ODROID-M1 with 4GB RAM (with 12V 2Amp Power Adapter)
The ODROID-M1 is a single board computer with a wide range of useful peripherals developed for use in a variety of embedded system applications. To achieve this goal, we have developed various hardware accessories and device driver software over the past 10 months. In addition, RK3568B2, the core brain of ODROID-M1, is considered suitable for embedded application use as the SoC manufacturer (Rockchip) guarantees supply for the next 15 years. Therefore, we expect we can supply the ODROID-M1 boards to our important B2B customers until the year 2036 or beyond.
Note that RK3568B2 is a slightly modified version of the RK3568 to overcome the IC supply chain problem these days. The previous RK3568 metal-can type packaging lead time is much longer than the more common plastic package of the RK3568B2.
Let’s take a look at the main features and peripherals of ODROID-M1.
|A||Rockchip RK3568B2 CPU||N||1 x Mono Speaker Output (1.3W at 8Ω load)|
|B||LPDDR4 RAM||O||1 x SPI recovery Switch|
|C||1 x Micro USB2.0 Device only||P||1 x SPI Flash 16MiB|
|D||1 x RJ45 Ethernet Port (10/100/1000)||Q||1 x eMMC Module Socket|
|E||1 x HDMI 2.0||R||1 x IR Receiver|
|F||2 x USB 2.0||S||1 x RTC Backup Battery Holder|
|G||2 x USB 3.0||T||1 x Reset jumper|
1 x Power jumper
|H||1 x DC Power Jack||U||1 x Micro SD Slot|
|I||1 x M.2 NVMe M-Key PCIe3.0 2-Lane||V||1 x SATA3|
|J||40 x GPIO Pins||W||1 x SATA Power (5volt only)|
|K||1 x MIPI CSI 2Lane||X||1 x UART for System Console|
|L||1 x MIPI DSI 4Lane||Y||2 x System LED Indicators|
|M||1 x 3.5mm Headphone Jack||Z||1 x M.2 LED Indicator|
The CPU has four ARM Cortex-A55 processors with low power consumption and high efficiency operation at 2Ghz. The CPU and GPU performance is quite similar to our ODROID-C4.
A larger 8GB of LPDDR4 DRAM Memory is available while there is also a 4GB model for reduced cost.
Petitboot pre-installed into the on-board 16MiB of SPI-Flash Memory helps manage various OS and kernel versions easily and supports booting from microSD, eMMC, NVMe, SATA, and USB storage devices. In addition, since on-line OS installation using a network is possible, the cumbersome procedure of downloading and flashing an OS image is dramatically reduced.
A standard size 22mm x 80mm M.2 NVMe storage device can be directly installed on the ODROID-M1 board. The M.2 connector has PCIe 3.0 2-lane configuration which can deliver a blazing fast 1600MB/sec of sequential access performance. Note that M.2 SATA storage devices can not be used. The M.2 slot supports only a PCIe interface (M-Key).
