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!

== Creating a bootable Micro SD card from image ==
+
*How to [http://www.elinux.org/UDOO_creating_a_bootable_Micro_SD_card_from_precompiled_image Create a bootable micro SD card for UDOO]
  
This guide will allow you to create a bootable micro SD card for your UDOO board using an image file. The image file contains the UDOO Operating system, which runs the i.MX6 processor. Without the O.S., you can only use UDOO like a normal Arduino DUE (only SAM3X processor).
+
*Configure your UDOO with [http://elinux.org/UDOO_Configuration_Tool UDOO Configuration Tool]
+
Using an image is quite simple: you need to unzip the image and write it to your SD card using the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_(Unix) dd] tool for UNIX/MAC users or [http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ Win32DiskImager] for Windows users. It is not possible to create a bootable card with drag and drop. Please note that the micro SD must be at least 8GB; bigger memory cards may be used but only 8GB will be available at the end of the procedure.

The left column gives the device name of your Micro SD card. It will be listed as something like “/dev/mmcblk0p1″ or “/dev/sdd1″. The last part (“p1″ or “1″ respectively) is the partition number, but you want to write to the whole micro SD card, not just one partition, so you need to remove that part from the name (for example “/dev/mmcblk0″ or “/dev/sdd”) to work with the entire Micro SD card.
+
  
* If your Micro SD card contains more partitions, you should unmount all of these partitions (using the right name found earlier followed by the letters and numbers that identify the partitions) using the command:
+
*[[UDOO_usb_debug|Using USB Debug Connection]]
e.g. sudo umount /dev/sdd1
+
  
* Write the image into the Micro SD card using the command:
+
* '''Having problems? Try the [[UDOO_TroubleShooting | Troubleshooting]] page.'''
sudo dd bs=1M if=<img_file_path> of=/dev/<sd_name>
+
Make sure you replace the input file if= argument with the path to your .img file, and the “/dev/“ in the output file of= argument with the correct device name (this is very important: you will lose all data on the hard drive on your computer if you get the wrong device name). Make sure the device name is the name of the whole Micro SD card as described above, not just a partition.  (e.g. sdd, not sdds1 or sddp1, or mmcblk0 not mmcblk0p1)
+
e.g. sudo dd bs=1M if=/home/<user_name>/Download/2013-5-28-udoo-ubuntu.img of=/dev/sdd
+
  
* Once dd completes, run the sync command as root or run sudo sync as a normal user (this will ensure the write cache is flushed and that it is safe to unmount your micro SD card) and then run:
+
| style="width:33%; vertical-align:top; border:1px solid #aaa; padding-left:5px;" |
sudo umount /media/<sd_label>
+
  
* Your micro SD card is ready to be used. Just insert it in UDOO and boot the system.

* The device that wasn’t there previously is your Micro SD card.
 
Remember the device name of the filesystem’s partition, for example, /dev/disk3s1. Using the device name of the partition work out the raw device name for the entire disk, by omitting the final “s1″ and replacing “disk” with “rdisk”  (this is very important:you will lose all data on the hard drive on your computer if you get the wrong device name). Make sure the device name is the name of the whole micro SD card as described above, not just a partition (for example, rdisk3, not rdisk3s1. Similarly you might have another SD drive name/number like rdisk2 or rdisk4, etc. recheck it by using the df -h command both before & after you insert your micro SD card reader into your Mac if you have any doubts!):
 
e.g. /dev/disk3s1 => /dev/rdisk3
 
  
* If your micro SD card contains more partitions, you should unmount all of these partitions (using the correct name found previously, followed by letters and numbers that identify the partitions) using the command:

It’s also possible to download and compile the Kernel sources from the github repository https://github.com/UDOOboard/Kernel_Unico. If you decide to compile the sources you also need to download (and extract) the cross-compiler from the sources section of the website http://www.udoo.org/downloads/
 
  
* Download inside the “udoo-dev” folder the '''U-Boot''' file (u-boot.bin) from the binaries section http://www.udoo.org/downloads/
+
= Official Accessories =
  
Once completed these steps in “udoo-dev” you should have 3 binary files: File System, U-Boot and Kernel (in case you downloaded the Kernel compiled binary), while you should have 2 binaries: File System and U-Boot plus 2 folders containing the Kernel sources (from the github link) and the cross-compiler.

In order to upload sketches to the SAM3X, the flash memory needs to be erased before being re-programmed. While Arduino DUE uses an ATmega16U2 microcontroller to perform this procedure, UDOO uses the iMx6 processor which is directly linked to the erase and reset pins of the Sam3x managed during the program phase.

There are 3 ways to program the Sam3x processor: With an external PC/MAC using the mini-usb cable connected to the CN6 port without any mirco SD inserted; Using the mini-usb cable connected to the CN6 port with mirco SD inserted and OS booted; Directly from UDOO under Ubuntu OS.

=== With an external PC using the mini-usb cable connected to the CN6 port without any mirco SD inserted ===
+
 
+
Using this method '''the iMx6 processor doesn’t boot any kernel or file system'''. UDOO is used as a simple Arduino DUE.
+
 
+
In this case you just need a '''working Arduino IDE 1.5.2''' installed on your PC/MAC (http://arduino.cc/en/main/software).
+
 
+
Once the sketch is defined, you need to follow these steps:
+
* The '''micro SD''' with the OS installed must be '''removed''';
+
* The jumper in the '''j18 connector must be unplugged''', this allows the communication with the programming port of Sam3x;
+
* Insert the '''jumper in the j22 connector''' for 1 second and remove it (to erase the old sketch in SAM3X);
+
* Insert the '''jumper in the j16 connector''' for 1 second and remove it (to reset the SAM3X);
+
* Select from the IDE: Tools –> Board –> Arduino DUE programming port
+
* Select the correct serial COM from the IDE;
+
* Send the sketch using the IDE upload button.
+
+
===Using the mini-usb cable connected to the CN6 port with mirco SD inserted and OS booted ===

At this stage the board doesn’t support this option.

Notice: The UDOO Pi Wiki pages on this site is collaborative work - the UDOO Team is not responsible for content on these pages.

This page collects information about UDOO the first ever small sized computer that merges in one single board an ARM cortex-A9 iMX.6 CPU and an Arduino Due compatible board embedded with a dedicated ARM SAM3X8E CPU. UDOO project has been funded through Kickstarter, raising $641,614 in sixty days thanks to 4,172 backers.


UDOO

What's UDOO?

UDOO is a single board computer that can be used both with Android and Linux, paired with an Arduino-compatible processor. 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 design. UDOO merges different computing worlds together: each one has its proper strengths and weak points, but all of them are useful in todays 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 SAM3X8E 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 features and 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 dimensions are: 4.33 inch x 3.35 inch (11 cm x 8.5 cm).
