Recently, the AllWinner A10 tipped up in the UPuter Pi, which is reportedly being marketed as some sort of Raspberry Pi “clone,” albeit with different hardware.
Designed by the Shanghai-based QuickEmbed Technology, the UPuter Pi runs at 1.5 GHz and is equipped with 512-1 GB DDR3 RAM, 4-8 GB Flash and ARM’s Mali400 graphic engine.
The UPuter Pi – which runs Android 4.0 and various Linux flavors – also features WiFi, a microUSB port, USB port and HDMI connector.
QuickEmbed is currently offering one iteration of the UPuter Pi without a case (bare PCBA), although another version of the UPuter will be available in the near future with a case.
“They do provide 6 GPIOs, UART and JTAG access which makes it an interesting hacker board,” Chiang Mai of CNXSOFT noted.
“However, at $69, the price is OK, but not really aggressive, especially as I’m expecting a $49 AllWinner A10 development board with features similar to the Mele A1000 plus an expansion header (GPIO, I2C, SPI…) very shortly, possibly as soon as next week.”
