Run emteria.OS based on Android 11 for ROCK Pi 4B

The new year starts with new hardware support. The Android-based operating system emteria.OS is now available for the ROCK Pi 4B. Emteria just released the first Android 11-based image for the ROCK Pi.

ROCK Pi 4B is a powerful developer board

The ROCK Pi 4B is a single board computer (SBC) similar in design and form factor to the Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi 4. Unlike the popular Raspberry Pi models, the ROCK Pi 4B has best-in-class performance. It features a powerful hexa-core ARM-based processor, Rockchip RK3399, and its GPU, Mali™-T860MP4 GPU, offers 4 cores and a clock speed of 600 MHz.

More features of the ROCK Pi

Besides CPU and GPU performance, different ports enable developers to connect a wide range of different peripherals. Another improvement over other SBCs like the Raspberry Pi 4 is the expanded connectivity for USB-connected storage. Where the Raspberry Pi comes with micro-SD card support, the ROCK Pi has eMMC and M.2 SSD ports. These are much faster and are more reliable than a micro-SD card. In terms of storage speed and flexibility, the ROCK Pi is a great alternative to other SBCs.

The B version supported by emteria comes equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0. Furthermore, it has a Gigabit Ethernet port, a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports and an HDMI output. In addition, there is an analog audio output, MIPI DSI and MIPI CSI for displays and cameras. Both the current Pi camera and the official Pi display work with these ports. The ROCK Pi does support 4K displays and its mix of ports supports up to two displays which gives it an edge over other boards.

Bottom line

The ROCK Pi 4 is your model of choice should you have reached the performance limits of the Raspberry Pi. Combined with emteria.OS it offers you a reliable and extremely powerful platform to realize your industrial use cases.
