I am new to this Forum, and I am sorry if I am asking this in the wrong thread. Please report it 2 me.
I would like to design some hardware which can run a Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS distro and where I can use OpenCV on with USB3.0 and Ethernet. And nice 2 have is a Desktop environment (so HDMI).
Concern is the hardware availability in parts also.... RaspberryPI could and seems an alternative.
You might like the RockPi4 (https://wiki.radxa.com/Rockpi4/getting_started#get_start_specs) It's somewhat open in that I think they do schematics. Nothing like as open as Olimex though.
I'd really like to see a high-performance Olimex board too. The BPI-M2s (https://wiki.banana-pi.org/Banana_Pi_BPI-M2S) looks almost perfect for my needs. Except it's not open and lacks USB3.
Is there any likelihood of Olimex doing a hexa-core processor perhaps A311D with 4GB+ Ram?
