Size 3 Linux Tibbo Project PCB (LTPP3), Gen.2

Size3 Tibbo Project PCB

LTPP3(G2) is a Linux-based Tibbo Project PCB belonging to the Tibbo Project System (TPS) line. The board is based on a powerful quad-core 1GHz Cortex-A7 Plus1 (SP7021) CPU jointly developed by Sunplus and Tibbo.

LTPP3(G2) features a powerful set of IO ports located directly on the board: Dual Ethernet ports allow daisy-chaining the board with other Ethernet devices. There are also dual host USB ports, an HDMI port, and a uSD slot. A socket for an optional 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth/BLE 5.0 add-on is provided as well. The board incorporates a power supply with an 8~60V input range, thus eliminating the need for power Tibbits.

Offering 4 tiles for a total of 8 Tibbit module and 8 Tibbit connector sockets, the LTPP3(G2) can be used to create TPS configurations with up to four full serial ports, up to 16 relays, or up to 32 control lines, such as opto-inputs, PWMs, or open-collector outputs.

LTPP3(G2) can be used as a bare board or assembled into a size 3 Tibbo Project Box (TPB3). It also serves as the evaluation board for our Plus1 (SP7021) chip.

The LTPP3(G2) is supported by our Online Configurator.* The configurator allows defining custom TPS systems, which can then be ordered from our online store.*

The board comes with Tibbo OS for Linux (LTiOS) and Node.js preinstalled.*
