Introduction[edit]

Overview:eMMC onboard
Overview:no eMMC onboard


Banana PI BPI-M2 Magic (BPi-M2M) is an efficient quad core solution designed for internet-of-things applications,Use allwinner R16 chip design ,also can use Allwinner A33 chip on board, which outperforms competitors in terms of its system performance, scalability, and energy-efficiency; it can be used for home entertainment, home automation, and high wireless performance and so on.

BPI-M2 Magic integrate four ARM Cortex-A7 CPU cores and Mali400MP2 graphics architecture, It also includes a variety of peripherals, BPI-M2 Magic with 512M DDR3,including 4 lane-MIPI DSI, LVDS, USB2.0 OTG/HOST,802.11 b/g/n wifi & BT4.0 onboard.

Note: 1,BPI-M2 Magic not HDMI interface. 2,Not support RJ45 interface

BPI-M2 Magic can run with Android smoothly, it also can run Debian, Ubuntu linux, Raspberry Pi image and others OS. It can easily run with the game it support 1080P high definition video output, the GPIO compatible with Raspberry Pi B+ and can run the ROM Image

allwinner R16 chip and A33 chip is PIN to PIN compatibility, so BPI-M2 Magic just replace R16 ,A33 chip onboard, easy to DIY new product.
