TECHBASE ModBerry​ M300 IoT Gateway Adds Support for NanoPi and Orange Pi Allwinner H5 Boards

Orange Pi Development Boards

Announced at the end of last year TECHBASE launched the ModBerry​ M300, a Linux IoT gateway powered by FriendlyELEC NanoPi NEO board equipped with Allwinner H3 Cortex A7 processor.

The company has now made four extra variants of the gateway with Allwinner H5 quad core Cortex A53 based development boards from FriendlyELEC and Shenzhen Xunlong:

  • Modberry M300 N2 – Based on NanoPi NEO2
  • Modberry M300 N2+ – Based on NanoPi NEO Plus2 adding 8GB eMMC flash, WiFi & Bluetooth 4.0, and an extra USB port over the N2 model
  • Modberry M300 O1 – Based on Orange Pi Zero Plus
  • Modberry M300 O2 – Based on Orange Pi Zero Plus2 adding 8GB eMMC flash, HDMI, one extra USB port, and Bluetooth 4.0 over the O1 model, but falling back to 10/100 Ethernet, while all three models above come with Gigabit Ethernet

To avoid confusion, the original NanoPi NEO model has changed name to ModBerry M300 N1. The specifications summary / comparison between the 5 models can be found in the table below.

    So what? They stick a dirt cheap third-party board in a plastic DIN case, bundle FOSS software and, mark-up the price a large amount? I guess that’s OK if they hold your hand a lot. But how much are the darn things? Their Web site gives you a run-around instead of just showing you the price. I hate that!
