Under the [[SOPINE_Software_Release|'SOPINE Software and OS Image Download Section']] you can find a complete list of currently supported Operating System images that work with the SOPINE as well as other related software. The list includes OS images and descriptions of:
The '''PINE64-LTS''' is the long term supply version of the PINE A64 (+), ''PINE64's'' first single board computer, powered by Allwinner’s A64 quad-core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit SoC. There are many operating systems available for the PINE A64-LTS created by the open source community and various partner projects. The PINE A64-LTS is guaranteed to be supplied until the year 2025 at the very least.


[[SOPINE_Software_Release#Armbian|'''Armbian''']]
The '''SOPINE A64''' is a compute module powered by the same Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit Processor used in the PINE A64 with 2G LPDDR3 RAM memory, Power Management Unit, SPI Flash and integrated MicroSD Slot (for bootable OS images microSD card). The SOPINE module has a 5 years LTS (Long Term Supply) status, which means that it will be supplied to 2022 at the very least. There is a one year warranty period for the SOPINE module. This tiny compute module uses SODIMM-DDR3 form-factor and can be paired with either the Clusterboard, the Baseboard or a custom host PCB for industrial or other embedded applications. It is fully compatible with the PINE A64-LTS in terms of software support

The PINE A64-LTS
The SOPINE A64

The PINE64-LTS is the long term supply version of the PINE A64 (+), PINE64's first single board computer, powered by Allwinner’s A64 quad-core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit SoC. There are many operating systems available for the PINE A64-LTS created by the open source community and various partner projects. The PINE A64-LTS is guaranteed to be supplied until the year 2025 at the very least.

The SOPINE A64 is a compute module powered by the same Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit Processor used in the PINE A64 with 2G LPDDR3 RAM memory, Power Management Unit, SPI Flash and integrated MicroSD Slot (for bootable OS images microSD card). The SOPINE module has a 5 years LTS (Long Term Supply) status, which means that it will be supplied to 2022 at the very least. There is a one year warranty period for the SOPINE module. This tiny compute module uses SODIMM-DDR3 form-factor and can be paired with either the Clusterboard, the Baseboard or a custom host PCB for industrial or other embedded applications. It is fully compatible with the PINE A64-LTS in terms of software support

Software releases
