    It's widely known that the SoC on an SBC greatly influences the performance, cost, expansion interfaces available, and peripherals that can be accommodated.  In most cases, it’s very difficult to achieve a balance between performance, functionality, and price.  We were delighted to discover the Actions S500 SoC from the ActDuino open-source  chipset series, which satisfies these requirements much better than other SoCs.
    The S500 is an open-platform, quad-core, 32-bit SoC featuring a highly integrated design, high-performance computing, low-power consumption, low cost, and robust peripheral support.  The S500 SoC integrates a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9R4 microprocessor with a NEON SIMD co-processor and Imagination PowerVR SGX544 GPU.  This SoC provides powerful performance, can support a 2K @ 60fps (1920 × 1200) LCD plus 1080p HDMI dual-screen output.  In order to serve the various needs of the open-source market, the S500 SoC has rich peripheral interfaces that provide users with convenient expansion, and it's integrated with multiple-speed USB ports, I²C, SPI, UART, I²S, PCM, SPDIF, MIPI DSI / CSI, HDMI,  100BaseT Ethernet and other ports on the Lemon Pi.
    Lemon Pi provides all of the standard video format 1080p@60fps decoding playback capabilities. For H.264 format, up to 4K*2K can be supported. Particularly, most of H.265@1080P video can be supported. The Lemon Pi also supports open-source home theater software like XBMC (Kodi) so that you can enjoy rich multimedia using the Lemon Pi.
