MQ Pro RISC-V Single-Board Computer — and Router — Inspired by the Raspberry Pi Zero

 This low-cost board contains twin USB Type-C ports, HDMI, microSD, and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, mimicking the connectivity of a Raspberry Pi Zero.

MangoPi, a single-board computer company, has announced the MangoPi-MQ Pro, a new design inspired by the Raspberry Pi Zero line but with a RISC-V-based system-on-chip.

Late last year, MangoPi introduced the MangoPi-MQ1, a board meant to take the Allwinner F133-A — a RAM-on-board variation of the Allwinner D1 processor that drives the Nezha RISC-V experimental board — and turn it into a working Linux-capable single-board computer for around $10 in mass production. With the Nezha starting at $99 and now costing more, it's no wonder that the concept has piqued curiosity.

Now, the business has unveiled a new variation that foregoes the bare-bones approach in favour of a more feature-rich board based on the Raspberry Pi Zero series of single-board computers.

The MangoPi-MQ Pro replaces the Allwinner F133-A with the original D1, necessitating the use of a separate RAM module. The board has a microSD slot for storage, two USB Type-C ports for host and USB On-The-Go (OTG) connectivity, and an unnamed Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radio module on the left side. There's also an HDMI video connector, as well as the inspiration's 40-pin general-purpose input/output (GPIO) header.

At the same time, the firm demonstrated a carrier board with two USB ports and two Ethernet ports, which may be used to transform the device into a RISC-V router or other network appliance. The company joked about their prototypes, saying, "I hope it doesn't explode when turned up."

The board's specifications have yet to be confirmed, but the D1 chip features a single 1GHz 64-bit XuanTie C906 RISC-V core with no GPU, which is an implementation of the RISC-V free and open source instruction set architecture that includes a pre-ratification version of the performance-boosting vector extensions as well as some vendor-specific features.
