Features & Functionality

>Class-Leading Performance

With its powerful and modern quad-core ARM-based processor — the Rockchip RK3288 — Tinker Board S offers significantly improved performance versus other popular SBC boards. To provide the flexibility needed for different builds and projects, Tinker Board S features 2GB of LPDDR3 dual-channel memory and is equipped with an onboard 16GB eMMC and SD 3.0 interface that offer significantly faster read and write speeds for the OS, applications and file storage.

>Robust GPU Performance & Functionality

Featuring a powerful but energy-efficient design, Tinker Board S supports next-generation graphics and GPU computing API's. Powered by an ARM-based Mali™-T760 MP4 GPU, Tinker Board S' GPU and fixed-function processors allow for a wide range of uses, including high-quality media playback, gaming, computer vision, gesture recognition, image stabilization and processing, as well as computational photography and more.

Tinker Board S has HDMI CEC hardware circuit implemented, with the supported software, it allowing multimedia enthusiasts to control TV outputs using a single remote control for a better entertainment experience. Other fixed functions include H.264 and H.265 playback support, as well as HD and UHD video playback.*

*HD and UHD video playback at 30 fps on Tinker Board S is currently available via the included media player. Third-party video players and applications may not offer hardware acceleration, which will result in limited or unstable playback performance. Please refer to the FAQs for more information.

>HD Audio Quality

Further improving on key areas found lacking on many SBC boards, Tinker Board S is equipped with an HD codec that supports up to 24-bit/192kHz audio. Its integrated audio jack supports audio output and a microphone in, without an extension module. The audio jack also offers hassle-free plug-in detection so it automatically switches the audio output to an audio jack when the speaker or headset is connected.

>Maker-Friendly, with IoT Connectivity

Tinker Board S features standard maker connectivity options, including a 40-pin GPIO interface and enhanced I2S interface with Master and Slave modes for improved compatibility. With the GPIO API, Tinker Board S allows for interfacing with a range of inputs from buttons, switches, sensors, LEDs, and much more. Tinker Board S is equipped with one DSI MIPI connection for displays and touchscreens. A secondary CSI MIPI connection for compatible cameras allows for computer vision, and much more.

Tinker Board S also features Gbit LAN for Internet and network connectivity. A dedicated bus resource designed for the LAN port ensures consistent Ethernet performance. The integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controller on the Tinker Board S is shielded with a metal cover to ensure minimal interference and improved radio performance. An integrated IPEX antenna header allows for easy antenna replacement or upgrades.

Tinker Board S also features a full-size HDMI output. Additionally, it includes four USB 2.0 ports for extensive peripheral and accessory connectivity.

>Enhanced DIY Design

Careful consideration went into the design and development of the Tinker Board S to ensure that it provides a superior user experience for first-time builders or for seasoned hobbyists. Builders will appreciate the color-coded GPIO header, which makes it easy to recognize respective pin headers.

The PCB dimensions and topology of the Tinker Board S align with standard SBC boards, allowing support for a wide range of chassis and physical accessories. The PCB features silk-screening with a connection header and location callouts, for improved connection clarity. The onboard MIPI headers also feature color-coded pull tabs.

Tinker Board S also includes a heatsink, which helps improve heat dissipation under heavy loading or in hot ambient environments.
