hardware V1.0 is you first version for BPI-R2, we not sale it yet , and hardware need optimized ,so we do V1.1 , and now ,we volume production V1.1 and public sale.

(stonercough) #92

Can we get v1.1 board physical size measurements before release? I’d maybe like to make a case for it in blender. I’d also like to know how hot it gets(under load), if I might need to include vents/heatsinks/a fan.

(bpi team) #93

OK ,i wll update DXF file Monday. size is same as BPI-R1

(bpi team) #94

Banana pi BPI-R2 source code open on github


I can’t find any datasheets for that IC, do you know whether this is a unmanaged or managed switch?

(peter.r.volkov) #97

Are there any news on the release date? when we can order one?

(the_bao) #98 You can buy this board now


This R2 looks very interesting … Is it possible to receive free samples?

greetings from Austria

it is a managed switch and supports most common features except “port trunking”. furthermore, mt7530 has upstream dsa driver and you can find openwrt swconfig driver below

BPI-R2 is 7623N with HDMI , and we just sale it at 85 USD .:slight_smile:

(bpi team) #102

yes , we can send a free sample to you when we instock.

I know you sell it 85usb, but it’s not in stock now. This is a problem for who wanna buy at the moment. That mt7623a board has only 512MB ram, nand 128MB and too expensive


Thanks in advance … I make a subdomain for R2 with my experiences and possibly small forum

what are the requirements for a free sample? how far is the progress with the core-functionality (router,access-point with internal wifi-adapter) is there a manual on how-to install (debian/raspbian) on eMMC?

btw. you have a typo on your site

Quad-code => Quad-Core and btw. Bananian is dead. refer to
