The VIM3 SBC is the latest iteration of the popular Khadas VIM series, that will be equipped with the new Amlogic S922X SoC. It is designed with the same form-factor as our popular VIM2 and VIM1, with up to 4GB of LPDDR4/4X RAM and 32GB of EMMC storage; this makes it compatible with existing accessories.

3 models of VIM3 are planned for release, however specifications for only the first model are available at this time. They will announce the exact launch date, and information about the other models in email updates.

Khadas VIM3 preliminary specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S922X hexa-core processor with 4x Arm Cortex-A73 and 2x Cortex A53 cores, Arm Mali-G52 MP4 GPU, built-in Cortex-M4 core for “always-on” processing
  • MCU – STMicro STM8S003 with Programmable EEPROM for power management, customizations, and boot media configuration
  • System Memory & StorageVIM3 Basic – 2GB LPDDR4/4X RAM, 16GB eMMC 5.1 flash
  • VIM3 Pro – 4GB LPDDR4/4X RAM, 32GB eMMC 5.1 flash
  • Common – 16MB SPI flash, microSD card slot supporting up to UHS-I SDR104, support for M.2 2280 NVMe SSD (see Expansion section)
  • Video Output & Display InterfaceHDMI2.1 transmitter with 3D, Dynamic HDR, CEC, and HDCP 2.2 support
  • 4-lane MIPI-DSI interface up to 1920 x 1080

Khadas VIM3 comes with some extra features compared to ODROID-N2 including built-in eMMC storage (instead of external flash), an M.2 socket supporting NVMe SSD, built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, a MIPI-DSI connector, and a few other features like an accelerometer and larger SPI flash. VIM3 is also quite smaller compared to ODROID-N2.

Khadas VIM3 is coming soon, and pricing has not been announced yet. More details may be found in the “launch page
