The NanoPi Neo is a tiny computer with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, Ethernet and USB ports, and support for a number of accessories.

Measuring just 1.6″ x 1.6″ it’s smaller than most Raspberry Pi computers, and with a starting price of $7 it’s also an awfully affordable computer capable of running Ubuntu Linux.

The NanoPi S2 has various interfaces, ports such as LVDS, and GPIOs which are compatible with Raspberry Pi’s GPIOs and ts PCB dimension is 40 * 75 mm.
The NanoPi S2 works with most of the modules and OS images that are developed for FriendlyElec’s S5P4418 based boards.

To start using NanoPi S2 you need MicroSD Card/TF Card, a DC 5V/2A power, HDMI monitor or LCD, USB keyboard, mouse and possibly a USB hub, a host computer running Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit system. It’s recommended to use a Class10 8GB SDHC TF card to boot and run fast.
