Development boards have been favourites for hobbyists and tinkerers alike. While boards like the Arduino UNO and the Raspberry Pi remain to be the crowd favourites, more powerful alternatives are available for those that require more hardware prowess. Allwinner has been quite active on that front, and it looks like the interest has far from dwindled.
The latest dev board that’s just announced is the H88 HummingBird, which is similar to the H8 but adds some extra grunt. Take a look at the specifications below:
- Allwinner A80 big.LITTLE 4x Cortex A15 + 4x Cortex A7 cores
- 4GB DDR3 RAM
- On-board GPS
- 8GB on-board storage, expandable by up to 32GB via microSD
- HDMI, VGA output
- 3.5mm headphone jack, line in
- IR receiver
- 2x USB 2.0 ports, 1x USB OTG port
Documentation and support for the H88 HummingBird (including sourec code) for Android v4.4.2 KitKat and Linux 3.4 is provided, but we’re not sure how good its going to be if you don’t speak Chinese.
