just as you can hardly buy a new Raspberry Pi 4.
There are three models (4, 8 and 16 GB) and you van pre-order them for $5 to get a $50 discount later at e.g. Ameridroid or Allnet. More information (such as the price) at Radxa themselves.

One warning for the too early adapters: You may want to search for an OS too, to be able to use the board....the page with downloadable Android or Linux images was still empty last time I checked (27 April 2022)

More RK3588 boards now:

The Firefly ITX-3588J, with obvious mini-iTX board format, 2/4/8/16/ -and optionally up to- 32GB of RAM and up to 128GB of eMMC.

Banana Pi with Rockchip RK3588 development Kit, with 2/4/8GB RAM and up to 128GB eMMC flash.

Turing Pi seems to plan a RK3588 module too for their Turing Pi 2 board, up to 32GB per module.
