The Orange Pi Zero SBC costs $6.99
The developer board features a 4-core ARM central processor and Wi-Fi.
From $6.99, a recent Raspberry Pi competitor known as Orange Pi Zero costs less than many snacks in New York City.
The Orange Pi Zero could be used to make electronic products or bots, or it can also become a file / media server. Those developer boards are also used to build and test industrial equipment.
The computer is a competitor to the little Raspberry Pi Zero, a stripped down variant of Raspberry Pi that typically costs $5. But Orange Pi Zero has much better hardware with a better central processor and Wi-Fi functionality.
Do not ever expect the tiny Orange Pi Zero to bring booming performance or be a traditional PC replacement. For anybody who is seeking out a effective board computer, look at the $35 Raspberry Pi 3 or $15 Pine64 board.
The Orange Pi Zero has a 4-core Allwinner ARM Cortex-A7 central processor, which recently has been employed to power low-end and even mid-range smartphones and tablet PCs.
It also employs ARM’s Mali 400 MP2 graphics, that’s efficient at coping with hi-def video clips. Shenzhen Xunlong, the designer of the board, promises it could cope with H.265 4K video clips, but the board isn’t made for that. The Orange Pi Zero also doesn’t have a display out port.
The Zero contains an Sdcard slot and 256Megabyte of built-in memory space. The other design with 512Megabyte of memory space costs $8.99.
Likewise, the Zero comprises of 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and ethernet networking functions. Moreover it has expansion slots and pins to connect other boards and a USB 2.0 host port.
For everybody who is hoping to choose the board to study coding or test applications, software could possibly be a difficulty. It allows Android operating system, however only version 4.4. It also allows Debian plus Ubuntu.
The board is on the market on Alibaba’s retail site for $10.30, including shipping charges.
Tech hobbyists are embracing lots of low-cost boards with x86 and ARM processor chips. The price tags of processor chips, RAM, and parts are cutting down, leading to cheap board alternatives. Allwinner’s SoCs, especially, are one of the most cost-effective readily available.
