The new Banana Pi BPI-F2P has the same layout and list of functions as the BPI-F2S. The biggest difference is the addition of two serial ports and the addition of a new Power-over-Ethernet function on one of the two 10/100 Ethernet ports. Meanwhile, the FPGA connector on the optional Artix-7 FPGA module has been removed.

The Banana Pi design also revealed Banana Pi BPI-EAI80 AIoT SBC, which does not work under Linux, but to some extent looks like an array. Separate reports state on on BPI-F2P and BPI-EAI80 AIoT. BPI-F2P and BPI-F2S appear to be supported by the Banana Pi community, but there is no indication that they are open source hardware boards like most Banana Pi SBCs. The BPI-F2 diagram has not yet been published.

Industrial use of market Banana Pi-like SBCs

A year ago, TECHBASE released an updated version of the ModBerry M500 industrial IoT computer, replacing the aging Raspberry Pi 3 with a 3B+, giving it better performance. With the recent launch of the Raspberry Pi 4, TECHBASE has yet again, announced another upgrade to the M500, which now packs the latest single-board computer.
