Rockchip RK3399 and RK3288 are open-sourced for hundred kinds of industries
Rockchip flagship chip RK3399 system platform was announced to open source last month for hundred kinds of applications. This strategy has influenced the whole semiconductor industry.
Compared with RK3399, RK3288, positioned in middle and high-end market, is the earliest open-sourced chip of Rockchip. RK3288 is open-sourced for hundred kinds of industries and have a pretty big industry and market scale.
For Performance, RK3288 is based on 28nm HKMG process. The processor adopts Quad-core ARM Cortex-A17, up to1.8 GHz. DDR controller is dual-channel 64 bits DDR3 / DDR3L / LPDDR2 design. GPU adopts Mali – T7 series, up to 600 MHz. RK3288 is built into the 2D/3D graphics GPU acceleration processor, perfectly support OpenGL ES, OpenCL 1.1/2.0/3.1 DirectX9.3.In terms of the 3D effect, comparing with similar products, RK3288 has larger improvement. RK3288 also supports all mainstream video formats decoding, supports H. 265 and 4Kx2K resolution video decoding.
For interface, RK3288 has a variety of high-speed display output interface abundant peripheral interface support ability, such as dual LVDS, dual MIPI – DSI, eDP1.1, HDMI 2.0, etc., and supports embedded 13 m ISP dual MIPI – CSI2.
In order to provide open source support for developers and the industry, RK3288 is open to all code for product level. Same as RK3399, Rockchip also provide instant technical support on the open source community.
Famous processor and electronic enterprise Phytec launched phyCORE-RK3288 ARM CortexTM-A17 System on Module industrial control board, which is based on RK3288 SOM. According to the promotion materials on Phytec official website, the performance of RK3288 CPU and GPU is excellent and can easily deal with HD videos ,multitasking, and suitable for mobile applications.
According to foreign media reports, earlier this year, ASUS has launched a microcomputer Tinker Board based on Rockchip RK3288 Cortex-A17, frequency of 1.8 GHz, supporting 4K H. 264 video decoding, gigabit level of Ethernet transmission speed. The price is 64.9 Euro.
During 2017 Embedded World Exhibition in March, a industrial robot based on RK3288 has attracts lots of attention because of its high stability, intelligence, low consumption and flexibility.
