Hey peeps,


I'm beginner Arduino user (Arduino UNO) and I was looking to upgrade to a stronger hardware. Because my future projects need a lot of computing power. After compared all these other devices Firefly RK3288 (4GB RAM and 32GB storage version especially) seemed to be the right choice. But I don't see much sources on the internet about it.

Can I use it like a Raspberry Pi or Arduino and do electronic development stuff like controlling servo motors, connecting sensors, lcd screens etc... Does it support C++ and Phyton?


Also do extension pins have analog in and digital out pins (supporting pwm output)? Is there 3.3v or 5v support?


Thanks

You can get information from wiki: http://wiki.t-firefly.com/index.php/Firefly-RK3288/en

like "Download Default Android SDK":http://wiki.t-firefly.com/index.php/Fir ... ndroid_SDK


if you want to develop lcd , We recommend that you use the pad sdk:

In my opinion currently the board has better support for Android and development under Android than Linux. Given there is no TRM (technical reference manual) you need to be aware that any I/O interfacing that you require may involve you having to having to read the kernel driver code to work out what is happening or you to implement your own libraries.
