New Orange Pi being served, half the price of Raspberry

Runs on a H3 Quad-core Cortex-A7 H.265/HEVC 4K processor.

By CBR Staff Writer

Orange Pi has introduced a new single-board computer, which is considered a cheaper alternative to the $35 Raspberry Pi.

The $15 device is capable of running on Android 4.4, Ubuntu, Debian, and Rasberry Pi Image, with users able to make use of the open source tool to build computers, wireless servers, games and HD videos.

It features a H3 Quad-core Cortex-A7 H.265/HEVC 4K processor, 1GB of RAM and offers a card slot with maximum capacity of 64GB – which makes up for the fact that the device does not have any internal storage.

However, the new Raspberry Pi 2 features 1GB of RAM, as well as a Broadcom BCM2836 ARMv7 Quad Core Processor.

Orange Pi supports a 8-bit YUV422 CMOS sensor interface, as well as offering support for the CCIR656 protocol for NTSC and PAL. Other features include a SM pixel camera sensor and a video capture solution up to 1080p at 30fps.

It also features USB 2.0 HOST, one USB 2.0 OTG, and 40 Pins Header which is compatible with Raspberry Pi B+.

At 50g, the new device can act as an addition to PC maker’s toolkit.
