The '''Quartz64''' is the most recent Single Board Computer offering from PINE64, initially released in June of 2021. It is powered by a Rockchip RK3566 Quad-Core ARM Cortex A55 64-Bit Processor with a MALI G-52 GPU.
  
 
Key features include a PCIe x4 open ended slot (model A) or m.2 (model B) using one Gen2 lane electrically, and the use of LPDDR4 RAM.

The Quartz64 has three LPDDR4 system memory options: 2GB, 4GB or 8GB. For booting, there is a 128Mb SPI boot Flash, an eMMC module socket (supporting up to 128GB) and microSD slot. The board is equipped with 1x USB 3.0 type A Host, 3x USB 2.0 Host, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA (model A), GPIO Bus, MiPi DSI interface, e-ink interface (model A), eDP interface (model A), touch Panel interface (model A), MiPi CSI interface, as well as many other device interfaces such as UART, SPI, I<sup>2</sup>C, for makers to integrate with sensors and other peripherals. Many different Operating Systems (OS) are freely available from the open source community, such as Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Arch), BSD, and Android.

The PCIe implementation on the RK3566 is much more compatible with a wide range of devices compared to the one on the RK3399 used on the ROCKPro64. This means a lot more devices should work (excluding dGPUs due to a lack of cache snooping ability). As an example, PCIe-to-PCI bridges work, whereas they didn't on the ROCKPro64.

=== "Model A" Acrylic Case Doesn't Fit ===
 +
 +
The Quartz64 does not really fit onto the bottom plate of the [["Model A" Acrylic Open Enclosure]]. This is because the "Mic" connector at the bottom of the board interferes with one of the posts. A workaround is to find out which post that is (you have a 50% chance of guessing it right, accounting for rotating the board) and then filing away the corner of the post pointing inwards by a few millimetres.
 +
 +
An alternate solution may be to place plastic spacers with a smaller outer diameter in between the acrylic bottom plate posts and the SBC board.

The Quartz64 Model B

The Quartz64 is the most recent Single Board Computer offering from PINE64, initially released in June of 2021. It is powered by a Rockchip RK3566 Quad-Core ARM Cortex A55 64-Bit Processor with a MALI G-52 GPU.

Key features include a PCIe x4 open ended slot (model A) or m.2 (model B) using one Gen2 lane electrically, and the use of LPDDR4 RAM.

The Quartz64 has three LPDDR4 system memory options: 2GB, 4GB or 8GB. For booting, there is an eMMC module socket (supporting up to 128GB) and microSD slot, as well as a footprint to solder on an SPI flash chip. The board is equipped with HDMI, 1x USB 3.0 type A Host, 3x USB 2.0 Host, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA (model A), GPIO Bus, MiPi DSI interface, e-ink interface (model A), eDP interface (model A), touch Panel interface (model A), MiPi CSI interface, as well as many other device interfaces such as UART, SPI, I2C, for makers to integrate with sensors and other peripherals. Many different Operating Systems (OS) are freely available from the open source community, such as Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Arch), BSD, and Android.

Software releases

Warning: Software for the Quartz64 is still early in development, and therefore currently lacks features such as the ability to produce video output. You are strongly encouraged to procure a 3.3V UART serial adapter capable of running at 1.5 mbauds, such as the woodpecker if you want to use a Quartz64 at this stage.

The PCIe implementation on the RK3566 is much more compatible with a wide range of devices compared to the one on the RK3399 used on the ROCKPro64. This means a lot more devices should work (excluding dGPUs due to a lack of cache snooping ability). As an example, PCIe-to-PCI bridges work, whereas they didn't on the ROCKPro64.

Combo PHYs

Several of the I/O options on the RK3566 used in the Quartz64 are multiplexed, meaning that they cannot be used at the same time. The above diagram illustrates how they are connected.

In particular, USB 3.0 and the SATA connector on the board are mutually exclusive, and the PCI-e 2.0 lane can be reconfigured into a second SATA port, though an adapter cable needs to be fashioned for this to be useful.

Android 11 eink SDK for Quart64 model A SBC


Enclosures

All enclosures that fit the ROCKPro64 should fit the Quartz64, as the I/O has been laid out the same on purpose.

(Please expand this section with more cases known to work.)


Troubleshooting

Stability/Boot Issues With Missing Battery Shunt

If there is no battery plugged into the board, the jumper labelled "ON/OFF_BATT" must be in place. If this is set wrong, stability issues such as failures to boot will occur.

No Ethernet Connectivity

Make sure the kernel is built with CONFIG_MOTORCOMM_PHY set to y. Building it as a module (m) and then relying on module auto-loading is unlikely to work as the PHY chip lacks its manufacturer ID.

"Model A" Acrylic Case Doesn't Fit

The Quartz64 does not really fit onto the bottom plate of the "Model A" Acrylic Open Enclosure. This is because the "Mic" connector at the bottom of the board interferes with one of the posts. A workaround is to find out which post that is (you have a 50% chance of guessing it right, accounting for rotating the board) and then filing away the corner of the post pointing inwards by a few millimetres.

An alternate solution may be to place plastic spacers with a smaller outer diameter in between the acrylic bottom plate posts and the SBC board.
