OKdo has announced the launch of the ROCK 5A board in partnership with Radxa.

The ROCK 5A is described as a powerful, versatile and easy-to-use single board computer (SBC) that has been designed to meet the demands of engineers, developers, educators, inventors and entrepreneurs. Starting February 1st, OKdo will offer discounted pricing for the newly announced series of boards; limited to the first 5,000 – details can be found via the company's website.

The ROCK 5A has taken the key functionality of its predecessor, the ROCK 5B, and fitted it on to the industry’s common SBC form factor. Some of its key features include 8k output, an octa-core processor and an AI accelerator. Additionally, it is currently the only SBC on the market in this form factor that comes with 16GB of memory.

The ROCK 5A will run Linux v5.10 Kernel, supporting Ubuntu, Debian, openFyde OS, Armbian, RebornOS, Android 12 and later. Customers can download the software from OKdo.com and find additional community support by leveraging the 1.5 million members of the DesignSpark community.

Operating at a professional grade, the combination of power, versatility and support makes the ROCK 5A a suitable option for embedded processes spanning EV charging, automatic manufacturing, digital signage and agricultural tech, according to OKdo.

“Since the launch of OKdo’s family of ROCK boards, the market has been responding very well in a variety of verticals including consumer, industrial and agriculture segments. I am thrilled to add yet another member to the ROCK family and anticipate fast adoption with new and existing customers. The ROCK 5A is the perfect blend of power, versatility and affordability,” said Richard Curtin, Co-Founder and CTO of OKdo.
