Geniatech ARM-Based Mini PC Edge Computing at Computex 2023, Rockchip RK3566/3588

Posted by – June 10, 2023

Geniatech is happy to reconnect with the Computex audience after a strange gap of four years. During this time, Geniatech has been hard at work, engaging in numerous productive meetings with their esteemed customers. Although they have only a brief five minutes before they have to head to the airport, they am determined to utilize this time efficiently and provide you with an overview of several groundbreaking products that Geniatech has developed—specifically, their new line of Edge Computing ARM-based mini PCs.

Now, you might be wondering, what exactly is Edge Computing? Well, let me shed some light on this transformative concept. Edge Computing refers to the practice of performing computation and data processing at or near the source of data generation, rather than relying solely on centralized cloud servers to do that work. By bringing computing power closer to the data source, Edge Computing enables faster processing, reduced latency, enhanced security, and greater autonomy in various applications. And that’s precisely what Geniatech’s new mini PCs are designed to deliver!

Let’s kick off the introduction with our first standout product, the Geniatech Case 3566. This sleek and compact mini PC boasts exceptional input and output capabilities, making it a perfect fit for Edge Computing use cases. It supports both Linux and Android operating systems, offering incredible versatility for a wide range of IoT projects. Equipped with a robust AI capability, the Case 3566 is ready to tackle complex tasks with ease.

Moving on, they have their remarkable space-saving Edge Computing box based on the RK 1126 chipset. This innovative device features not just one, but two Ethernet ports—an invaluable asset for various project requirements. Additionally, it offers USB 3 connectivity, further expanding its connectivity options. Designed with a pure Linux environment, it includes a powerful 4K encoder, allowing for seamless encoding and decoding operations. Their extensive expertise in encoding and decoding ensures optimal utilization of this feature, enabling smooth IP input and HDMI output functionality.

But wait, there’s more! Allow them to introduce their latest gem—the result of their collaboration with Rock Chip and their cutting-edge Rockchip 3588 chipset. This powerhouse mini PC sets new benchmarks in performance and capability. With two HDMI outputs capable of supporting up to 8K resolution, an HDMI input, a DP port, USB Type-C connectivity, and GPIO support, it’s a force to be reckoned with. Its impressive decoding and encoding capabilities bring unparalleled versatility, making it an indispensable asset for demanding applications. By pushing the boundaries of what was traditionally limited to x86 SOC devices, Geniatech’s new offering opens up exciting possibilities and expands the horizons of Edge Computing.

He is delighted to share that their customers have responded overwhelmingly positively to these new products. The feedback they have received thus far has been incredibly encouraging, validating their commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction.

While they regret not being able to delve deeper into the features and functionalities of these remarkable mini PCs today, he promise to keep you updated with comprehensive insights in the near future. The world of Edge Computing is rapidly evolving, and Geniatech remains at the forefront of this technological revolution.

Thank you for joining us on this brief journey into the world of Geniatech’s Edge Computing solutions. Stay tuned for more updates, detailed reviews, and demonstrations as they continue to shape the future of computing with their groundbreaking products.

The company has offices in other locations, including Beijing and Hangzhou. The team works on shared projects and management software. The tour features also the internal HR meeting room.

Mr Fang takes us on a tour of their office and introduces us to the team. They start by showing us a beautiful view of the mountains outside the office window. Mr Fang then takes us to their room, which is large and shows us the view outside. We then see the meeting rooms, including the department for financial management, and the product management department, where they show us a Raspberry Pi form factor running Linux based on the Rockchip RK3588 providing a powerful alternative to the Raspberry Pi. They discuss the Linux support, graphics acceleration, and benchmarking of the product. The host talks about potential customers who might be interested in a Debian Rockchip laptop and mentions that it could be an alternative to the MacBook M1. They also talk about chip shortages and how Amlogic and Rockchip have enough supply. The host then discusses how they work with customers, even those outside of China, through project management teams and sharing code and documents. They even have a hotel near the office where customers can stay for up to weeks if they want to come on location accelerate the technical aspects of the partnership bringing the different engineering teams together. The host has been working in this industry for nine years and has the knowledge and experience to manage projects. They also discuss the growth of the industry in Shenzhen and how other cities in China are following Shenzhen’s example. Finally, we see a demonstration of Ubuntu running on top of Rockchip RK3568.

Sorry for the wobbly image, I somehow disabled by mistake the Dual IS 2 IBIS on my Panasonic G9 with 12-60 Leica lens, so I recorded this video without in-camera stabilization and I had to try to stabilize the footage by it zooming in a little bit into the video using the Davinci Resolve video editor.

Libre Computer Development Boards S905X, RK3328, H2+/H3/H5 form-factor compatible with Raspberry Pi

Libre Computer introduces three products of their CC-series which are form-factor compatible with the Raspberry Pi boards and based on open-market hardware. Depending on the model, these single-board computers (SBCs) offer higher performance, more RAM, and/or more IO while sharing the existing aftermarket parts ecosystem. All three products were featured on crowdfunding and supported by free and open source software (FOSS) like Linux and u-boot.

AML-S905X-CC, nicknamed Le Potato, is based on the popular Amlogic S905X SoC. It offers up to 2GB of RAM, four 64-bit cores, 4K60 video playback with HDR, and built-in infrared receiver. This board is the most power-efficient platform of the three and uses less than one watt at idle. There is a large suite of available software for the S905X SoC and it is the only one that has previously passed certification for Google’s Android TV platform. Currently, video decode is missing from upstream Linux and is only available from Amlogic’s BSP with Linux 4.9. Android up to 8 Oreo is available with design contract.

ROC-RK3328-CC, nicknamed Renegade, is based on the Rockchip RK3328 SoC. It offers up to 4GB of high-speed DDR4, four 64-bit cores, 4K60 video playback with HDR, USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet. Perfect for IO intensive application like home media center, NAS, microservice virtualization, and more. HDMI support in upstream Linux is scheduled to be completed in Q4 2018. Ubuntu and Debian with accelerated video and 3D is available based on Rockchip’s BSP with Linux 4.4. Android up to 8 Oreo is schedule to be available in Q3 2018 with design contract.

ALL-H3-CC, nicknamed Tritium, is based on three separate Allwinner SoCs: H2+, H3, and H5. The H2+ variant offers 512MB of RAM, four 32-bit cores, and 1080P video playback. The H3 variant is the H2+ variant with 1GB of RAM and 4K30 video playback. The H5 variant offers 2GB of RAM, four 64-bit cores, and 4K30 video playback. There is a large software community behind Allwinner SoCs called linux-sunxi and they have been upstreaming Linux hardware support for almost a decade. This platform also has a crowdfunded effort for video decode Linux upstream underway by Bootlin. Android up to 7 Nougat is available.

Full Comparison of Board Features

Libre Computer platforms are radio-less, FCC and CE certified, long-term-supported (LTS 5Y+) single-board computers. Libre Computer offers hardware customization on all supported SoC platforms. Standard boards with components added/removed can be ordered with 1K MOQ. Small effort customization/mezzanine design contract can be requested with 5K MOQ.
