Sorry, no stores were provided.

  • You can try Amazon or eBay for "mainstream" single board computers, or Aliexpress, Banggood and GearBest for China-based SBCs.
  • For industrial single board computers, you can try requesting a quote either on the official website or (sometimes) on Alibaba
  • You can also suggest a (possibly international) store using the "Report mistake" feature.

Product Description

The SBC-M7 is marketed as "a form-fit and function industrial replacement of a Pi3" with "more in performance and moreover in industrial safety of the product." The board uses Rockchip's quad-core Cortex-A53 RK3328 SoC, and provides 1GB or 2GB RAM and an option of 16GB of on-board eMMC storage. Ports include HDMI, camera, USB2/3, Ethernet, and UART, plus optional on-board WiFi 802a/b/g/n and BT module. Additionally, there's a 22-pin expansion header that's claimed to be compatible with that of the RPi 3.
