General

What's the difference between ROCK 3A and 3B?
3A and 3B comes in different form factor, 3A is credit card size while 3B is 2.5inch SBC, gives more features and provides other advantages such as heat dispatching. Check hardware revision page for the detail difference.
Why doesn't ROCK 3A boot ?
Check the following one by one.
  • Power supply
    • The ROCK 3 is powered by Type-C port and has a wide range of input voltage, from 9V to 21V. ROCK 3 supports USB Type-C PD 2.0 with 9V/2A, 12V/2A, 15V/2A and 20V/2A. Besides, the Pi supports QC 3.0/2.0 with 9V/2A and 12V/1.5A. The Type-C cable you using needs to support data communication. We call it USB Type-C charging data cable.
  • Short-circuit the FSPI_CLK pin and GND pin to make SPI Nor flash unavailable.

Please note that you should short-circuit pin#1 and pin#2 always when spi nor flash is not used. Like the yellow left hat.
