What makes OLINUXINO different from the other small Linux computers.
OLINUXINO is completely open source hardware and open source software, which means you have access to all the CAD files and sources and you can reuse them for your own personal or commercial projects. There are NO restrictions to manufacturing and selling these boards for your own use or resale. This means security for your business, you own everything and have control.
OLIMEX have agreement with Allwinner for longevity support. We can purchase Allwinner chips which are obsolete if we order minimum quantity of 50Kpcs. This allow us to offer our boards for a very long period of time (typical life of Allwinner SOCs are 8-12 months) and we keep producing boards with A10 and A13 although these chips were anounced as obsolete in 2014 and Allwinner do not sell them anymore. We can order these chips and keep producing the boards with A10 and A13 as long as there is demand for them. We also sell the Allwinner chips on our web, so if you decide to manufacture OLINUXINO by yourself locally you can do this safely.
OLINUXINO design is improving continually, the other Linux boards have one or two revisions, our boards have many revisions (some of them 12 or more) as we listen to community feedback and implement new and new improvements, but keeping backward compatibility, so once you choose your OLINUXINO you can be sure you will get them always in same specs, just better and better with time. This is not toy board which will overheat, or use linear LDOs or have weak USB host capability and it will not reboot when exposed to noise like or competitors do :) Our boards are used in applications where reliable 24/7 operation is needed. Each detail of them is designed based on our 25+ years of experience. With the open source design nothing is hidden and you can check and evaluate every bit of them.
OLINUXINO is available in any quantity. We are not only designing our boards but also manufacture in house. This gives us independance and we can produce the boards in any quantity fast and flexible.
