The Allwinner A31 chip is an inexpensive quad-core processor based on a low-power ARM Cortex-A7 design. It just started shipping in the past few months, and so far it’s mostly been used for inexpensive Android tablets.

Now there’s also a set-top-box featuring the Allwinner A31 chip.

D108A

It’s called the DH108A and it’s being marketed at Alibaba by a company called D&H Technology. Unfortunately there’s no word on how much it will sell for just yet.

What we do know is that the device runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and features 2GB of RAM, 8GB to 16GB of storage, and 802.11n WiFi. It also has a 10/100 Ethernet jack, and 4 full-sized USB ports.

It supports HDMI output and comes with an HDMI cable so you can hook the DH108A up to a television and run Android apps on a large screen.

There are certainly faster ARM-based quad-core processors than the Allwinner A31. But it’s a relatively inexpensive chip that should offer decent performance for HD video playback thanks to the PowerVR SGX544 graphics core.
