The SOQuartz is a new system on module (SoM) with a Rockchip SoC and an AI accelerator. The board will be compatible with existing PINE64 Quartz64 boards and the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4.

PINE64 has announced a new system on module (SoM), and one that is compatible with the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (CM4). The company states that the SOQuartz could be used as a CM4 carrier board, although it has an SoC itself.

Specifically, PINE64 has included a Rockchip RK3566, which has four ARM Cortex-A55 cores, an ARM Mali-G52 GPU and an NPU that supports up to 0.8 TOPS for AI acceleration. Additionally, the board has 128 Mbit SPI flash, 2 GB to 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and an optional eMMC module ranging from 16 GB to 128 GB.

Moreover, the device has a built-in Bluetooth/Wi-Fi module and supports HDMI 2.0, USB, Ethernet, PCIe and SATA III, among other connections. There is also a 28-pin GPIO and four M2.5 mounting holes.

PINE64 states that the SOQuartz will support Android and Linux distributions via its Quartz64 single-board computers. The company is yet to set a date for releasing the SOQuartz yet, though.
