The Banana Pi platform is an open source Single-Board Computer (SBC) based on the Allwinner System-on-a-Chip (SoC) architecture, which is capable of running Android, Lubuntu, Debian, Bananian or even Raspbian. The GPIO expansion interface is pin compatible with the Raspberry Pi.
The first generation of the Banana Pi boards use the Allwinner A20 (sun 7i) SoC which features the ARM Cortex-A7 Dual-core 1GHz CPU and ARM Mali400MP2 GPU, and includes 1GB of shared DDR3 SDRAM, and Gigabit Ethernet.
The second generation of the Banana Pi boards, known as the Banana Pro, also use the same Allwinner A20 (sun 7i) SoC with ARM Cortex-A7 Dual-core 1GHz CPU and ARM Mali400MP2 GPU, 1GB of shared DDR3 SDRAM, Gigabit Ethernet, but also includes Wireless b/g/n as well as several other enhancements.
