Edge2, Tone2, VIM1S & BT Magic are coming this Fall.
Dear Khadas Community,
We will be launching five new Khadas products for Makers and ODM customers this Fall! Our launch event will be on September 20th, 2022 at 6:00 pm (GMT +8). Leave your email contact on our event landing page if you wish to be reminded about all the latest product updates!
The first product we want to introduce to Makers is our Khadas Edge2. This ARM PC is the successor to Edge and Edge-V. However, unlike its predecessor this new board uses the Rockchip RK3588S SoC, which is the smaller brother to the RK3588, fabricated using an 8 nanometer process.
As you can expect, this new processor not only has enhanced performance, it also has much better power and thermal efficiency which we know Makers will just love. This is why we call it an “ARM PC” because it is going to be the first Khadas product that has similar performance to an entry-level consumer PC on the market today!
Our Edge2 ARM PC has a few more notable features, which we shall keep secret for now. Stay tuned for further email and social media updates to learn more!
As some of you may already know, our beloved Tone1 which has been the staple for numerous DIY audiophile and OEM music projects will soon be discontinued and the final batch will be produced in the coming months. Tone2 will continue Tone1’s Hi-Fi legacy with the time-tested ESS ES9038Q2M DAC, so you can expect even better sound quality from Tone2!
ESS ES9038Q2M DAC
Anodized Aluminum Case (For Consumers)
Maker Kit (Bare PCB for Makers & OEM Customers)
We will also release a brand new color for Tone2 - “Dream Blue” as you can see below.
Our VIM1 single board computer has often been a low-cost and power-efficient solution for many Makers and OEM developers. The much-loved Amlogic S905X SoC sipped power and in many circumstances didn’t even require a heatsink to function normally.
This September we will be continuing to honor our Makers and OEM customers of the VIM1 with the upgraded VIM1S. This new single board computer integrates a new SoC with similar power requirements, but much improved processing and GPU performance.
We will announce more technical specifications in the coming weeks!
Not entirely related to Makers and OEM customers but still significant, is our much anticipated “BT Magic”! This product is a USB-C Bluetooth audio receiver that allows you to wirelessly send high-fidelity music from your smartphone or tablet directly to a Tone2 or Tone2 Pro!
More technical specifications to be announced soon…
M2X WWAN Extension Board & 5G Module
Makers will be delighted to know that they will soon be able to purchase the M2X WWAN Extension Board for their Khadas single board computer! This “shield board” is compatible with VIM4, VIM3, and Edge-V and it allows you to plug in a 5G transceiver module into your Khadas VIM4 (VIM3 and Edge-V only have software support for 4G modules at present).
We will provide more details about the supported frequencies, countries and software implementation in the coming days.
That’s all for now folks! Keep your eyes peeled and stay tuned for more mouth-watering updates! If you have any feedback for our upcoming launch, please email email@example.com.
