Libre Computer’s new AML-A311D-CC Alta is a single-board computer with an Amlogic A311D hexa-core processor with an integrated neural processing unit (NPU) for hardware-accelerated AI and Raspberry Pi-compatible connectors including a 40-pin GPIO header and 22-pin MIPI-DSI and MIPI-CSI display and camera connectors.

The AML-A311D-CC Alta is up for pre-order from LoverPi, where you can reserve a model with 4GB of RAM for $60. The little computer should begin shipping to customers on November 24, 2023.

At the heart of the computer is an Amlogic A311D processor, which features:

  • CPU: 4 x ARM Cortex-A72 cores @ up to 2.2 GHz, 2 x Cortex-A53 cores @ up to 1.8 GHz
  • GPU: Mali-G52 quad-core
  • NPU: 5 TOPS AI performance

The board features LPDDR4X memory, 16MB of SPI NOR Flash storage, an eMMC 5 connector for optional onboard storage, and a microSD card reader for removable storage.

Ports include:

  • 4 x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • 1 x USB Type-C
  • 1 x HDMI 2.1
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio
  • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet

You can use the USB Type-C port for power and data, but the board also supports PoE (Power Over Ethernet). There’s also an IR receiver that allows you to use a remote control with the board.

Libre Computer says performance should be similar to the company’s ROC-RK3328-CC Renegade system, which has a Rockchip RK33288 processor. That model is cheaper, but has fewer USB 3.0 ports and lacks an NPU.

  1. Add USB type c and nvme for speed,performance, energy efficiency, etc. For portable mini keyboard, battery pack support needed…..

  2. I don’t see how the performance wouldn’t be a lot better than the Renegade board considering it has only four A53 cores at 1.4GHz. You are getting more than just a an extra USB 3.0 port and NPU.

    1. it actually is a lot better, but shhh don’t tell them that. let them think it’s just junk and sell it for cheap.

  3. Instead of the old USB 3, he should add 1 LAN port and the device would gain more functionality.
