Key benefits of the ROCK 3A single board computer

Reliable Rockchip SoC

ROCK 3A provides reliable and capable performance based on the Rockchip RK3568 SoC, Quad core Armv8.2‑A Cortex®‑A55 up to 2.0GHz, Arm Mali™ G52 GPU, and 32-bit LPDDR4 2GB RAM. You can be certain that despite its size the ROCK 3A will deliver outstanding performance.

0.8 TOPs NPU for AI applications

ROCK 3A benefits from an NPU with up to 0.8 TOPS for developing AI applications.

Handy Power On/Off button for safe shutdowns

How does the idea of shutting down your ROCK 3A at the touch of a button without the risk of corrupting storage sound? The ROCK 3A features a built-in On/Off power button meaning you can perform safe shutdowns by simply pressing a button. ROCK 3A offers this huge convenience as standard, allowing you to be flexible with your applications.

More OS, more options

ROCK 3A is extremely practical, as it is compatible with multiple operating systems, including Android 11, Debian/Ubuntu Linux, the full implementation of the Arm architecture v8‑A instructions set, and others.

No more storage limitations

ROCK 3A benefits from extensive storage capacity, including 32-bit LPDDR4 2GB RAM and a high-speed eMMC socket for eMMC modules which can be used for OS and data storage. The eMMC socket is compatible with readily available industrial pinout and form factor hardware.

Highly compatible with SBC accessories

The 40-pin header supports a wide range of interface options, providing the ROCK 3A with a plethora of connectivity capabilities ensuring compatibility with almost every accessory you could think of. Due to the dual functionality of many of the pins, the ROCK 3A opens the possibilities for advanced accessories, the world is your oyster!

Supports 4K60fps display
