The Banana Pi R64 router based development board is equipped with 4 Gigabit LAN ports, 1 Gigabit WAN, and AC wifi AP function and the 64 bit chip design is capable of running a variety of open source operating systems including OpenWrt Linux.
Powered by a MediaTek MT7622,1.35GHZ 64 bit dual-core ARM Cortex-A53 supported by 1G DDR3 SDRAM the development Board supports Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and is fitted with 10/100/1000 MB Ethernet ports.
“The MT7622 provides a host of advanced connectivity options like SGMII/RGMII, PCIe, and USB, and 4X4 802.11n FEM integration. Extending the platform with 802.11ac to meet additional markets is simply done via MT7615 SoC. The advantage of the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator is two-fold.
Firstly it connects the Gigabit+ class 802.11ac networking through to the Gigabit switch/WAN connection via multi-Gigabit internal pathways, ensuring no bottleneck. Secondly, its specialized design not only offloads the CPU from many-user throughput and QoS calculations, it does so at lower power. The result is the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator maintains a sustained high-performance when even supporting multiple, simultaneous heavy users.
Integrated Bluetooth allows for a direct, local wireless connection via App for easy configuration of the router/Wi-Fi settings. The latest Bluetooth 5.0 quadruples range and doubles speed versus previous 4.x technologies, allowing new and innovative possibilities.”
