NanoPi NEO Plus2 Description
The NanoPi NEO Plus2 is an ideal platform to get most out of the Ubuntu Core Operating System. The board support Linux-4.x.y mainline kernel and is compatible with the 64-bit operating system. You can customize various settings and configure the board for some important settings including language, hostname, auto-login, SSH, timezone and passwords. You’ll have to first login (user account “pi”) to gain npi-config access.
WiFi and Ethernet support adds icing to the cake and let’s not forget the support for the USB camera (FA-CAM202 by FriendlyElec). The NanoPi NEO Plus2 also comes with audio recording support. The luxury of a Hexa-Core Graphics Processing Unit looks promising.
