High Performance ARM System-on-Chip
The Marvell ARMADA® 388 is a robust energy-efficient System on Chip (SoC) with very powerful processing abilities especially suited for headless data processing, networking and storage. This Dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU clocked at 1.8 Ghz integrates a Cryptographic and XOR DMA engines to provides the best level of performance for NAS functionality.
4 x SATA 3.0 Ports
The only ARM based board on the market that offers 4x SATA 3.0 ports. This is the key feature that makes this platform the first single board computer specially designed for Network Attached Storage. Enjoy up to 40TB of storage (4x Disk of 10TB) while insuring enough throughput to share your data across your entire home or small office network.
Size: 100 mm x 100 mm
1GB to 2Gb DDR3L Memory
Choose the right amount of DDR3L memory for your applications, from a perfect 1GB to a generous 2GB.
2 x USB 3.0 POrts
Connect external storages and enjoy lighting speed to transfer data from or to your hard drives. Or connect a WiFi dongle to make Helios4 wireless.

We Believe in Open Source
The Helios4 was from the start a project by community for the community.
Open source software
Because simply this project wouldn't even exist without all the amazing projects out there, any of our software contribution will of course be published on our Github.
open source hardware
We hope people will adopt our platform and make it their own therefore all hardware details along with schematics will be available on our Wiki page.
