@Gouwa has got some good news:
Our VIM3 SBC with the Amlogic A311D SoC will be launching on 24 June!
#VIM3 Launch Pricing:
VIM3 Basic (2 / 16GB): $69.99
VIM3 Pro (4 / 32GB): $99.99
Access to the discount coupon for our special VIM3 launch price will end on 24 June 2019.
Stocks for our first production batch are limited, not everyone will be able to get #VIM3 at these low prices. Take part in our contest to reserve your VIM3 Basic / Pro at $69.99 or $99.99 respectively.

The VIM3 SBC is the latest addition to our popular Khadas VIM series. It is equipped with the powerful Amlogic A311D SoC, based on the big-little CPU architecture: x4 Cortex A73 performance-cores clocked at 2.2Ghz, and x2 Cortex A53 efficiency-cores clocked at 1.8Ghz, are merged into a hexa-core configuration, and fabricated with a 12nm process to maximise performance, thermal and electrical efficiency.
VIM3 is designed with the same form-factor as our popular VIM2 and VIM1. It is the size of a credit-card, with all I/O ports located on one-side. Although diminutive, VIM3 is competitively-priced and fully-featured; everything you need is already built-in. The Pro-model comes with onboard 4GB LPDDR4/4X RAM, 32GB of EMMC storage and 2T2R 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Bluetooth 5.0.
In addition, VIM3 comes with unique features designed for our customers. Digital-signage developers will love the onboard programmable MCU, MIPI-CSI for connecting to cameras, real-time clock and wake-on-lan functionality. We’ve also included a tri-axis digital accelerometer to detect signage orientation. The M2X Extension Board will provide additional developer options such as power-over-ethernet, dual-ethernet, 4G and GPIO.
The new VIM3 SBC also goes beyond what our original VIM models have to offer. It has an onboard 5.0 TOPS NPU for neural network applications, an M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs that can switch between PCIe and USB 2.0 via Khadas KBI commands, and a USB-C port with 5-20 volt USB power-delivery input. Connect with up to 2 independent displays via HDMI and MIPI-DSI, one of which may be touch-enabled using the built-in TP connector.
