Banana Pi

What is Banana Pi?
 
Banana Pi is a single-board computer.  Banana Pi targets to be a cheap, small and flexible enough computer for daily life.  Built with ARM Cortex-A7 Dual-core CPU and Mali400MP2 GPU, and open source software, Banana Pi can serve as a platform to make lots of applications for different purposes.
Banana PI M1 is the open source hardware platform which published to assistant the Elastos open source OS, Banana PI M1 is the dual core Android 4.2 product which better than the Raspberry Pi. Banana Pi M1 series run Android,Debian linux,Ubuntu linux, Raspberry Pi imange and cubieboard imange. Banana PI hardware: 1Ghz ARM7 dual-core processor, 1GB DDR3 SDRAM, Banana PI with Gigabit ethernet port, SATA Socket. It can run with Android 4.2.2 smoothly. The size of Banana PI M1 like the credit card, it can easily run with the game it support 1080P high definition video output, the GPIO compatible with Raspberry Pi and can run the ROM Image directly

Interface compatibility

Description

Banana Pi

Performance

CPU performance

Faster A20 CPU

ARM Cortex-A7 Dual-Core 1GHz

Memory Performance

More Memory

1GB DDR3 SDRAM (shared with GPU)

SD card Performance

Storage is only really limited by SATA

SD (Max. 64GB) / MMC onboard

IDE performance

Has SATA interfaces there is no limit

Hard disk drive (Large hard drives storage )

Network performance

Faster Ethernet port 1G

10/100/1000 on A20 not Shares

USB performance

USB 2.0 ports

2 on A20 (not shared) so it is faster

Interface boards availability

 

All Raspberry Pi boards should work

Operating system compatibility

Android, Lubuntu, Raspbian, Kali Linux, openSUSE, fedora 1.1, Arch Linux 1.1

 

Video output

Support HDMI 1.4 better

HDMI 1.4, composite RGBCVBS , LVDS on board

Power consumption

   

GPIO(2X13) pin

GPIO, UART, I2C bus, SPI bus with two chip selects, CAN bus, ADC, PWM, +3.3v, +5v, ground.

 

Power consumption

5V (2A)  

(not the most economical)

LED. 

Power Status LED (Red). Ethernet Status LED (Blue). User Define LED (Green).

 

Overall experience

   

Ok we have the overall picture lets decide on the operating system

OS Images  For Banana Pi: http://www.bananapi.com/index.php/download?layout=edit&id=29

OS

Description

Android 4.4 (Beta 1)  

 

Android 4.2.2

 

Lubuntu  3.1

My choice due to most of my exiting servers is Ubuntu

Raspbian 3.1

This is good choice if you want to use the ad don Raspberry Pi features and functions such as spi, i2c , pwm and so on

Kali Linux 1.0

 

openSUSE 1.1

 

fedora 1.1

 

Arch Linux 1.1

 

Now let me create my boot SD card.

down Lubuntu  3.1 from here http://www.bananapi.com/index.php/download?layout=edit&id=29

Looking at the Con3 26-pin general-purpose input-output (GPIO) header at the top-left of the board, which is pin-compatible with existing Pi accessories

J11 (UART)

  The jumper J11 is the UART interface.  For developers of Banana Pi, this is an easy way to get the UART console output to check the system status and log message.
