The Banana Pi is a series of credit card-sized single-board ARM computer based on a low-cost concept for software and hardware development and school software learning such as Scratch. Its hardware design was influenced by Raspberry Pi in 2013. It is produced by the Chinese company Shenzhen SINOVOIP Co.,Ltd.
Banana Pi software is compatible with Raspberry Pi boards. Banana Pi also can run NetBSD, Android, Ubuntu, Debian, Arch Linux, Raspbian operating systems, though the CPU complies with the requirements of the Debian armhf port. It uses the Allwinner SoC (system on chip) and as such is mostly covered by the linux-sunxi port.
Banana Pi is the open source hardware and software platform which is designed to assist bananapi.org and banana-pi.org.
