A RISC-V Soldering Iron Running an Open Firmware

The Pinecil is a smart mini portable soldering iron with a 32-bit RISC-V SoC featuring a sleek design, auto standby and it heats up to an operating temperature in just 12 seconds when paired with a sufficiently powerful power supply unit – such as the PinePower. It runs a community built firmware that is simple to update and altered to your use-case need. We offer a wide selection of tips for the Pinecil in the Pine Store, so the soldering iron is ready to aid you in whatever projects you’re about to undertake.
