H6-based SBC from PINE64. Two models exist, a discontinued Model A, and the replacement Model B.
There is a pine cone like logo on the top silk screen, also it says "Pine H64" under the logo. Also on the SoC there is a quite prominent "H6" print.
The board has two variants, Model A and Model B. Model A has the same size with a Pine A64+ and is equipped with a PCIe slot; Model B dropped the slot, and has the form factor of an RPi model B. The Model A variant has been discontinued and is no longer sold. It has been superseded by the Model B.
The board has various revisions, many of them are engineering samples, only two revisions will be the final edition, one model A and one model B.
On the back of the device, the following is printed:
Designed in Silicon Valley, California. Built in Silicon Delta, China.
For the first ES revision of Model A, The PCB has the following silkscreened on it (This revision is quite rare, and when you see it usually it will have a jumper wire because of a fault when designing the power circuit for LPDDR3.):
For the second ES revision of Model A, The PCB has the following silkscreened on it:
For the first ES revision of Model B, The PCB has the following silkscreened on it:
At least one revision of Model B has the following silkscreened on it:
Currently shipping Model B units (as of 2019-12-30) have the following silkscreen:
Work on H6 has just started, basic support for H6 and PineH64 will be in Linux 4.17
A beta version of the H6 BSP was released on 2018/01/30...
You can build things for yourself by following our Manual build howto and by choosing from the configurations available below.
Use the MANUFACTURER_DEVICE build target.
Use the pine_h64_defconfig (supported since v2018.09) build target.
Use the MANUFACTURER_DEVICE.fex file.
Use the sun50i-h6-pine-h64.dtb device-tree binary.
Tips, Tricks, Caveats
Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE specific tips, tricks, Caveats and nice to have changes here.
The something button triggers FEL mode.
Device specific topic
If there are no further device specific topics to add, remove these sections.
Adding a serial port
This section explains how to attach a serial port to the device. Make sure it refers to our UART howto. For a development board, you can just mention how to find the header with the pins and include a picture, and you can remove the warranty voiding warning.
Locating the UART
Describe how to find the RX,TX,GND signals here, and mention the UART howto.
