Rock64 LTS
#1
I read like "The ROCK64 4GB board designated as LTS (long Term Supply) model, PINE64 committed to supply at least for 5 years until year 2022 and beyond.", does it mean that Rock64 1GB or 2 GB not available for LTS?

Considering 0-70 deg C temperature range, with FCC and certificates, can we consider Rock64 4G LTS for product development instead of using them as hobby board? We want to roll out few industrial data acquisition products, which works with PLC within factories, mostly 20 to 60 Deg Range. I understand that there are various OS issues reported by community, but our use is not media playback, considering USB, Ethernet and UARTS working, we are more than happy.

i'd guess if the methods [communication protocol] and necessary physical ports [ number & type] are available and your software can maintain control suitable to your needs then you are good to go. also, i'd hope that pine64 could configure RAM to your likes but tllim is gonna be last word on that. good luck and if you get hooked up let us know how your systems are doing.

@dkryder,

We are considering Rock64, rather than Pine64, [Rockchip vs AllWinner], planned to use SP to UART and few native UARTS available. Looking at the pins, Rock64 is capable of 2 Ethernet, one is Gigabit, already configured, one on PI-5 pins.

Currently we only designate 4GB version as LTS. This decision due to the more variety that we commit, the heavier on the stock inventory commitment (some components we need to to acquired in batch).
