It seems that the SoC Rockchip RK3399 is not having too much success in the market of TV-Box, where we have seen few equipment, but surely after striking the ball with the Samsung Chromebook Plus Rockchip also in no hurry to place their new SoC and this to see them coming MECOOL VS – RK3399 is a development PCB that includes this SoC and that also has an enormous amount of connections.
The MECOOL VS-RK3399 board is powered by SoC RK3399, a Hexa Core that integrates a cluster with two ARM Cortex-A72 processors capable of reaching the 2.0Ghz and another cluster with four ARM Cortex-A53 processors. At the GPU level it has a Mali-T860mp4 with support for codecs decoding H.26 / H.264 and VP9 4K @ 60fps among others. We also have 2/4GB of DDR3 RAM, 16/32GB eMMc storage memory, Dual Band Wifi aC (AP6356S) and Bluetooth 4.1. At the connectivity level we find a Gigabit network connector, HDMI 2.0 video outputs, DP 1.2, MIPI and eDP 1.3. Among the other available interfaces we will highlight a miniPCIe, a USB 3.0, a USB Type-C, the 42-pin connector and the dual MIPI-CSI connector with dual DSP that allows us to connect two cameras.
At the operating system level it seems that we have Android 7.1.2 and Devian (surely compatible with the Firefly board that includes the same SoC) and seems to include a simple box with a pair of PVC sheets and external antennas and a control distance IR.
