Firefly-RK3288 is a new development board which powered by RK3288 Cortex A17 processor of Rockchip.

It broadens the eyes of traditional development board and aims to all user community. Rockchip is famous in the pad,cellphone and TV-BOX industry. It has a good reputation in the consumer electronics. As a high-performance platform , Firefly join in the Raspberry pi and become one of the opening resource hardware members. It suppose to provide a platform for those people who are creativity to fly their dream. I was lucky to have a look  before Firefly come to the market. Now ,let’s take a look on the Firefly.

TV BOX performance:

The official framework has already included a TV launcher,you can use the Firefly as a TV box via remote control.






Ubuntu performance:

Once you connect the Firefly to a display via VGA or HDMI,the Firefly will become a microcomputer. It supported by Ubuntu14.04. Then you can useFirefly for entertainment or work.






However,as a development board,one of the most important thing is that after-sale service.

There must be supported strongly by the company or the community.

For Firefly-RK3288,the developers can get the support from the wiki and forum  on their official website.





The last one thing,with the RK3288,Firefly have make many breakthroughes on the technology.
