RS Group’s single board computer development and manufacturing unit OKdo is now working with Rockchip vendor Radxa on a range of SBC systems using Radxa’s ROCK designs. It’s an interesting partnership, giving Raxda access to OKdo’s experience in at-scale manufacturing and to its global support channels.

The intent of the new partnership is to give engineers the tools they need to build products around Radxa’s designs, while still supporting a maker community and students looking for a powerful, low-cost computing platform. As well as OKdo’s own support services, ROCK is supported through Radxa’s own online community tools.
