I’m really excited about the Orange Pi Zero, and can’t wait for mine to arrive!! This little development board combo includes the Orange Pi Zero 512M, Expansion board and case. For $25.89AU landed (at time of writing), this combo provides a big punch for buck that’s great for all those little projects. It forgoes things like HDMI connectors, making it ideal for headless, embedded applications.
Under the hood it’s a H2 Quad-core Cortex-A7 H.265/HEVC 1080P, using a 1.2Ghz AllWinner H3 SoC, with 512MB DDR3 SDRAM. With a Mail400MP2 GPU humming along at 600Mhz with support for the industry standard OPENGL ES 2.0.
Network connectivity provides you with some great options, either old school 10/100M Ethernet RJ45 with POE!! Or WiFi with supported IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, via an XR819 antenna.
Power is via USB OTG with power switch. wile the board doesn’t consume much in the way of power, it’s recommended you use a 5V 3A PSU for your connected peripherals.
