NanoPi - high computing power
FriendlyElec decided to meet the expectations of embedded systems users, challenging such well-known products as Arduino, Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone. NanoPi is another interesting alternative among single board minicomputers. The latest M4 model has built-in 4 GB DDR3 RAM and ARM architecture Rockchip RK3399 SoC, which combines dual dual processors - dual-core Cortex-A72 clocked at 2.0 GHz and quad-core Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.5 GHz.
NanoPi - advantages of a compact device
Just like other minicomputers available on the market, also NanoPi M4 is equipped with a set of necessary connectors enabling cooperation with external devices. Among them, there is Ethernet module socket with throughput of 1 Gbit/s, four USB 3.0 connectors, HDMI connector, TRS 3.5 mm analog connector for audio devices, CSI and DSI connectors for connecting camera modules, and SATA connectors for connecting hard drives. A fan overlay can also be connected to the board for active cooling. As with other platforms for embedded systems, you'll also find connectivity modules via dual-band wi-fi and Bluetooth, as well as 24- and 40-pin GPIO connectors supporting communication via UART, SPI and I2C protocols. The NanoPi M4 can run on Lubuntu and Android systems.
Practical NanoPi NEO starter kits & accessories
Thinking about users who start their adventure with embedded systems, we have prepared an offer of starter kits of NanoPi series. In such a set you will find the board with NanoPi NEO computer, heatsink with thermoinsulating tape and mounting screws, USB to micro USB cable, NanoHat OLED overlay, microSD memory card and a user manual to help you run the minicomputer for the first time. The NanoPi board can run on both u-boot and UbuntuCore systems. NanoPi requires 5V power supply delivered by power adapter with micro USB plug. We also offer overlay modules dedicated for NanoPi.
