NanoPi 2 board, based on Samsung S5P4418 quad core Cortex A9 processor with WiFi and Bluetooth, has now gotten a brother, called Nano Pi 2 Fire, with wireless connectivity replaced by Gigabit Ethernet, and a power management IC (PMIC) for software power-off, sleep and wakeup.
NanoPi 2 Fire specifications:
- SoC – Samsung S5P4418 quad core Cortex A9 processor @ up to 1.4GHz
- System Memory – 1GB 32bit DDR3
- Storage – 1x Micro SD Slot
- Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet port
- Video Output / Display I/F- 1x HDMI 1.4a, 0.5 mm pitch SMT FPC seat for full-color LCD (RGB: 8-8-8)
- Camera – 24-pin DVP interface; 0.5mm pitch
- USB – 1x USB Host port; 1x micro USB 2.0 OTG port for power and data
- Expansions Headers – 40-pin Raspberry Pi compatible header with UART, I2C, SPI, GPIOs…
- Debugging – 4-pin header for serial console
- Misc – User and reset buttons, power and user LEDs, RTC battery header
- Power Supply – 5V/2A via micro USB port with AXP228 PMIC
- Dimension: 75 x 40 mm (6-layer PCB)
The board support Android and Debian, and you can find hardware documentation on FriendlyARM’s Wiki (in construction), and software on their Github account. The Wiki should eventually get some software documentation and links to firmware images, just like for NanoPi 2 Wiki.
NanoPi2 Fire will sell for $29 + shipping, and should be listed together with NanoPi2 on the company’s product page.
