The Banana Pi BPI-W3 is a router based development board, it design with Rochchip RK3588 quad ARM Cortex-A76 and quad Cortex-A55 consists of an eight-core CPU processor. ,6Tops@INT8 NPU,8G memory,32G eMMC storage on board .which can run on a variety of open source operating systems including OpenWrt, Android, and linux. It has 1 Gigabit LAN ports, 1 Gigabit WAN., it also with 2 HDMI out and 1 HDMI in port.

Really like the look of that board for all sorts of low energy server based applications.
Please ditch the onboard switches and just plain old jumpers that can also be wired switches like a server mobo.
If its at the right price that is definitely looking like a great server board with many applications.
I guess only hardware is available for internal testing yet. There are some patches on mailinglist for rk3588,afair ethernet too (they should not differ much from rk356x). So i see no big problem here…compared to mtk boards gmacs are 1g only (not bad here because only 1 port per gmac).
as far as i found out there are 2 variants of rk3588…one rk3588S with only pcie2 and one rk3588 (without letter) having pcie3x4 which seems the case here…so we need support in pcie3 driver for rk3588…imho it was partially available (but had not tested it due missing hardware) and maybe needs only compatible (which afair i have removed when sending driver upstream).
Do you know what software do I need to inspect the schematics of the Banana pi BPI-W3 ?
In particular I’m interested in how to view the schematics of the carrier board and the pinout of the stamp board (core)
