Cubieboard goes for crowd funding

The DIY world is abuzz with Raspberry Pi news. I read a new project idea based on the Raspberry Pi every other day.  Though not a competitor to the Pi, there is another product in the market that uses a Cortex A8 processor.

In my opinion, the Raspberry Pi’s sole purpose is to help students (it is being used by anyone who wants to be “hands-on”) while the Cubieboard is more directed towards DIY enthusiasts.  I do envision an “Arduino like revolution” with the Cubieboard. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cubieboard complements Raspberry Pi in reaching a larger audience. Their website claims the following:

  • 1G ARM cortex-A8 processor, NEON, VFPv3, 256KB L2 cache
  • Mali400, OpenGL ES GPU
  • 1GB DDR3 @480MHz
  • HDMI 1080p Output
  • 10/100M Ethernet
  • 4GB Nand Flash
  • 2 USB Host, 1 micro SD slot, 1 SATA, 1 ir
  • 96 extend pin including I2C, SPI, RGB/LVDS, CSI/TS, FM-IN, ADC, CVBS, VGA, SPDIF-OUT, R-TP..
  • Running Android, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions

This might attract any DIY enthusiast 🙂 They have been selling it via Ali-express and also shipped the first batch to developers. They are currently pitching for crowd funding through Indiegogo. I am also a proud supporter of the Cubieboard. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
