In the month of October 2022, Pine64 lab announced the Ox64 – a $6 and $8 RISC-V, Linux capable single board computer and the wait  is over. Ox64 is available now for purchase. In this blog post, we will go over the specifications and features of Pine64 Ox64 SBC.

The Pine64 Ox64 is a single-board computer that looks a lot like a Raspberry Pi Pico, But while Raspberry Pi’s tiny board is powered by an RP2040 microcontroller, the Ox64 has a dual-core RISC-V processor architecture, 64MB of embedded RAM, and support for up to 128Mb of flash storage  plus a microSD card for additional storage to pack a lot of computing power into a tiny space.

$6 version has 16Mb of flash storage and supports RTOS, while the $8 version has 128Mb plus a microSD card reader and support for Linux-based software. Overall, the little device blurs the lines between a microcontroller and a single-board computer. Buy Now from the Pine64 store or from store

There have been several Arm processors with built-in 64MB to 128MB memory from Allwinner in recent years, so it’s interesting to see Bouffalo Lab doing something similar with the BL808 RISC-V SoC. The BL808 is supported by an RTOS SDK, and Linux is being worked on. That’s why there are two SKUs for the Ox64 board, one with 16Mb flash suitable to run an RTOS and another one with 128Mb flash to run Linux.
