Introduction

It's an open-source single-board computer (SBC). It can run Android 4.2, Android 4.4*, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Raspbian, ArchLinux, openSUSE, OpenWrt, Bananian, and other Linux OS systems such as Gentoo and Fedora. It uses the AllWinner A20 SoC, and has 1GB DDR3 SDRAM, with wired Gigabit ethernet (RJ45 socket) and a SATA port.

Due to the limited power output from a computer's USB port, we suggest only powering the B-Pi with a good quality 5V/2A PSU.

The Banana Pi Pro is the same as the Banana Pi besides an on-board WiFi 802.11b/g/n adapter using the AP6181 chip. Thus it does not require a USB WiFi adapter and frees up a USB port. It also adds a 3.5mm jack for integrated composite video and audio.
