The RK3399-Q7 is the new flagship product, combining best-in-class performance with a rich set of peripherals in a 70mm-by-70mm module:

⁃ 2 CPU clusters in a Big.Little configuration with advanced power-management and dynamic frequency scaling
⁃ dual-core ARM Cortex-A72 MPCore (up to 2.0GHz)
⁃ quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 MPcore (up to 1.42GHz)
⁃ ARM Trustzone
⁃ ARM Mali T-860MP4 GPU
⁃ 2 channels (32bit each) of DDR3-1600 with (up to) 4GB
⁃ video encoding and decoding
⁃ decodes all common codecs, including H.265 and VP9, up to 2160p60
⁃ encodes H.264 in 1080p30
⁃ 2 independent camera sensor interfaces (MIPI-CSI)
⁃ video output as HDMI, Displayport, eDP and MIPI-DSI channels
⁃ high-performance Gigabit Ethernet controller
⁃ 2 USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports
⁃ PCI-Express v2.1 w/ 4-lanes

The mid-range RK3368-uQ7 module, which is designed to offer an easy upgrade path from our entry-level A64-uQ7 offering, will be the first 8-core Cortex-A53 module compatible with the 40mm-by-70mm micro-Qseven form-factor.

“By building our next generation of 64bit ARM-based system-on-modules with Rockchip’s RK3399 and RK3368 application processors, we will enhance our product lineup for industrial customers by offering the interfaces most requested for next-generation industrial applications. We can now offer USB 3.0, multiple independent MIPI-CSI interfaces, up to 3 concurrent displays and PCI-Express—all backed by our own in-house software support for Linux and Android,” explains Dr. Philipp Tomsich, Chief Technology Officer of Theobroma Systems, the key benefits of the new products to customers.

“Rockchip solutions have been widely used in industrial segment, but with the increasing demand from industrial customers for accelerating time-to-market and reducing development costs and risks meantime, we see more customers looking for system-on-module partner to help them in product development. The collaboration between Rockchip and Theobroma Systems will enable our customers to achieve high quality products with faster design cycles and a lower development cost. As Rockchip important local SoM partner in Vienna, Theobroma Systems will provide one-stop-shop service by offering RK3399-Q7 and RK3368-uQ7 module and Software support at the same time.” says Feng Chen, Senior Vice President of Rockchip.

The RK3399-Q7 will ship to early-access customers in the first quarter of 2017 and is supported by Linux and Android.
