Banana Pi BPI-F3 De Board – Featuring 8-Core RISC-V K1 Processor with Up to 16GB LPDDR4/4X RAM Support


The Banana Pi BPI-F3 Dev Board, developed by SpacemiT Technologies Ltd., is a compact development board developed by the RISC-V Foundation’s RVA22 standards. The 8-core RISC-V K1 chip powers it and features 16GB of RAM and a 2.0 TOPs NPU, among many others.

Previously, we have covered many development boards and SBCs, such as the Banana Pi BPI-M4 Zero, the Banana Pi BPI-Wifi6 Mini, the Banana Pi BPI-M7, and many other products designed by Banana Pi.

The K1 chip features an 8-core 64-bit processor with Vector 1.0 technology. That delivers 2.0 TOPs of AI computing power for enhanced parallel processing. It is ideal for unstructured data and AI tasks. Additionally,  it also achieves a 20% reduction in energy waste through SpacemiT’s branch prediction and power management, ensuring high performance with ultra-low power consumption.

The device supports up to 16GB LPDDR4/4X memory, offers 4K video decoding/encoding, and includes connectivity options like 5-lane PCIe 2.1 and MicroSD slot. The BPI-F3 features HDMI, two RJ45 ports, one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 ports, and a 26-pin GPIO header for versatile interfacing and expansion.
