Class-Leading Performance

ROCK Pi 4 has a modern and powerful hexa-core ARM based processor, RK3399 inside, it offers significantly improved performance versus other popular SBC boards. All models are equipped with LPDDR4 3200Mb/s RAM and optional high performance eMMC modules, boost all applications.

Maker Friendly, IoT Connectivity

ROCK Pi 4 features maker friendly expansion options, including a 40-pin GPIO interface that allow for interfacing with a range inputs from buttons, switches, sensors, LEDs, and much more.

ROCK Pi 4 also features a Gbit LAN for network, with dedicated bus and controller, it works without latency under heavy load network applications. On board 802.11 ac wifi offers 2.4G & 5G WLAN connectivity. With Bluetooh 5.0, ROCK Pi 4 benefits improved Bluetooth speed and greater range.

ROCK Pi 4 also features one USB 3.0 host and one USB 3.0 OTG ports, each 5Gbps/s, working independently. The USB 3.0 OTG can work as USB device such as Android ADB or USB gadgets. A hardware switch is provided for OTG mode switch.

AI Capabilities

ROCK Pi 4 supports mainstream AI stack with GPU acceleration. Further more, a dedicated hardware NPU accelerator coming up next for ROCK Pi 4 will boosts complex Machine Learning algorithm and reduce the power.

Industrial standard MIPI CSI connector makes it easy to connect exsit cameras to ROCK Pi 4 and ROCK Pi 4 also supports industrial standard MIPI DSI for LCD and touch screen. With hardware accelerated algorithm, it's great for Computer Vision application, Robotics and much more.
