Libre Computer Introduces the Linux-ready Open Source La Frite SBC
Libre Computer Project’s La Frite development board is based on the Raspberry Pi A+ but has a different layout and more real-world ports than the A+, although it offers a similar 40-pin expansion header.
LCP’s La Frite is the miniature version of the company’s flagship Potato SBC, equipped with a quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 SoC, with a Mali-450 GPU (2 geometry/3 pixel), up to 1Gb of DDR4 RAM, and 128Mb SPI NOR. Rounding the board out is HDMI 4.1 (1080p out), 100Mb Ethernet, USB 2.0 Host/OTG, IR sensor, and a 40-pin GPIO header.
The eventually open-spec La Frite, which has already surpassed its $10K Kickstarter goal, starts at just $10 or $15 for models with 512MB or 1GB DDR4, respectively. Fully decked out models with 8GB eMMC, HDMI cable, and a 2.5A power supply with LED and power button go for $30 or $35. Shipments are due in November.
You can take a look at the detailed specifications of La Frite below:
- Quad 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU Cores at 1.2GHz
- 2 Geometry + 3 Pixel ARM Mali-450 GPU Cores
- 512MB or 1GB DDR4 @ 2400MHz
- 128Mb SPI NOR
- HDMI 1.4 with 1080P Output
- 100Mb Fast Ethernet
- USB 2.0 Host
