IBOX mini multi-function computer (Itead IM140318005)
IBOX is a multi-function computer box which is developed based on ITEAD A10/20 core board. It can run several operating systems such as Android and Linux to meet the needs of various multimedia applications. With external function expansion modules, IBOX can be transformed into a variety of virtual instruments, which can even be used as the control and gateway of intelligent home system. We recommend to order IBOX Package.
IBOX is a mini multi-function single board computer which is developed based on ITEAD A10/A20 Core and hackable. Hardware configuration is as follows :
- CPU Allwinner A20 (Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7)
- GPU Mali 400 MP
- DDR3 RAM 1GByte
- NAND FLASH 4Gbyte
It offers four USB ports , an HDMI port, an SP port, a 100M Ethernet interface, a Micro-SD interface and a 32-pin multi-function expansion interface. There is an infrared receiver that supports remote control and a two-color LED indicating the running status on front panel of IBOX.
IBOX can run multiple operating systems in both NAND FLASH version and SD card version, including Android and Linux. As it has the same core board configuration with Iteaduino Plus, all the system and software that run on Iteaduino Plus can also run on IBOX.
The Uboot button, left of the USB ports, triggers FEL. Hold the button in while plugging in power.
3 of the 4 USB ports are connected to the outputs of the USB hub IC. However, USB 4 is connected directly to the port and supports USB OTG. Pins 1 and 2 of the expansion header export the same USB OTG port.
Power is supplied by an MP2307 switching regulator. Theoretically, you should be able to power this board with 12V (which is more convenient than 9) without issues, or modify the board to bypass the regulator and provide 5V directly.
The regulator provides a maximum of 3A @ 5V.
The IBOX also has a dual-colour LED (red/green) and in infrared receiver connected to PB4 of the A20.
The 32pin expansion header provides access to
- Stereo analogue input/output
- 4 UARTs (2 dedicated, 2 shared by SPI pins)
- Duplication of USB port 4
