SOPINE A64 is a compute module powered by the same Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit Processor used in the PINE A64 with 2G LPDDR3 RAM memory, Power Management Unit, SPI Flash and integrated MicroSD Slot (for bootable OS images microSD card). The SOPINE module has a 5 years LTS (Long Term Supply) status, which means that it will be supplied to 2022 at the very least. There is a one year warranty period for the SOPINE module.

This tiny compute module uses SODIMM-DDR3 form-factor and can be paired with either the Clusterboard, the Baseboard or a custom host PCB for industrial or other embedded applications. It is fully compatible with the PINE A64-LTS in terms of software support

  • Allwinner A64 Quad Core SOC with Mali 400 MP2 GPU
  • LPDDR3 RAM (up to 2GB)
  • Micro SD
  • SPI Flash 128Mbit
  • CMOS Sensor Interface Port
  • SODIMM Form-Factor

Adafruit Blinka Installation

We use a special library called adafruit_blinka (named after Blinka, the CircuitPython mascot) to provide the layer that translates the CircuitPython hardware API to whatever library the Linux board provides.

For example, on Raspberry Pi we use the python RPi.GPIO library. For any I2C interfacing we'll use ioctl messages to the /dev/i2c device. For SPI we'll use the spidev python library, etc. These details don't matter so much because they all happen underneath the adafruit_blinka layer.
