Extensions for Banana Pi

The Banana Pi minicomputer offers a wide range of possibilities for various projects, including concept prototyping for both hobby and professional applications. Botland offers dedicated extensions to Banana Pi's standard functionalities, such as webcams with the possibility to record in the dark, LCD touch-screen displays, wi-fi antennas and connecting cables. Check out our offer and discover even more capabilities of the Banana Pi platform!

The Banana Pi camera - a useful solution for filming and taking pictures - not only during the day!

The BPI-D1 small camera module is housed on a small 38x38mm PCB. Apart from standard film and photo recording, the webcam has an infrared sensor for recording in the dark and a built-in 4 mm electret microphone. The built-in 32-bit Ankya 3918 processor with a 400 MHz clock frequency is a great solution that provides high quality video and audio processing. The module is also equipped with 64 MB RAM and 16 MB flash which can be additionally expanded to 32 MB with the use of a microSD card. The camera can record movies in 720p quality at 30 frames per second and it is connected to the main Banana Pi platform via 24-pin GPIO connector. The camera can also be applied in IoT projects such as video and audio monitoring systems.

Banana Pi display - clear image with a touch user interface

The color LCD touch screen with a resolution of 800x480 and a diagonal of 7" contains a PCB that supports the transmission of video via HDMI, VGA and AV interfaces and the HDMI interface ensures full compatibility with Raspberry Pi. The display is characterized by high quality of the displayed image, even when you look at it from a very sharp angle. It can be used as a reversing camera in a car or the operator interface of a CNC machine. Moreover, it can be also applied in video monitoring systems where high quality of image from the cameras is particularly important. For best results, we recommend using a power supply, different from the Banana Pi minicomputer, with a rated voltage of 5V and 1A current efficiency.
