The SoC on the Cubieboards (and Cubietruck) is produced by Allwinner, which is known for several [[http://linux-sunxi.org/GPL_Violations|GPL violations]].

CubieBoard

CubieBoard is an ARM board.

CPU: 1Ghz ARM Cortex A8

GPU: Mali400

RAM: 512MB/1GB

Can I put Debian on my CubieBoard?

Jessie should be installable using u-boot 2014.04+dfsg1-2, linux-image-*-armmp 3.16.7-2, and the daily builds of the netboot or hd-media installer (20141124). Ethernet, USB, MMC and serial console all work out of the box. Instructions using debian-installer are available on the Allwinner page.

Unofficial images are also available, e.g. Cubian (see links section), which may have additional features enabled.
