i have a idea. Why not to install a hdmi -> lvds bridge directly to the orange board? cheap rtd2660 or adv7610(1) orr tsumv29 or other. building of embedded terminals become much easie.
(with standard dip connector as on scaler boads, with step 2mm. not a flat cable)

Because SoC with LVDS exist and it makes no sense to use HDMI to LVDS bridge? http://linux-sunxi.or ...

a soc is not a board with soc + memory + Lan + USBs + GPIO ports + workable Linux and other software. can you make a complete board from soc by yourself?
can you port Linux & drivers by yourself after making the board by yourself?

if you can do this, show please a working board maid by you from soc a33 and if it works (and looks) good and costs as orange pi 2/pc i will buy your board.

but you can connect the a LCD matrix by LVDS easily.
and you can install different Linuxes and soft already ported to orange pi without any changes.

other reason - the documentation to different soc is not very complete and good. using popular hdmi -> lvds bridges you will remove the problem with resolution, as you can configure the scaler chip to a LCD resolution on LVDS independed to the resolution on HDMI.

using a well known, described and discussed hdmi->lvds you will do you life much easy.
for example for ADV7611 (docs, reference schematics, forum, etc):
https://ez.analog.com/docs/DOC-1745 (https://ez.analog.com/docs/DOC-1867)
https://ez.analog.com/community/ ... se&tags=adv7611

i think 1 additional small chip is simpler and cheaper then porting a linux drivers to other mostly undocumented SoC.

and no problems to connect to any lvds/rgb lcds. i think you should try this yourself.

sorry for many-words, but I think the benefit of this solution is obvious.
for us, users.
and for manufacturers as Orange Pi can be used not only as a toy. and this means more sales.

Can anybody reveal information on OPI Zero? I'm interested in SoC, RAM, hardware interfaces (USB, microSD slot, etc.)...

I'm guessing a very bare board with H3, 512MB of ram.
They will probably cut ethernet, CSI, all normal usbs, power switch, gpios. They will leave one otg, hdmi (or even mini hdmi), sdcard slot and power. Everything else could end up available via unpopulated pins.

Looks good. Hope it will be available soon. Want to try it out. Especially the Gigabit ethernet in combination with 2G memory is a strong combination.

Also good news the SATA connection is dropped, since it has no value using a slow USB-SATA bridge.
