NanoPC T3 Single Board Computer

Product Introduction

The NanoPC-T3 octa-core single board computer is designed and developed by FriendlyARM Company. It uses the Samsung Octa-Core Cortex-A53 S5P6818 SoC. Compared to the NanoPC-T2 the NanoPC-T3 its equipped with additional interfaces and ports, along with a more powerful SoC. Its dynamic frequency scales from 400M up to 1.4GHz. The NanoPC-T3 has 8G eMMC on-board flash, audio jack, video input/output interfaces, built-in WiFi, Bluetooth and Gbps Ethernet port. In addition, the NanoPC-T3 has power management, on board porcelain antenna and serial debug port. To avoid overheat issues the NanoPC-T3 has a heat sink with mounting holes for max clamping and optimal heat conductivity.

It has two camera interfaces: a DVP camera interface and a MIPI-CSI interface, and four video interfaces: HDMI 1.4A, LVDS, parallel RGB-LCD interface and MIPI-DSI interface. It supports RTC and has RTC interface pins. It has four USB ports with two being type A ports and two being 2.54 mm pitch pin-headers. the board  NanoPC-T3 supports popular OS systems such as Android 5.1, Debian and Ubuntu trough open source community and company support forum.
