Forlinx SoM features Rockchip RK3588 Octa-core processor

Dec 14, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 2,529 views

Forlinx released this week the FET3588-C System-on-Module based on the octa-core Rockchip 3588 which also integrates the Arm Mali-G610 MP4 GPU and a 6 TOPs NPU. Forlinx is also offering a dev. board to get access to peripherals as dual GbE LAN ports, multiple display interfaces, PCIe slots and optional wireless connectivity.  

The FET3588-C SoM uses the same processor as other embedded devices seen earlier this year (i.e. QuartzPro64, Banana Pi BPI-W3). 


  • Rockchip RK3588 — Quad-core Cortex-A76 (up to 2.4 GHz),  Quad-core Cortex-A55 cores (up to 1.8 GHz); Arm Mali-G610 MP4 GPU; 6 TOPS NPU

The standard board-to-board connector offers up to 4×100 pins offering access to up to 16x PWM,8x ADC in, 9x I2C, 5x SPI, 10x UART and even 3x CAN bus. 

The FET3588-C is compatible with the OK3588-C development board that provides access to the peripherals and interfaces mentioned earlier. See the image below for more info.

The product page also specified that this product supports Android, Ubuntu and other Linux OSes.

Further information

The FET3588-C SoM seems to be available on AliExpress for ~$190.00. The development kit sells for $250.82 (Correction, the link above for the Dev Kit is for the 3568 SoC, not the 3588 SoC and it’s from a reseller, not Forlinx’s official store). The official product page can be found on
