Banana Pi BPI-M4 with RTD1395 quad-core CPU,ARM cortex-A53 chip

Banana Pi BPI-M4 with RTD1395 quad-core CPU,ARM cortex-A53 chip design


Banana Pi BPI-M4 use Realtek RTD1395 chp design ,it is a 64-bit quad-core A53 mini single board computer. It features 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB eMMC. It also has onboard WiFi for b/g/n/ac and BT 4.2. On the ports side, the BPI-M4 has 4 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB TYPE C port, 1 HDMI port, 1 audio jack. support M.2 Key E PCIE 2.0 interface.


The RTD1395 is equipped with a high-performance quad-core CPU,ARM cortex-A53,with 512K L2 cache embedded. the RTD1395 also integrates and efficient ARM Mali-470 Graphic Processing Unit(GPU) to accelerate 2D and 3D graphics processing. For acceleration of this OSD and 2K user interface,the built-in Streaming Engine of the RTD1395 provides commonly used drawing functions.the CPU is dedicated to applications ,while most of the functions of the RTD1395 is dedicated to manipulating,decoding video streams in vaious formats.e.g. decoding 4K2K H.265,Full HD MPEG1/2/4/H.264/H.264 MVC,AVC/VC-1,VP8,VP9,AVS,AVS plus,HD JPEG,etc. Video DSP can also handle encoding of up to Full HD with H.264 format.Video decoding and encoding can run simultaneously.

Any chance you will release a version of M4 with Gigabit Ethernet in addition to 2GB RAM?

I doubt there will be any new version coming in. But You can order in bulk, they provide on request manufacturing for more than 1000 pcs.

Or you can go for M64

Hello, Where can we find technical programming information about SoC RTD1395 chip. The Linux RTD1395 USB host driver seem to have software-bugs ( and we would like to fix this. However we will need chip documentation.

Thanks! Alexander
