AML-S805X-AC (La Frite)

La Frite is a miniaturized hardware platform based on Le Potato limited to 1080P sharing most of the software infrastructure. It supports the latest Android 9/TV, upstream Linux, u-boot, Kodi, and more. Based on a long term supported SoC family with a proven record of mass deployments by the largest regional content providers, AML-S805X-AC is the perfect development platform for projects that require highly performant ARM Cortex-A class CPUs, small compact form factor, secure and non-secure 1080P media delivery and playback, high reliability, and low power.

Libre Computer is the only solutions provider with key expertise in both hardware design and upstream free-open-source software (FOSS) stack for Amlogic's GXL SoC family including S805X, S905D, S905W, S905X, and S912. This SoC family features the Amlogic Video Engine 10 (AVE10) capable of handling H.265, H.264, and VP9 streams with HDR metadata making it ideal for digital signage on mainline Linux and the latest Android 9.0 Pie.
