Powerful, Versatile and compact board supports multiple options for display multimedia.

Utilizing the RockChip RK3288 quad core processor, this powerful, multimedia display engine offers high performance in a compact form factor.

A versatile board for digital multimedia applications, the Orion RK3288, is available from Review Display Systems (RDS).

Designed for high-performance embedded displays, it supports eDP (embedded Display Port), HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface). The eDP interface, for LCD use, is available with one, two or four lanes (6bit, 8bit and 10bit respectively).

The Orion RK3288 uses the RockChip RK3288 quad core processor. This low power, high- performance processor integrates the quad core ARM Cortex-A17, which has separate NEON architecture and FPU (Floating Point Unit) coprocessor.

The RK3288 processor supports H.265 decoder (2160pixels at 60 frames per second), an H.264 decoder (2160pixels at 24 frames per second) and also an H.264/MCV/VP8 encoder(1080pixels at 30 frames per second). It also supports high-quality JPEG encoder/decoder and a special image pre- and post-processor.

The embedded 3D GPU (Graphics Processor Unit), the ARM Mali T764, ensures compatibility with OpenGL ES1.1, 2.0 or 3.0, OpenCL 1.1 and DirectX 11 libraries for graphics rendering.

A 2D hardware engine with MMU (Memory Management Unit) will not only maximise the performance of the display, but will also provide smooth operation.

In addition to 2 GByte eMMC (embedded Multi Media Controller) memory, there is 2 GByte DDR3 (Double Data Rate) memory.The high-performance, dual-channel, external memory interface (DDR3, DDR3L, LPDDR2 (Low Power Double Data Rate), or LPDDR3) meets the memory-intensive demands of mobile phones and mobile Internet devices and digital multimedia applications, and sustains the bandwidth requirements.

Peripheral support includes a dual-channel TFT LCD interface with four layers for maximum display size, a four-port USB, (two external and two internal), a MicroSD/SDHC slot, a MicroUSB OTG port, a camera interface and keypad interface, an IR remote control interface and an optional I²C interface for touch capability.

The board meets IEEE802.3 10/100/1000Mbit per sec with Twisted Pair and IEEE802.11b/g/n WiFi with Bluetooth.

Board dimensions are 150 x 110 x 20mm and operating temperature is 0 to +50°C. Input is a 12V DC power adapter or optional SMPS (Switch-Mode Power Supply).
