OKdo launches Rock5A board for edge AI
Board manufacturer OKdo has launched the latest version of its Rock single board computer developed with Radxa.
The more affordable ROCK 5A board is based around the scaled down Rockchip RK3588S octa-core processor with quad Cortex A76 and a quad Cortex A55 and ARM Mali G610MC4 GPU and custom neural processor unit (NPU) and supports 8Kp60 video. It also has up to 16GB of 64bits LPDDR4x RAM on the board to support large AI frameworks.
Pricing starts at $74 for the 4GB version at an introductory price, with the 16GB version at $159 at full price.

The ROCK 5A will run Linux v5.10 Kernel, supporting Ubuntu, Debian, openFyde OS, Armbian, RebornOS, Android 12 and later. Customers can download the software from OKdo.com and find additional community support by leveraging the 1.5 million members of the DesignSpark community.
“Since the launch of OKdo’s family of ROCK boards, the market has been responding very well in a variety of verticals including consumer, industrial and agriculture segments. I am thrilled to add yet another member to the ROCK family and anticipate fast adoption with new and existing customers. The ROCK 5A is the perfect blend of power, versatility and affordability,” said Richard Curtin, Co-Founder and CTO of OKdo.
“We are excited to introduce the next generation of low-cost, high-performance and compact credit card-sized ROCK 5A single board computer in global collaboration with OKdo. We believe the ROCK 5A already has entry level desktop PC performance without worrying about power consumption and heating issues. We can’t wait to see the community and developers make amazing applications based on the ROCK 5A SBC,” said Tom Tang, President of VamRS Technology.
The higher performance ROCK 5B based on the full RK3588 is in stock at OKdo and RS for immediate shipment and shares key features such as the 8k output, octa-core processor, power on/off and built-in Real-Time-Clock.
