     EM3566 SBC

Rockchip RK3566 is a mid-range SoC launched by Rockchip in 2020. It is an upgrade version of the classic RK3288.
The CM3566 is a System-on-Module (SoM) that excels in versatility and power. It is equipped with a 1.8GHz RK3566 Quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A55 processor, a mali-G52 2EE GPU, a high-performance VPU, and 1 TOPS NPU, supporting OpenGL, Vulkan, and 4K video decoding.
This RK3566 module is a powerhouse built for efficiency. One of its standout features is its wealth of expansion interfaces. From high-capacity storage options like PCIe2.1 and SATA3.0 to versatile ports including UART, I2C, and USB 3.0. Its unique 186-pin stamp-hole interface not only makes it easy for customers to use, but also makes your product low cost and fast to market.
The CM3566 adopts a hard high-temperature resistant TG170 PCB, and the core board flatness is controlled under 0.5%.
It has obtained certifications for CE and FCC, and passed the tests including Storage test, Operation Test, Continuous operation test, Vibration test and Drop test.
The CM3566 module has gained many enterprise customers due to its strong and stable performance, and is used in various fields like Sports equipment, Makeup mirror, Smart medical care POCT, e-books, Electronic organ and DJ equipment.

The SoM has been released into mass production. 

Boardcon also provides the EM3566 development board and comprehensive documentation to quickly get started with the module and evaluate the solution.
