What is Khadas VIM3

This SBC comes in two variants.

  1. VIM3 Basic with 2GB RAM and 16GB eMMC
  2. VIM3 Pro with 4GB RAM and 32GB eMMC

Both variants come with 2x Wi-Fi antennas. VIM3 is a high-performance computing machine based on Amlogic A311D using 2x 1.8GHz Cortex A53 and 4x 2.2GHz Cortex A73. It generates fewer heat thanks to the fabrication process of 12nm SoC. VIM3 supports BT .50 and 2T2R AC Wi-Fi with RSDB. The Gbit Ethernet supports WOL. VIM3 can run heavy applications with the help of USB-C PD. It also features an 800MHz NPU (5.0 TOPS), up to 1536 MAC INT8 interface, and 512KB internal L2 cache with 1MB system workspace buffer. VIM3 supports Caffe, TensorFlow and other prominent deep learning frameworks. The design of Khadas VIM3 is stackable.

The KKSB Khadas VIM3 case has been designed to protect VIM3 delicately and reliably while elegantly dissipating the heat via the built-in heatsink.

Awesome design - but okaish final result

The design is very nice. I really like the metallic minimalistic appearance and shape. It really has its charme. But some points were not thought-out very well during manufacturing I gues. At first. The Khadas just doesn't fit the case. On the front and the back is so much space, so that it has to be placed somewhere in the middle to get in the screws. But as a result the ports are just to far away inside the case, which really doesn't look nice. There is no place planed for the antenas, but I could let it just lay one at the top of the board and one fitted still on the side. And last, there are rubber studs for not scratching surfaces with the screws. And the screws really stand out very much and are really scratchy. But you can not place the rubber studs on top of the screws. And because of the positions of the screws, you cannot position the rubber studs symmetric on every corner, so it is required to just place them somewhere on the bottom.I really like how the buttons have been made. A cover for the pins at the top would be nice also. I still use it and because I wanted to have a premium looking minimalistic case for the khadas and thats what I get. And it would be fine for a lower price. But in fact you get a good design and high quality material. But not a well thought-out product.

Quality case

The case is a very well made, high quality case with tolerances suited perfectly for the board. One could only wish for a solution that also includes external ruoting for WiFi antenna, and (or in a variant of this case) that fits a VIM setup including the new mx extension board with possibly modem antenna slot additionally.

Needs changes made

Needs a few changes made for the wifi antennas, also if you made the heat block a few MM longer twards the middle of the case, then it can be used for more then just the VIM3, im curently using it on my VIM1 now with a copper shim because the VIM1 has a single wifi antenna and i drilled a hole threw the case for the antenna plate

Beautiful case, but still a work in progress.

The case is impressive in appearance. The Power, Function and Reset buttons work well and having them labeled is a nice touch. The only current drawback is the corner where the IR receiver & LEDs are supposed show through window in the wifi antenna. Because hole for the screw that goes there is smoothly integrated into the case, there is not enough room to slide the antenna toward the corner as in the Khadas DIY case. This leaves the two LEDs hidden behind the antenna.

Wifi speed is impressive and the VIM3 runs cool and silent. I used it for a little over 3 hours and the case got only slightly warm.
