VIM3 surpasses the competition with these unique specs.
The VIM3 SBC is the latest addition to our popular Khadas VIM series. It has a powerful Amlogic A311D SoC: x4 Cortex A73 performance-cores (2.2Ghz), and x2 Cortex A53 efficiency-cores (1.8Ghz) are merged into a hexa-core configuration, and fabricated with a 12nm process to maximise performance, thermal and electrical efficiency.
VIM3 is designed with the same form-factor as our popular VIM2 and VIM1. It is the size of a credit-card, and fits perfectly inside our DIY Case. Although diminutive, VIM3 is competitively-priced and fully-featured; everything you need is already built-in.
Digital-signage developers will love the programmable MCU, MIPI-CSI for dual cameras, real-time clock, wake-on-lan functionality and 3-axis g-sensor to detect signage orientation. The M2X Extension Board has an NVMe SSD slot, power-over-ethernet, 100-mbit ethernet, 4G module slot, nano-sim slot, and GPIO.
The new VIM3 SBC goes beyond what our original VIM models have to offer. It has an onboard 5.0 TOPS NPU for neural network applications, an M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs that can switch between PCIe and USB 3.0 via Khadas KBI commands, and a USB-C port with 5-20 volt USB power-delivery input.
VIM3 is a beauty and a beast.
