Indiedroid Nova

Indiedroid Nova

Some of our customers are discouraged that they can't get their hands on any Raspberry Pi 4B units.

But what if you could get your hands on something at least 3x as powerful, capable of 2x the RAM, 8K/60fps video, and with a full-function USB-C port, plus much more?

  • Supported by ameriDroid's legendary team based in the US!
  • English documentation and how-to guides will be available at launch.

9Tripod tapped ameriDroid.com to become the worldwide distributor of it's new SBC based on the powerful and efficient Rockchip RK3588S SoC, under the Indiedroid brand.

Indiedroid's goal is to create an active and inclusionary community that rewards community members who add value to the ecosystem. These awards will be in the form of bounties, achievement awards, and in other forms, based on open voting of the community. A portion of every sale will go towards these awards.

@Josh – We also have general instructions for installing OSes in our User Guide at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lxfstd_wEtGKdxPDNMWJx9ybFMwx5857/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=105837318023283837763&rtpof=true&sd=true

@Josh, thanks for your comment. We’ll add this to our webdev’s list of things to do. Hopefully he’ll be able to get to it soon.

We need to get install directions under each type of OS on the download page.

Probably not. Raspberry Pi seems to have a habit of making as much as they can proprietary, including their CSI and DSI connectors. However, we are planning to offer CSI cameras and DSI displays for the Nova as soon as possible. In the future, we hope to explore a converter board/cable to make Raspberry Pi CSI/DSI compatible with the Nova.

Can this device use Raspberry PI cameras?
