ROCK PI E SBC FEATURES ROCKCHIP RK3328, WITH 64BITS QUAD CORE PROCESSOR

In the past, we have seen some Rockchip boards from Radxa, like the Rock pi N10(RK3399Pro) and the Rock PiS powered by the RK3308 Cortex-A35 processor. Now, Radxa has launched a Rock Pi E SBC, which is a Rockchip RK3328 based SBC.

ROCK PI E SBC FEATURES ROCKCHIP RK3328, WITH 64BITS QUAD CORE PROCESSOR

It is equipped with a 64bits quad core processor, USB 3.0, dual ethernet, wireless connectivity at the size of 2.5×2.2 inch (56x65mm), making it perfect for IoT and network applications. ROCK Pi E comes in various ram sizes from 512MB to 4GB DDR3, and uses uSD card for OS and storage as well as supporting eMMC module. Optionally, ROCK Pi E supports PoE, additional HAT is required. The SBC that is similar to the ROCK Pi E in the market, is the NanoPi R2S dual Gigabit Ethernet SBC from FriendlyElec, which is powered by Rockchip RK3328 SBC. The major difference between the two SBC is that Rock Pi E is equipped with one Gigabit Ethernet port, a USB 3.0 port, a built-in WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity which is unavailable on the NanoPi R2S.

The following are specifications of Rock Pi E:

  • SoC – Rockchip RK3328  quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 processor @ up to 1.3 GHz
  • System Memory – 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, or  2GB DDR3
  • Storage – MicroSD card slot up to 128GB, eMMC module support ( 16GB / 32GB / 64GB / 128GB)
