Starting point for PineBook Pro Docking station

Description

The PineBook Pro's docking station was custom designed for both physical dimensions and ports to compliment the PineBook Pro laptop. It has been tested on several disparate platforms and seems to be fully compatible with Android, Windows, ChromeOS, and GNU/Linux. It may be compatible with Apple systems, but this has yet to be documented.

  • USB 3.0 Ports x3
  • USB-C Ports 3x
  • 4K @ 30fps HDMI x1
  • 1080P VGA x1

OS Compatibility

Hardware Tests

Acer Aspire e15

Note that machine lacks USB-C video. Tested with both Windows 10 and Gentoo GNU/Linux. Every device functions properly with the exception of the microphone jack. In Linux, the jack will only function with its volume set at or above 98 in alsamixer. This is uncomfortably loud. 8/10 for compatibility.

Samsung Chromebook Plus V2

Everything functions perfectly, with the exception of Ethernet, which was not tested. 9/10.

Google Pixel 4a

Note that the machine lacks USB-C video. Using android version 11. Video and Ethernet were not tested. Everything else functioned properly. 8/10.
