  • ASUS Tinker Board is a Raspberry Pi 3 Alternative based on Rockchip RK3288 Processor (CNXSoft)

    Regular readers may remember MQMaker MiQi board, a $35 (and up) development board powered by Rockchip RK3388 quad core ARM Cortex A17 processor, based on Raspberry Pi 3 form factor, but much faster according to benchmarks. Sadly, the board’s crowdfunding campaign was not that successful, possibly because of the “its’ a 2-year old processor” syndrome. But now, Minimachines has found that Acer has doing a very similar board, dubbed Tinker Board, with an extra WiFi and Bluetooth LE module, audio jack, MIPI DSI connector, and a few other modifications.

    Asus Tinker Board specifications (bold highlights and strike-through show differences with MiQi board):
    • SoC – Rockchip 3288 quad core ARM Cortex A17 up to 1.8 GHz with Mali-T764 GPU supporting OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0 /3.0, and OpenCL 1.1
    • System Memory – 2GB LPDDR3, dual channel
    • Storage – 8 or 32 GB eMMC flash + micro SD slot
    • Video output & Display I/F
      • 1x HDMI 2.0 up to 3840×2160@60p
      • 1x 15-pin MIPI DSI supporting HD resolution
    • Audio – 1x 3.5mm audio jack; Realtek HD codec with 192KHz/24-bit audio
    • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 + EDR
    • USB – 4x USB 2.0 host ports, 1x micro USB port (for power)
    • Expansion Headers
      • 40-pin “somewhat Raspberry Pi compatible” header with up to 28x GPIOs, 2x SPI, 2x I2C, 4x UART, 2x PWM, 1x PCM/I2S, 5V, 3.3V, and GND
      • 2-pin contact point with 1x PWM signal, 1x S/PDIF signal
    • Misc – Button, unpopulated fan header
    • Power Supply – 5V/2A via micro USB port
    • Dimensions – 85.6 x 54 cm

    The company targets education, maker, and IoT markets for the board, with applications ranging from mini PC to portable game console and RC products like drones. The board supports Debian with Kodi.

    asus-tinker-board-vs-raspberry-pi-3
    ASUS also provided a quick comparison table with Raspberry Pi 3 model B, that mostly shows the advantages over the Tinker board. The table is mostly fine, and I got some Phoronix benchmarks showing RK3288 can be about three times as fast as BCM2837 processor for FLAC audio encoding. The last row with officially supported OS appears to show both boards on the same footings, but Raspberry Pi 3 model B will have a clear advantage here, although I’m not sure why Asus did not list Android OS support for their board. The table does not include any price information either.

    The only information I could find was from the Slideshare presentation above, and there does not appear to be any official website or page on Asus website.

    Thanks to Freire for the tip.

  • RJCLIP Repairs Ethernet RJ45 Clips in Seconds (CNXsoft)
    trebor
    Ethernet cables are normally made of RJ45 (8P8C) connectors that come with a clip that helps keeping the cables in place. However, over the years, I’ve broken a few of those, and the solution is normally to cut the cable, and replacing the broken RJ45 connector with a new one using a crimping tool and a cable tester (or multimeter). This does the job put normally takes a few minutes of your time, or more if you’ve messed up the connection the first time. I’ve just come accross an alternative solution...

    trebor
    Many TV boxes cannot play videos with Dolby Digital (AC3 ) audio because they lack the license, except if you use software like Kodi that downmixes the audio, but most apps won’t, and MX Player developers had to remove AC3 support from the Android app previously. But based on a forum post by Popcorn Hour, Dolby Digital AC3 US patent (that one?) has expired at the beginning of this month, so they can legally enable AC3 downmixing in their TV box that previously lacked the license including Popcorn...
