ubieTech’s latest single-board computer is a developer board with an octa-core processor, support for Android and Linux software, and a $99 price tag.

The Cubieboard 5 (also known as the CubieTruck Plus) is now available from a number of retailers for about $99.


Features of this board include:

  • Allwinner H8 octa-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor
  • PowerVR SGX 544 graphics
  • 2GB of RAM
  • HDMI and DisplayPort
  • S/PDIF and headset audio jacks
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0
  • two USB host ports
  • SATA 2.0 interface
  • microSD card reader
  • IR sensor

There’s also a connector for an optional lithium battery, allowing you to use the board as a mobile device, and CubieTech says the system can power dual displays thanks to the inclusion of both HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.

In addition to supporting SATA hard drives, Cubieboard offers a RAID subboard for connecting multiple storage devices.

Developer-friendly features include a Uboot key, UART and SPI pins, and other connectors.
