The Foxconn Super Pi is essentially a Foxconn redesigned Banana Pi. The overall design shows clear relationship with the Banana Pi but the PCB layout and onboard connector positions are mostly different.


The board has "Super Pi REV:1.0" printed between the DSI connector and Ethernet port.

Tips, Tricks, Caveats

FEL mode

The UBOOT button, located behind the Ethernet port, triggers FEL mode.

Powering the board

This board has severe UART backpower problem. While connected to another computer through a UART-USB dongle, the current leaked through RXD keeps the board in an slightly "working" state, preventing the board from properly powering up. To normally power cycle the device it is often needed to disconnect RXD temporarily.

Adding a serial port

Super Pi UART pads

Locating the UART

The UART pins are located in the upper right corner of the board (connector J11 and J12), and the relative positions among the pins are the same as the Banana Pi. Just attach some leads according to our UART Howto.
