wide voltage supply range RK3399

The mini PC supports wall-mounting, and optional DIN Rail mounting through an additional kit. Vecow EIC-1000 can run either Android 7.1 or Debian 9.0 (Linux), which are older versions of the operating systems, but that’s probably because the processor was announced in 2016, and the company decided to rely on SDKs provided by Rockchip.

As a quick note, mainline Linux does support most of RK3399/RK3399K features, but the status matrix on Rockchip’s open-source website shows incomplete HDMI support and a complete lack of GPU and VPU support. But I’m not quite sure the table is up to date, as the recent Debian 11 release specifically added the Panfrost open-source GPU driver for Arm Mali-T860 and various other Mali graphics processors.

The press release we’ve received by email does not provide availability nor pricing information about Vecow EIC-1000 RK3399-based industrial computer. Further details may be found on the product page.
