Like a Raspberry Pi, the Orange Pi PC 2 is basically a credit card-sized computer, measuring 85mm x 55mm (about 3.3″ x 2.2″) and weighing 70 grams (2.5 ounces).
It has an Allwinner H5 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor with Mali-450 graphics, 1gB Of RAM, and a microSD card slot that allows you to use cards with up to 64GB of storage.
Ports include HDMI 1.4, A/V, Gigabit Ethernet, three USB 2.0 ports, and a micro USB port and an IR receiver that can be used with a remote control.
The computer also has developer-friendly features including a 40-pin, Raspberry Pi-compatible header that can be used for debugging, programming, or HAT expansion boards.
Shenzhen Xunlong plans to offer Android, Ubuntu, Debian, and Raspbian software images that are compatible with the board, although it doesn’t look like any of the images on the company’s download page are optimized for the Orange Pi PC 2 just yet.
