The FriendlyELEC manufacturer has added a new NanoPi Neo Plus2 model to a huge family of boards for NanoPi developers. It is more compact than many counterparts (its dimensions are only 52 х 40 mm), however, offers attractive extension options. There is even enough room for a wireless adapter.
SoC Allwinner H5 on this board includes four Cortex-A53 cores and a Mali450 GPU. The DDR3 RAM capacity is 1 GB. Customers can use an 8 GB eMMC 5.0 Samsung KLM8G1WEPD-B031 module for durable data storage.
One may also find two USB 2.0 ports, a microSD slot, one microUSB (for power supply), two extra USB are available via hood type connectors, which enable access to I2S, GPIO, I2C, UART and SPI buses. The NanoPi Neo Plus2 card is equipped with an Ampak AP6212A adapter with Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 support; Gigabit Ethernet wire bonding is present too.
The specialty by FriendlyELEC (Ubuntu and Debian with a 4.x core distribution kits) costs $25.
