About this project
Firefly and LoveRPi are working together to bring you the Firefly-RK3399 Single Board Computer: the world’s first PC-class open-source hardware platform based on 64-bit ARMv8 Cortex-A72/Cortex-A53 core designs. Fitted with 6 cores, up to 4GB DDR3, and onboard eMMC with up to 128GB storage, the performance of this single board computer is in a league all its own. Powered by the ARM Mali T-864 GPU, the RK3399 can drive 4K Ultra-HD streams and games via USB Type C DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0. Onboard Gigabit Ethernet, Dual Band 802.11AC WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.1 makes connectivity effortless. It is engineered for Virtual Reality, 4K and Panoramic Photo and Video Capture, Computer Vision, 3D Rendering, Gaming, Low Power Server, and many more cutting-edge applications!
High Performance Hexa-Core 64-bit ARMv8 Dynamic Execution Processor
Powered by Rockchip’s RK3399 SoC with dual 2.0GHz CPU clusters, one cluster houses two Cortex-A72 high-performance cores and another cluster contains four Cortex-A53 cores.The new cores can deliver up to 100% performance improvement compared to previous Cortex-A15/A17/A57 core designs.
4K Capable Quad-Core ARM Mali GPU with OpenCL
ARM Mali-T864 GPU supports many of the latest API standards such as OpenGL ES 1.0/2.0/3.0/3.1, OpenVG 1.1, OpenCL 1.2, and DirectX 11 while performing 50% faster than the previous generation Mali-T628 GPU. This powerful GPU makes many applications practical such as computer vision, machine learning, and 4K 3D rendering. Integrated hardware decoding fully supports VP9, H.265 HEVC, and H.264 4K HDR encoded content.
GPU Acceleration under Ubuntu
Silky Smooth 3D Android Gaming
Dual 8MP/4K Camera Input and Integrated Signal Processing
Two MIPI-CSI interfaces and Integrated Signal Processors can capture and processes up to 800 Megapixels per Second. Simultaneously processes two input streams for panoramic shots, gesture detection, depth mapping, 3D videos, and other computer vision applications. Note: H.264 encoder supports up to 1080P.
Firefly-RK3399 supports a variety of accessories, such as SSD read and write, 3D cameras, 7.85-inch touch screen and so on.
Mini PCI-Express Slot, NGFF M.2 PCI-Express Slot with 9 Types of Interface Expansion
Four lanes of PCI-Express across the industry-standard Mini PCIe Slot and M.2 Slot enables high-bandwidth expansion for the RK3399 such as 802.11AD WiFi cards and SSD storage expansion. Optional 4G LTE module enables remote IoT capabilities. The possibilities are truly endless.
Two Dedicated USB 3.0 Channels with Type A and Type C
Connect a plethora of USB peripherals via the 5.0Gbps USB 3.0 ports with support for Alternative Mode Functional Extension DisplayPort capability via Type C. It is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 ports found in other platforms. Plug and play additional off-the-shelf peripherals and hubs and use it like a normal computer!
4K Ultra-HD Display Interfaces, MIPI-DSI Interface, eDP Interface with PSR
The versatile RK3399 can drive two displays among four high-performance display interfaces. Full-size HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort Capable USB Type C ports populate the edges of the board along with an eDP connector. The MIPI-DSI interface rests underneath the board. This flexibility enables applications such as VR, Gaming System, Home Theater, Desktop Computer, Digital Signage, and many other high-end applications!
Dual dispaly for different content
Latest Android 6.0 and Ubuntu 16.04 Linux Support
Utilize existing software and application stacks on the latest Android Marshmallow and Ubuntu Linux kernels to rapidly develop new products, services, and systems.
Rich IO Interfaces
In addition to HDMI 2.0, MIPI-CSI, MIPI-DSI, PCI-Express, M.2, DP 1.2, eDP, and USB3.0 interfaces, a 42 pin female header offers 8-channel I2S, ADC, I2C, SPI/UART, GPIO, LINEOUT, and SPEAKER pins for expansive audio capability, breadboard development, sensor interfacing, and hardware debugging.
This flexible open-source hardware platform is the beginning of a new generation of cutting-edge products. Get started with this truly innovative board today and back this Kickstarter!
