DongshanPI-D1s is a RISC-V Development Board for Less Than $20

Another RISC-V development system has become available — this time with an Allwinner D1s processor on board in a package designed to teach programming. The DongshanPI-D1s, brought to our attention by CNX-Software (opens in new tab), is for sale with its carrier board on AliExpress (opens in new tab) for less than $20.

Compared to something like a Raspberry Pi 4 (opens in new tab), the 100ask-designed DongshanPI-D1s is a little light in the specs department — but it’s also much smaller and cheaper. The Allwinner D1s features a single XuanTie C906 64-bit RISC-V core clocked at 1GHz, with just 64MB of DDR2 RAM. There’s also 16MB of flash storage and it’s allegedly powerful enough to encode and decode 1080p video at 60fps (though the encoding appears to be limited to Motion JPEG).
