and output. It also supports various operating systems. This core board can be used in ARM PC,
edge computing, cloud server, smart NVR and other fields.

A new generation of high-end processor RK3588

RK3588 is Rockchip's new-gen flagship high-end processor with 8nm lithography process. With octa-core 64-bit CPU, its frequency is
up to 2.4GHz. Integrated with ARM Mali-G610 MP4 quad-core GPU and built-in AI accelerator NPU, it provides 6Tops computing power
and supports mainstream deep learning frameworks. The powerful RK3588 can deliver more powerful performance in various AI
application scenarios.

8K video encoding and decoding

The core board supports 8K@60fps H.265/VP9 video decoding and 8K@30fps H.265/H.264 video encoding. It also supports
encoding and decoding simultaneously — up to 32-channel 1080P@30fps decoding and 16-channel 1080P@30fps encoding can
be achieved. The strong video encoding and decoding capability makes 8K HD display and delicate picture quality available.

Super-large 32GB RAM

Up to 32GB of super-large RAM can be configured, which exceeds the limit of the previous RAM and speeds up response time. It can
meet the application requirements of products with large RAM and large storage.

Multi-channel input and output

With HDMI 2.1/eDP1.3/MIPI-DSI/DP1.4/BT.1120 multi-channel video output and HDMI RX2.0/MIPI-CSI/DVP video input
interfaces, it supports multi-channel 8K video output and 4K video input — up to seven-screen output with different
displays can be achieved. The integrated 48MP ISP with HDR&3DNR supports dual MIPI-CSI camera input.

Strong network communication capability

Integrated with PCIe3.0/GMAC/SDIO3.0/USB3.0, it can be extended to multi-channel Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 6/Bluetooth, 5G/4G LTE,
enabling high-speed network communication.

Multiple hard disks, massive capacity

Integrated with PCIe3.0/SATA3.0, it can connect multiple SSD/HDD mass storage devices, making it a reality
that the device can be easily expanded with TB storage capacity.

Firm and tight BTB port

The core board is equipped with high-speed industrial-grade connector, which is reliable and stable. BTB port, its connection is
tight and firm — it is more convenient to connect to the backplane.

Extensive connectivity

PCIE3.0, SATA3.0, I2S, I2C, CAN, UART, SPDIF, SDIO3.0, MIPI-CSI, MIPI-DSI, USB3.0, USB2.0, SPI and GPIO are provided.

Provide backplane reference design

Backplane reference design and complete technical information are provided, so users can efficiently proceed secondary development
to quickly create independent and controllable products.

Support various operating systems

Android 12.0, Ubuntu Desktop version and Server version, Debian11, Buildroot, Kylin and UOS are supported. And it also supports
RTLinux, delivering excellent real-time performance. UEFI Boot is available. The stable and reliable operation provides a safe and
stable system environment for product research and production.

Abundant resources

SDK, tutorials, tech docs and dev tools are provided, making development simpler and more convenient.

A wide range of applications

The core board can be used in ARM PC, edge computing, cloud server, smart NVR, smart video wall, AR/VR, smart car and other fields.
