Allwinner H6 VC200

Allwinner H6 SoC has been around a few years, first used exclusively in Zidoo H6 Pro TV box, but then finding its way into other TV boxes, and some single board computers such as Orange Pi 3 or Pine H64 model B.

There's no a cost-down version called Allwinner H6 VC200-OS with most of the same features but without the mostly useless PCIe port (since it does not work well on H6), and other interfaces.

I’ve gone through Allwinner H6 (V200) specifications and highlighted the ones missing or updated in H6 VC200-OS using stricken bold or bold text using information from the datasheet.

The datasheet also confirms the processor is made for 4K set-top boxes. Some of the differences may be due to missing information in the datasheet, but it looks like beside the PCIe interface, Gigabit Ethernet is gone, as well as camera support, the TS interface for tuners, and the RGB LCD interface.

The package remains unchanged which means Allwinner H6 CV200-OS is pin-to-pin compatible with Allwinner H6, and one can expect some manufacturers to replace H6 V200 with H6 CV200-OS without informing their customers. They can only do so on boxes with Fast Ethernet though.

As industry insider explained CNX Software that Allwinner H6 CV200-OS has been designed to compete in China Telco OTT market with some Android media player company using the new chip to lower their BoM costs. We were also informed that H6 die is too big to compete in the low-end market, so Allwinner is working on H3P SoC to address this segment.

I could not find TV boxes with the new processor yet, but the processor itself is listed on Aliexpress for around $16.

Jean-Luc started CNX Software in 2010 as a part-time endeavor, before quitting his job as a software engineering manager, and starting to write daily news, and reviews full time later in 2011.
