CubieAIO-A20 is open source All In One Mini embedded computer especially targets many Android & Linux industry applications. This device integrates all the computer’s features and interfaces in a very small size, even including host, display and touch panel. It can be used as an end product for a lot of computing and controlling applications across all industries. Because of its open source strategy, people can use it as a development board, get all the source code, documents, and also can discuss the technical issues in the forums. But beyond that, most of the innovative projects can be easily achieved based on it, since CubieAIO-A20’s main board is designed with a small computing module which named Einstein-A20. Einstein-A20 is a independent marketable product in CubieTech company, to this point, CubieAIO-A20 is actually a official design example for the computing module users. We hope the developers to list their products in short time with the aid of this design solution.
Property: Software open source, Hardware open
Owner: CubieTech Limited
Chipset: Allwinner A20, ARM architecture CotexA7, dual core
System: Android, Debian, Ubuntu and many other open source distribution…
Target: Developers, Geeks, Makers, Scholars, Students, Terminal Users, Start-up Companies…
CubieBoard is open source hardware which is easy to use open source hardware/development board that suit for Students, Developers, Geeks, Makers…The design intention is not only easy to develop, but also easy to use. CubieAIO-A20 is the 3rd type product in Cubieboard series from Cubietech Limited company. During operating period of Cubieboard2 and CubieBoard3, we found that Allwinner’s A20 chipset is really a very good SOC for open source hardware and development board requirements. So we decided to design a new board form for providing more powerful features, more convenient mass production and more effective terminal use. CubieAIO-A20 is a new board model adopts with Allwinner A20 SOC and based on core-board structure. The core-board is named Einstein-A20 and can be sold individually. It’s a very easy to use and low cost product. In order to make it’s clear to use, we decided to make a full-scale application design example for it. So that the users no longer need to read too many documents. If they have project and decide to choose Einstein-A20 module, most of the project features are all ready and just do some cutting works. So the project listing time will become very short.
Besides that, we also reserve lots of expansion ports and pins on CubieAIO-A20, such as SPI, I2C MIPI, I2S, UART, PWM, ADC, CCIR656 and GPIO. The powerful expansion capacity makes the CubieAIO-A20 a excellent development board. The new features can be easily to achieved, new devices and modules can be driven up. So we can say CubieAIO-A20 is also incubation platform for innovative works.
Thirdly, since low cost, low power, high stability and flexible customization properties of embedded system, the X86 computers used in many industries tend to be replaced by embedded computer. CubieAIO is a very good choice in numerous embedded because of the firm and durable metal case, host & display all-in-one design structure. We believe that CubieAIO-A20 will simplify many managing and controlling applications in various industries. Those are CubieAIO’s product design motivations.
The CubieAIO-A20 device contains a CubieAIO-A20 main board, a 5V@4A wall adapter, a Type-B USB device cable, a telescopic antenna for Wifi & Bluetooth, and connector terminals for expanding the UART and GPIO signals.CubieAIO-A20 integrates 7 inch LCD display with 1024*600 pixels and the matching touch panel. So in the most application occasions, we don’t need to connect a display any more, it will save a significant cost and also save lots of space.
It has 6 USB host ports, 1 USB OTG port, 1 earphone & Micin port, a micro SD card slot, HDMI display port, a 100/1000M RJ45 port, a IR receiver sensor, two onboard Leds, a buzzer for abnormal reminder. It supports 3G/4G mini-PCIE data communication module. Since the onboard mini-PCIE SATA port, CubieAIO-A20 supports MSATA SSD for storage capacity expansion. The board includes 3 keys for power On/Off, Reset and Reflash the ROM/image. Beside those, CubieAIO-A20 also has lots of expansion Pins for development, so it a very good development board as well for some unknown features.
It is a famous open source hardware. Many open source organizations will support CubieAIO-A20, such as Android, Unbuntu, Fedora, Dabian, openWrt and so on.
CubieAIO-A20 is not only for development, but also can be used in various areas like other Mini Pc products. Thanks to its rich interfaces, low costs, and good open source support ambient, more and more developers can benefit based on it and would like to do lots of promotion work for it.
It’s famous open source hardware, Cubietech official team will continully maintain Android, Debian, and Debian Server operating systems. Many other open source distribution would support it as well.
