The latest ROCK 5 Series board is here, the ROCK 5 Model A (ROCK 5A). ROCK 5A is a credit-card sized Single Board Computer (SBC) packed with class‑leading functionality, incredible features, and expansion options. If you require an extremely highly specified platform with outstanding performance and reliability in a compact form factor, then the ROCK 5A is an ideal choice.
Reliable Rockchip SoC
At the heart of our ROCK single board computers you’ll find a Rockchip SoC. The ROCK 5A features a powerful Rockchip RK3588S SoC with an octa-core CPU. The quad Cortex A76 runs up to 2.4GHz and the quad Cortex A55 runs up to 1.8GHz, making the ROCK 5A not only reliable, but fast! Not only that, but it also features an Arm Mali™ G610MC4 GPU supporting OpenGL®, OpenCL®, and Vulkan®.
Safe shutdowns, as standard
We know that you don’t want to risk corrupting storage, that’s why we’ve ensured the ROCK 5A features a built-in On/Off power button meaning you can perform safe shutdowns at the touch of a button eliminating the risk of corrupting storage. ROCK 5A offers this huge convenience as standard, allowing you to be flexible with your applications. Say goodbye to typing code into the command line to safely shut down your single board computer!
Unrivalled 8K display
ROCK 5A features an awesome Arm Mali G610MC4 graphics processing unit (GPU), making this board perfect for supporting advanced multimedia applications, such as signage, games, and the option to play 8K videos and output 8Kp60 through HDMI 2.1, it also offers a powerful 6TOPS NPU ideal for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning applications.
More OS, more options
ROCK 5A is a super practical little board, compatible with a range of operating systems, including Android 12, Debian/Ubuntu Linux, OpenFyde OS (Chromium OS fork), the full implementation of the Arm architecture v8 instructions set, and others.
No storage limitations
ROCK 5A benefits from extensive storage capacity, 8GB 64bits LPDDR4x RAM, and a high-speed eMMC socket for eMMC modules which can be used for OS and data storage.
Keep cool, and ROCK on!
The ROCK 5A has a 2pin 1.25mm header perfect for connecting a 5V fan. The fan can be PWM controlled without speed feedback. No matter how demanding your application is you can be sure the ROCK 5A will deliver excellent performance. It’s a board you can rely on, and we think that’s pretty cool!
