Banana Pi, and the recently announced Banana Pro, are Android & Linux development boards based on Allwinner A20, with a form factor similar to Raspberry Pi Model B and B+ boards respectively. A new revision of the board is now available with Banana Pi M2 powered by Allwinner A31s quad core processor, and in a form factor similar to R-Pi B+.
The new Banana Pi M2 features built in Wi-Fi, and boost a Quadocore Allwiner A31 Processor based on the Cortex A7 Architecture, but no longer supports a SATA hard drive.



Banana Pi M2 specifications:

  • SoC – Allwinner A31s quad core Cortex A7 @ 1.0 GHz with PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3
  • Storage –  Micro SD slot up to 64GB
  • Connectivity – 10/100/1000 Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi  (Realtek)
  • Video Output –  HDMI, CVBS, and LVDS/RGB header
  • Audio Output – HDMI and 3.5mm stereo jack
  • Camera – CSI connector
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host ports + micro USB port (power only)
  • Debugging – UART pins for serial console
  • Expansion Header – 40-pin R-Pi “somewhat” compatible header with 2×13 UART, I2C bus, SPI bus, CAN bus, ADC, PWM, 3.3V, 5V, ground
  • Misc – IR Receiver, power, reboot and reset buttons.
  • Power Supply – 5V in via MicroUSB (DC in only)
  • Dimensions – 92x60mm (R-Pi B+: 85×56 mm)
  • Weight – 48 grams
  • Temperature Range – -15 to 75 C

Albeit similar, components placement and board dimensions are not exactly the same as on the Raspberry Pi B+, as are mounting holes, so it may not be compatible with Hats expansion boards, and other R-Pi accessories. The board will run Android 4.2, Firefox OS, and Linux distributions,
