Asus' scope of Raspberry Pi elective sheets sees another new model show up, however this sheets shuns the Raspberry Pi structure factor utilized in the past Handyman Sheets for something that seems to be a NUC.
The models are all in light of a Rockchip RK3568 SoC which sees a 64-bit, quad-center Arm v8 computer chip. The SoC is cooled utilizing a position of safety heatsink which implies that this new board can be dropped into a position of safety case. The structure factor is very Nvidia Jetson, with a turned HDMI connector and ports along one side of the board.

Line 11 – Cell 0 1 x USB C, 2 x USB 3.2, 2 x USB 2 pin header
Column 12 – Cell 0 CAN Transport, 2 x COM 232 header
GPIO 1 x 12 pin GPIO (GND, I2C, 2 x UART, SPI, SPDIF, 4 x PWM, 2 x ADC)
Operating system Support Debian 11/Android 12
Power 12 – 24V DC by means of 5525 barrel jack
Column 16 – Cell 0 1 x 4 pin Power input header
Dimensions 100 x 100mm
The 100 x 100mm structure factor bears the cost of somewhat more space that a Raspberry Pi 4, and ruling the underside of the board is the previously mentioned heat sink. Putting this under the board gives more space on top to numerous M.2 openings, one of which seems to accompany a Wi-Fi card introduced. The other opening can be utilized with 4/5G radios or a SSD. Be that as it may, do you want a SSD when the 3N can be specced with a 32 or 64GB eMMC and obviously we can utilize the Miniature SD card for booting/extra capacity. Two USB 3 ports give quick admittance to outer capacity, or no doubt the console and mouse that we will use to work with the board. USB C gives OTG administrations, without any notice of Force Conveyance.

The glaring issue at hand is the GPIO. Past Asus Tinker Sheets aped the 40 pin GPIO tracked down on the Raspberry Pi, however programming support was inadequate. For the 3N we see that Asus are utilizing its own design, a 1 x 12 (it claims in the particulars, yet we can see a 2 x 16 design in the pictures). While we might not have an overabundance of GPIO pins, we take care of the multitude of bases (I2C, SPI, UART, PWM, ADC and Computerized IO). We simply need the product backing to be there. Discussing which, the 3N backings Debian, Yocto and Android working frameworks. Ideally one, while perhaps not each of the decisions gives equipment sped up work areas and video playback. With respect to GPIO programming, in the past Asus involved its own adaptation of RPI.GPIO for Python. The first, made by Ben Croston, rose to distinction on account of its reception by the Raspberry PI Starting point for its initial Python learning assets. Almost certainly, Asus will keep on utilizing its own Python module, and the GPIO ought to likewise be available by means of the Linux terminal.
What amount does the 3N cost? Well we don't have any idea. We checked out a couple of Asus affiliates, through joins found on the Asus site, yet without much of any result. We need to figure that it will be more costly than the Asus Tinker Board 2, which can go for around the $200 mark.
