This little router board packs a punch with three Ethernet ports, two of which enable 2.5-gigabit Ethernet.

The NanoPi R5S, a single-board computer featuring two 2.5-gigabit and one one-gigabit Ethernet connections as well as M.2 NVMe storage expansion options, is the latest addition to FriendlyELEC's NanoPi line.

NanoPi R5S, a single-board computer

The new board is the newest in FriendlyELEC's NanoPi single-board computer family — particularly, the R-series of router-centric boards, which began with the original NanoPi R1 containing a single gigabit Ethernet connection and a slower Fast Ethernet (10/100) connector. The NanoPi R4S, a dual-gigabit design with a Rockchip RK3399 six-core CPU, is the most recent addition to the line since then.

The NanoPi R5S, on the other hand, has three Ethernet connections, two of which support 2.5-gigabit speeds and one of which supports gigabit speeds. A quad-core Arm Cortex-A55 CPU, Mali-G52 GPU, a VPU with 4K60 decoding and 1080P60 encode, and a neural network coprocessor with 0.8 TOPS of performance power the Rockchip RK3568 system-on-chip.

FriendlyELEC has augmented this by including 2GB of LPDDR4X RAM, 8GB of eMMC storage, two USB 3.0 Type-A connectors, and an HDMI connection. A microSD port and an M.2 Key M slot on the underside provide storage expansion, which is compatible with NVMe storage and other PCI Express devices.

The board doesn't include a GPIO header, but the available pins are carried out to a high-density FPC connector for use with a breakout board and include a single SPI bus, up to three UART buses, and eight GPIO pins, four of which enable pulse-width modulation (PWM). SDIO 3.0 and I2S signals are provided through a second connection.

The board is supposed to be powered via USB Type-C with Power Delivery (PD) compatibility, but the actual power draw has yet to be revealed – something FriendlyELEC is keeping quiet about for the time being, along with a release date and price.

The FriendlyELEC wiki has further technical information about the NanoPi R5S.
