UDOO is a mini PC that could run either Android or Linux, with an Arduino-compatible board embedded. It is a powerful prototyping board for software development and design, it’s easy to use and allows to create projects with minimum knowledge. UDOO merges different computing worlds in one; each world has its strengths and weaknesses, and all of them are useful today in education as well as Do-It-Yourself (DIY) and rapid prototyping endeavours. UDOO is an open hardware, low-cost computer equipped with an ARM i.MX6 Freescale processor for Android and Linux, alongside  Arduino DUE’s ARM SAM3X, both CPU integrated on the same board!

It is a powerful prototyping board for software development and design; it’s easy to use and allows developing projects with minimum knowledge of hardware. UDOO merges different computing worlds together: each one has its proper strenght- and weak- points, but all of them are useful in today's life for educational purposes as well as Do-It-Yourself (DIY) and quick prototyping. UDOO is an open hardware, low-cost platform equipped with an ARM i.MX6 Freescale processor, and an Arduino Due compatible section based on ATMEL SAM3X ARM processor, all this available on the same board!

UDOO
This page collects information about UDOO www.udoo.org the first ever small sized computer that merges in one single board an ARM cortex-A9 iMX.6 CPU and an Arduino compatible board embedded with a dedicated ARM SAM3X CPU. UDOO project has been funded through Kickstarter, raising $641,614 in sixty days thanks to 4,172 backers.

What's UDOO?

UDOO is a mini PC that can be used both with Android and Linux OS, with an embedded Arduino-compatible board. It is a powerful prototyping board for software development and design; it’s easy to use and allows developing projects with minimum knowledge of hardware. UDOO merges different computing worlds together: each one has its proper strenght- and weak- points, but all of them are useful in today's life for educational purposes as well as Do-It-Yourself (DIY) and quick prototyping. UDOO is an open hardware, low-cost platform equipped with an ARM i.MX6 Freescale processor, and an Arduino Due compatible section based on ATMEL SAM3X ARM processor, all this available on the same board!

UDOO goals:

  • Develop an innovative product for a growing market
  • Give a new vision to the educational framework, with the idea of training up a new generation of engineers, designers and software developers skilled in digital technology: physical computing, multi-media arts, interactive arts, IoT...
  • Give a boost to the DIY world
  • Offer a low cost embedded platform for interactive arts with powerful tools: Processing, OpenCV, PureData, openFramework
  • Provide companies with a great tool for fast prototyping

Specifications

UDOO retail line up consists of three models, sharing most of the featuresand different only for connectivity and i.MX6 processor used. All three models feature an embedded Arduino compatible section based on Arduino Due schematic. UDOO’s size are 4.33 inch x 3.35 inch (11 cm x 8.5 cm).

Warning: The UDOO I/O pins are 3.3V compliant. Higher voltages (like 5V) would damage the board.

Learn more about wrong uses that invalidate the warranty.
