pcDuino3Nano Lite is a high performance, cost effective single board computer. It runs operation systems such as Ubuntu Linux and Android. pcDuino3Nano Lite has HDMI interface to output its graphic desktop screen. It could support multi-format 1080p 60fps video decoder and 1080p 30fps H.264 and MPEG4 video encoder with its built-in hardware video processing engine. It targets specially the fast growing demands from the open source community. pcDuino3Nano Lite provides easy-to-use tool chains and is compatible with the popular Arduino ecosystem such as Arduino Shields.
Note: The difference between pcDuino3Nano and pcDuino3Nano Lite is that pcDuino3 Nano lite has no flash and no IR receiver.
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The only two things the Lite does not have vs the Nano are: 1. Onboard flash. 2. IR Receiver (can be added in.)
Very fast and capable for such a little device.

Bad news: Most of the images for the pcDuino seem intended for the NAND-based models. It's troublesome to get up and running with any pcDuino compared to boards like the Raspberry PI, or any x86 system, but this board (and arguably other A20 boards) is more difficult than it really should be to get up and running. I've also had some trouble getting newer kernels working, with even newer kernels shipped by distributions failing, but this is likely a matter of trial-and-error to build a working kernel. (If this seems contradictory, then I'll note that running older kernels was fine, but the 4.x series seems troublesome on this board - by YMMV, it's likely PEBKAC - problem exists between keyboard and chair)
I do however have some negative comments, mostly directed at Linksprite's management of the OS and community. The recent Ubuntu image released in late December of 2015 has a few issues. When you attempt to (sudo apt-get) update and upgrade, there are dependencies issues especially pointing back to Linksprite hosted updates. At times I couldn't connect to their repository or their repository would slow to a crawl transfer wise (single Kbps, not even KBps). I've tried across multiple days and multiple different times, and about the only decent time I did manage to update and upgrade was very late Friday night in mountain time. I decided to scour the Linksprite site for support articles, and in the forums I found a few suggestions. However I was dismayed at some of the responses for support from their "Admin"s which squarely laid the lack of knowledge to the issue on the users shoulder. I can understand that to a certain extent, but I think a better approach to user engagement is necessary. If there is anything to be said about the success of a product, it's the community that grows around that said product. Linksprite has to do much more in terms of community support than the minimums they've accomplished so far to make this a highly successful product. While the raspberry 1B/2 may pale in comparison spec wise, the community around it is what makes it flourish. All that being said, if you have the tech gusto and savvy, this could be your board!
