GPIO connection

Is the GPIO available instead of using the micro USB? Will it work with the current Tinkerboard or Raspberry image?

The header is an experimental thing for additional power only. If the board you're using is efficient enough, it may be possible to power it via the header.

Neither the Tinkerboard nor Pi3 provide USB over the header, so there is no replacement for the microUSB connection.
