Story

Introduction

Banana Pi BPI-M2 Berry is the open source hardware platform, Banana PI BPI-M2 Berry is a quad-core cortex -A7 CPU. You should use the Allwinner R40 design, it supports WIFI+BT on board and SATA interface on board.

Banana Pi BPI-M2 Berry series runs on Android, Debian Linux, Ubuntu Linux, Raspbian system and other OS.

Banana Pi PBI-M2 Berry hardware: Quad Core ARM Cortex A7,ARMv7 CPU, 2GB DDR3 SDRAM, all sizes are the same as Raspberry Pi 3.

Note: Pi-M2 Berry does not provide onboard eMMC flash support.

The Tech

The Banana PI BPI-M2 Berry with Gigabit Ethernet port can run Android smoothly. The size of Banana Pi BPI-M2 Berry is same as Banana Pi BPI-M64, supports 1080P video, the 40 pin GPIO header is pin-compatible with Raspberry Pi.

The new BPI-M2 Berry is a tiny little computer with great big ambitions. The expandable single-board device runs either Linux or Android and features impressive specs that outshine comparable products by a substantial margin. Highlights include a quad-core ARMv7 processor, a Mali 400 MP2 GPU, and support for 1080P ultra high-definition video.
