In this review I’ll be taking a first look at the Omega2 and Omega2+. I managed to get in tests on GPIO, I2C, SPI, performance and came across issues like the dreaded 2mm pin spacing, solo powering and the micro-Linux O/S problems.
The NanoPi-M3 has 8 1.4GHz ARM cores. That’s all well and good, but can you actually use this small SBC?
