What is Orange Pi 800 ?

Orange pi 800 is a Single board Computer(SBC), which  means they have the capability  to run a full operating system and a wide range of applications. It is a keyboard computer which works similar to the Raspberry  400. Orange Pi offers a complete personal computer which is squeezed inside a keyboard. It is powerful and easy to use mini Pc on a keyboard. It supports different types of OS, such as  Manjaro, Ubuntu22.04, Debian11 and its own. This PC looks like a wired keyboard which needs only a display. After installing it, you can easily control your Orange pi 800.

Difference between Raspberry Pi and Orange Pi

Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is also known as RPi or raspi. It is a series of Small Single Board Computers(SBCs) which was developed in the United Kingdom by Raspberry Pi Foundation in association with Broadcom. It can be termed as a small computer which has the capability of surfing the internet, watching high-definition videos and playing light mode games. Pi is mostly used in the field of IOT and is used with weather detection programs, or home automation systems. It is very helpful for students to learn more about IoT systems or many different technologies. Pi has the capability of computing and  taught how to program with languages. It supports the Python language outside of the box. Pi is a  mini-computer that can serve you like a desktop computer.

Orange Pi

This is also another series of single-board computers with all the capabilities that are considered by Raspberry Pi. It was developed by Shenzhen Xunlong Software when there was a huge demand for Raspberry, then a clone of a computer was developed and named Orange Pi. Some basic differences are that Pi is supported by different OS like Linux, Ubuntu, and Android. When compared to Orange Pi, Orange Pi has some cost-cutting with fewer USB ports. It has faster networking and some more heavy features that make it difficult to be as fast as Pi.

Orange Pi We hope that you understand the difference between the Raspberry Pi and Orange Pi.
