The Banana Pro (Banana Pi) is a credit card-sized and low-power single-board computer developed in China by the LeMaker Team, with the intention of promoting the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) education in schools.
The Banana Pro has an Allwinner A20 system on a chip (SoC),which includes an ARM Cortex-A7 Dual-core (ARMv7-A) 1 GHz,Mali400 MP2 GPU, and with 1GB DDR3 SDRAM. It uses a microSD card for booting OS and also has a SATA 2.0 interface for connecting a hard disk to get more storage space.
Compared to the Banana Pi, the Banana Pro adds an on-board WiFi 802.11 b/g/n rtl8189es and integrated composite video and audio output into a 3.5mm TRRS jack to get more space for making 40 pins extension headers.
