Banana Pi BPI-R64
The Banana Pi R64 is a router based development board, which can run on a variety of open source operating systems including OpenWrt,Linux. It has 4 Gigabit LAN ports, 1 Gigabit WAN, and AC wifi AP function. use 64 bit chip design
Highly integrated 4x4 802.11n and Bluetooth 5.0 platform with dedicated Network Accelerator MediaTek MT7622 is the world’s first with 4x4n 802.11n/Bluetooth 5.0 system-on-chip designed and built for premium networking devices across several applications including routers/repeaters, home automation gateways, wireless audio, and wireless storage. The highly versatile chipset provides a single platform for popular 4X4 dual-band and tri-band routers/repeaters, providing maximum flexibility for manufacturers looking to build top-tier networking devices. The platform pairs high performance and extensively integrated functionality with a cost-effective approach.
The MT7622 contains MediaTek’s Adaptive Network technology that allows for easy setup, network self-healing, roaming, band steering, Smart quality of service, advanced security and more. For audio and voice control applications, essential audio interfaces such as I2S, TDM and S/PDIF are included. And for Home Automation Gateways there is a rich array of slow I/O in addition to the integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Zigbee co-existence.
Powered by a 64-bit dual-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.35GHz, the MT7622 provides a host of advanced connectivity options like SGMII/RGMII, PCIe, and USB, and 4X4 802.11n FEM integration. Extending the platform with 802.11ac to meet additional markets is simply done via MT7615 SoC.
The MT7622 introduces several best-in-class features such as Bluetooth 5.0 and a dedicated Network Accelerator engine with the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator, storage accelerator (SATA 3.0/eSATA Gen2) and HNAT HQoS calculations are offloaded from the CPU, lowering overall power-use and freeing up resources to avoid any potential slow-downs.
The advantage of the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator is two-fold. Firstly it connects the Gigabit+ class 802.11ac networking through to the Gigabit switch/WAN connection via multi-Gigabit internal pathways, ensuring no bottleneck. Secondly, its specialized design not only offloads the CPU from many-user throughput and QoS calculations, it does so at lower power. The result is the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator maintains a sustained high-performance when even supporting multiple, simultaneous heavy users.
Integrated Bluetooth allows for a direct, local wireless connection via App for easy configuration of the router/Wi-Fi settings. The latest Bluetooth 5.0 quadruples range and doubles speed versus previous 4.x technologies, allowing new and innovative possibilities.
