Quantum Linux Dev Board by the maker, might be the smallest Linux Dev board, built with Allwinner H3 M.2 SoM and expansion board

Seeed and Zhihui, a full-time AI algorithm engineer and an enthusiastic maker, together bring the open-source Linux Development Kit from the idea to the market, which can run Ubuntu Core on a quad-core Allwinner H3 around only 35 x 40mm.

Zhihui’s Quark-N and Atom-N projects are being cooked up in Seeed’s own production facilities, including parts procurement, pick and place, reflow, testing, and quality inspection. Seeed’s professional Design for Manufacture (DFM) minimized production risks and maximizing yield, quality, and efficiency.  Click here to learn more about Zhihui’s journey of designing and manufacturing at Seeed.

Possibly the smallest Linux development board on the market

Quantum Mini Linux Dev. Kit is possibly the smallest Linux development board on the market, a highly integrated SOM with quad-core CPU that can run Linux at only 31mmx22mm, which also includes network connectivity. The Expansion board at 40mmx35mm is with Microphone, Gyroscope, Accelerometer,4 x Buttons (GPIO-KEY, Uboot, Recovery, Reset), and a TFT display

The SoM is called Quark-N, based on Allwinner H3, Quad-core Cortex-A7, and ARM Mali400 MP2 GPU. Most of the GPIO is led out by the board through the M.2 Key-A golden finger interface to minimize the bottom board design difficulty.

The carrier board is called Atom-N, which can be connected with Quark-N through the M.2 interface. Atom-N leads out a row of golden finger pins to realize I/O expansion, expand SPI, I2C, UART, GPIO. Also, it is equipped with a microphone, MPU6050 motion sensor (accelerometer and gyroscope), onboard 4 buttons (GPIO-KEY, Uboot, Recovery, Reset), IPS display, and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity.

Running the Allwinner H3, Quad-core Cortex-A7 @ 1GHz.

First hand booting into the Quantum Mini Linux Dev Board. Ngl it’s literally the smallest Linux SBC out there!

We will update more about this ultra-small Linux board. Stay tuned and let us know what mini application you want to see!
