This page needs to be properly filled according to the New Device Howto and the New Device Page guide.

The MarsBoard was a short-lived, credit-card sized, extendable board with an Allwinner A20 SoC. It is an update of the MarsBoard A10.

A new device by the same manufacturer is confusingly also called Marsboard A20. It is a completely different design though, with a SOM and a baseboard. This newer board is not documented on this page.

Tips, Tricks, Caveats

FEL mode

A button right next to the SATA connector triggers FEL mode.

Adding a serial port

240px UART pads

On the P2 header, pins 64, 65 and 66 are ground, TX and RX, respectively. Either solder on some leads, or insert some pins according to our UART howto. Be warned though, this is a 2.0mm pitch connector, and not the usual 2.54mm.
