Radxa ZERO 3E SBC is Now Availabe for $15.99

In a previous post, we discussed the Radxa Zero 3W & 3E, both powered by the Rockchip RK3566 and designed to mimic the form factor of the Raspberry Pi Zero 2W and Orange Pi Zero 2W. At that time, Radxa had not disclosed its pricing. However, they have recently announced that these models will be available exclusively at the Arace Tech online store with competitive pricing.

The SBC is powered by an RK3566-based SBC which is a quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A55 CPU (up to 1.8GHz) with an ARM Mali G52 2EE GPU. They support OpenGL ES versions up to 3.2, Vulkan 1.1, and OpenCL 2.0, enhancing their graphical processing capabilities.

The SBC is versatile and can be configured with 1,2,4 and 8GB LPDDR4 RAM options. It also has a Micro SD slot along with multiple connectivity options including Gigabit Ethernet with PoE (extra HAT required), USB-C OTG, USB 3.0, and Micro HDMI (1080P@60fps). Additionally, it features a 40-pin header for extensive interfacing (UARTs, SPI, I2C, etc.), and dual power inputs (5V DC, 3.3V).
