The Odroid-C1


The ODROID-C1 has many advantages over the Raspberry Pi. The processor is an S805 1.5GHz Quad-core from Amlogic with 1GByte DDR3 RAM, Gigabit Ethernet and IR-receiver. The size of this computer is still only 85 x 56 mm with a weight of 40g, and offers silent operation, 2~3W average power usage, and instant portability, since it fits in a shirt pocket.

One powerful feature of the ODROID-C1 is the row of GPIO (general purpose input/output) pins along the edge of the device. These pins are a physical interface between the board and the outside world. The 40pin interface header includes SPI, I2C, UART, ADC and GPIO function.

The ODROID-C1 is suitable for anyone from professional software engineers building Kinect-drive robotics projects to kids learning to program with the Scratch language. Run the latest Ubuntu 14.04 or Android KitKat operating systems for programming, learning, gaming, media center, web server, office/college work, hardware IO platform and many other applications. The powerful 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, low cost, energy efficient features and massive software library make the ODROID-C1 the perfect modern computer for work or play.
