The HiKey960 Development Board is developed based on a Huawei Kirin960 SoC. The CPU architecture is constituted by the 4 ARM® Cortex®-A73 MPCore (big Core 4 2.4G Hz) + 4 Cortex-A53 MPCore(LITTLE Core 1.8G) working in the ARM big.LITTLE™ technology, and a high performance ARM Mali™-G71 MP8 3D GPU. It is also equipped with 3GB LPDDR4 – SDRAM memory and 32 GB UFS 2.0 storage, and supports Micro SD slot (SD3.0).

The HiKey960 development board is designed based on the Linaro 96Boards standard, with the standardized expansion interface I/O, display and cameras in the 96boards ecosystem.
