PcDuino4 Nano

The pcDuino4 Nano is an Allwinner H3 based ARM board. It is only two thirds the size of the Raspberry Pi. It is open source. It works with Ubuntu MATE, Debian and etc. The pcDuino4 Nano uses the Allwinner H3 Soc. It integrates Ethernet, IR receiver, video/audio output and supports HDMI and AVOUT. It can be powered via the MicroUSB port In such a small board it still integrates rich interfaces and ports. Besides the popular HDMI, Ethernet, USB-Host, USB-OTG, DVP camera interface and AVOUT (audio and video) it has an onboard Microphone, IR receiver, a serial debug port and a Raspberry Pi compatible 40 pin GPIO pin header.

    I have one here that I purchased at Micro Center. I like the design and that it is a cheaper competitor to the Pi, with a couple extra options. Good work on it. For a couple dollars, I ordered a 3 piece Pi heatsink kit from eBay. With the heatsinks installed, it did a kernel recompile without heat issues.

    .... so, do you have any designs for a 3D printable case? I would like to find a STL file, rather than spend several hours with a dial caliper and Tinkercad.
