The NanoPi NEO Core2 LTS (Long Term Support) is an alternative NanoPi NEO2 that works like a CPU board with male pin-headers. It has the same form factor as the NanoPi NEO2, same pin descriptions and works with all the OS images the NanoPi NEO2 supports. The connectors and ports on the NEO2 are populated to pin-headers on the Core2.
The NEO Core2 uses a popular Allwinner H5 SoC and has onboard 1G DDR3 RAM and 8GB eMMC flash. FriendlyElec migrated UbuntuCore with mainline kernel 4.x.y for it. It works with other OS such as Armbian as well.
The NanoPi NEO Core2 is supplied with header connectors soldered.
The use of customized heat sink is recommended.
A carrier board with enclosure is also available (see Mini Shield below).
