CubieAIO-S500 board is a part of CubieAIO-S500 whole device. People usually will buy it since they don’t need the LCD display, touch panel and the case. So most of the product description of CubieAIO board is the same with CubieAIO-S500.
CubieAIO-S500 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, 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. Beyond that, most of the innovative projects can be easily achieved based on it, since CubieAIO-S500’s main board is designed with a small computing module which named Einstein-S500. Einstein-S500 is a independent marketable product in CubieTech company, from this point of view, CubieAIO-S500 is actually a CubieTech official design reference example for the computing module users. We hope the developers to list their products in very short time with the aid of this SOM solution.
Name: CubieAIO-S500 main board
Property: Software open source, Hardware open
Owner: CubieTech Limited
Chipset: Actions S500, ARM architecture Cotex-A9, Quad-core
System: Android, Debian, 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-S500 is the 3rd type product in CubieBoard series from Cubietech Limited company. After CubieBoard6 operating, we found that Actions’s S500 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-S500 is a new board model adopts with Actions S500 SOC and based on core-board structure.
The core-board is named Einstein-S500 and can be sold individually. It’s a very easy to use and low cost product. In order to make it’s easy 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-S500 module, most of the project features are all ready and just do the deleting and cutting works. So the product listing time will become very short.
Besides that, we also reserve lots of expansion ports and pins on CubieAIO-S500 board , such as SPI, I2C MIPI, UART, PWM, ADC and GPIO. The powerful expansion capacity makes the CubieAIO-S500 to be a excellent development board. The new features can be easily to achieved, new devices and modules can be driven up as well. So we can say CubieAIO-S500 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-S500 will simplify many managing and controlling applications in various industries. Those are also CubieAIO’s product design motivations.
The CubieAIO-S500 main board standard package contains a CubieAIO-S500 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-S500 can also support 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 device port, 1 earphone & Mic-In port, a micro SD card slot, HDMI display port, a 10M/100M 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-S500 supports MSATA SSD for storage capacity expansion. The board includes 3 keys for power On/Off, Reset and Reflash the ROM/image.
Many open source organizations will support CubieAIO-S500, such as Android, Unbuntu, Fedora, Debian, openWrt and so on.
