NanoPi NEO Plus 2 is a H5 based small form-factor development boards produced by FriendlyARM. It has pretty much the same form factor than the NanoPi NEO2 but much features, The NEO Plus 2 comes with integrated 1000 Mbps Ethernet, 2 x USB A 2.0, and a micro-SD card slot, 1 GiB DDR3 and 8 GiB of eMMC.
The PCB has the following silkscreened on it:
V2.0 1907 NanoPi NEO Plus2
The H5 SoC support has matured since its introduction in kernel 4.12. Most of the board functionality for boards such as FriendlyARM NanoPi NEO Plus2 are available with current mainline kernels. Some features (hw accelerated crypto, hw spinlocks, and thermal) are still being worked on and the status of some features (video engine) is still unknown due to the lack of testing. For a more comprehensive list of supported features, see the status matrix for mainline kernels.
See the Manual build section for more details.
You can build things for yourself by following our Manual build howto and by choosing from the configurations available below.
Use the nanopi_neo_plus2_defconfig (supported since v2018.01) build target.
The H5 SoC has support in the mainline kernels.
The development process, links to patches and links to kernel fork repositories are listed on the Linux mainlining effort page. Patches can also be found from the arm-linux mailing list.
Repositories with H5 patches:
- Ondřej Jirman's branch for H5 based orange Pi (kernel 4.19) (work-in-progress DVFS)
- Thermal regulation (if CPU heats above certain temperature, it will try to cool itself down by reducing CPU frequency)
- HDMI audio support (from Jernej Skrabec)
- Configure on-board micro-switches to perform system power off function
- Wireguard (https://www.wireguard.com/)
