Firefly ITX3588J mini-ITX motherboard with Rockchip RK3588 SoC now has a little

Firefly ITX3588J mini-ITX motherboard with Rockchip RK3588 SoC now has a little sister/brother based on Rockchip RK3568 quad-core Cortex-A55 processor called ITX-3568JQ, and designed to power Arm PCs, cloud terminals, industrial controllers, edge computers, advanced NVR, NAS devices, and more.

The motherboard supports up to 8GB RAM, 128GB eMMC flash, offers SATA storage, dual Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 6, optional 4G or 5G cellular connectivity, can handle up to three independent displays, and offers plenty of I/O options including an RS232/RS485 DB9 connector and a PCIe slot.

Firefly ITX-3568JQ specifications:

Firefly will provide support for Android 11.0, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04 and RTLinux, but the Wiki is currently empty. The mini-ITX motherboard is actually fitted with a Rockchip RK3568J system-on-module, which must be a different package than the original RK3568, just like RK3568B2 found in ODROID-M1.

The motherboard layout is quite different from the Rockchip RK3588-based ITX-3588J mini-ITX motherboard, and instead of using an MXM connector for the system-on-module, the company went with board-to-board connectors instead. The ITX3568JQ board may also be better suited to a wider range of industrial applications with a -40°C to 85°C operating temperature range instead of just -20°C to 60°C for the RK3588 board.

The ITX-3568JQ motherboard can be purchased for $339 and up on Firefly shop. More details may be found on the product page.
