Banana Pi BPI-M64

Banana Pi M64 is a development board based on the AllWinner A64 SoC, which offers 4 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 cores. It has 8GB of internal storage (16, 32 and 64GB versions are also available), 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Thanks to its Gigabit ethernet port, Banana Pi M64 is also suitable for applications that require high speed networking. It has an onboard charger circuit for Lithium cells, while the power management is handled by a AXP803 PMU. The pinout is Raspberry Pi compatible, and the board can run both Linux and Android.
