Cherry Pi: A single-board computer that is compatible with the Raspberry Pi but is also an Orange Pi clone
Like the Raspberry Pi, the Cherry Pi measures 85 x 55 mm and is based on an ARM processor. However, Shenzhen LC Technology has opted for an Allwinner H3, a quad-core processor that features ARM Cortex-A7 processor cores an ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU. The Cherry Pi only comes with 512 MB or 1 GB of RAM though, unlike newer Raspberry Pi models.
There are two ways of booting an OS on the Cherry Pi, although eMMC flash storage is only available on the most expensive configuration, of which Shenzhen LC Technology has included 8 GB. The company equips all configurations with a microSD card reader though, which it has placed on the board's underside.
Moreover, the board has an HDMI 1.4 port, a CSI connector connecting a camera, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, a 100 MBit/s Ethernet connection and a USB Type-C port that supplies power. Additionally, there is an RTL8189 Wi-Fi chip, a 40-pin GPIO, an infrared receiver for use with a remote control and a microphone connection.
Overall, the Cherry Pi appears to be a rebadged Orange Pi that launched in 2015. Nonetheless, the Cherry Pi is available cheaply on AliExpress, with prices starting at US$16.90. A fully configured Cherry Pi only costs US$28.20, too.
