Your own Rock64-based private multimedia centre
The Rock64 microcomputer has a powerful RockChip RK3399 processor, a six-core CPU with two 2 GHz ARM Cortex-A72 cores and four 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores. Moreover, we have the possibility to use fast communication interfaces - USB 3.0 and Ethernet ports. The microcomputer's capabilities package extends the RAM memory to 4 GB. A very big advantage of the microcomputer from Pine64 is the presence of HDMI port, which shows the ability to play high-quality 4K video. This is a quality characterized by above-average detail, perfect color reproduction, as well as high image clarity. This is why Rock64 is used in the design and creation of advanced media players. However, this is not all that will allow you to create your entertainment center in your home. Choosing the most advanced version of Rock64, you also get standard USB 2.0 ports and a microSD card slot. You have audio output on a 3.5 mm miniature and interfaces: CSI, DSI and eDP. You should also know that Rock64 is compatible with the Raspberry Pi dedicated overlays. However, its capabilities are much greater, as there is also a PCI Express x4 port in the board, which allows us to connect expansion cards. All this makes the microcomputer from Pine 64 can be both an extensive multimedia center, as well as a system designed to control intelligent lighting or an electric motor responsible for garage door operation.
Compatible with Raspberry Pi modules
The iconic Raspberry has a huge group of fans all over the world. As a result, manufacturers offer them great opportunities to expand with new modules. Pine64 single-board computers are designed to work seamlessly with them. Thus, the scope of use of Rock64 is extended. This is possible due to the same port layout, which allows the use of multiple enclosures and other components that are designed for Raspberry Pi. Among the proposed enclosure models is both timeless universal classics, as well as outstanding elegance. Extra hardware can be connected to your computer via a 40-pin GPIO connector. The board communicates with HAT modules and other components via I2C, UART and SPI interface signals. Access to interface signals such as S/PDIF and I2S is provided by a 22-pin Pi P5+ Bus connector to connect external ADCs and DACs. In addition, the Rock64 single disc computer is designed to connect eMMC solid-state memory modules. This is a more convenient alternative to microSD cards. It is faster memory, as well as memory cells with increased resistance to wear.
