Radxa has officially launched the Rock Pi N10, a sandwich-style 100 x 100mm board based around the Rockchip RK3399Pro SoC. This community-backed board has a new flavor of RK3399 that adds up to 3-TOPS NPU co-processor for better performance in deep-learning workloads.

The new Rock Pi N10 has a maximum RAM allotment beyond the RK3399’s 4GB limit so it can provide RAM for the NPU. There are three models available. Model A comes with 4GB LPDDR3 (3GB for CPU, 1GB for NPU) and 16GB eMMC. Model B has 6GB LPDDR3 (4GB for CPU, 2GB for NPU) and 32GB eMMC. Model C has the highest amount of RAM of 8GB LPDDR3 (4GB for CPU, 4GB for NPU) and eMMC storage of 64GB. The RK3399 has 2X 1.8GHz Cortex-A72 and 4X 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 cores, the ARM Mali T860MP4 GPU, and the NPU.

Other highlighted features of this new board are 16 to 64GB of eMMC storage with microSD and M.2 SSD expansion support, HDMI 2.0 port supporting up to 4K60 output. A two-lane MIPI DSI connector, 3.5mm analog audio jack, two-lane MIPI CSI camera connector, two USB 2.0 Host and one USB 3.0 OTG port, a gigabit Ethernet port with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, and support for USB Power Delivery and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. There’s also a GPIO header with 40 pins, including 1x UART, 2x SPI, 2x I2C, 1x PCM/I2S, 1x PWM, 1x S/PDIF, 1x ADC, 6x GPIO, and two each of 5V and 3.3V power.
