We spoke about the UDOO Kickstarter campaign just over a year ago.
From this month, the  powerful x86 single board computers are available on Mouser.com.

The open source X86 combines the power of a PC with prototyping capabilities of the Arduino 101 and claims to have a 10 times faster execution time than the Raspberry Pi 3.
The boards are ideal for prototyping applications requiring multimedia capabilities and high levels of parallel computing. The boards provide a flexible environment that lets engineers explore the IoT, build a media player powerful enough to drive three 4K displays, or create a retrogaming platform.
The X86 boards are versatile enough for 3D scanning, robotics, gaming, streaming video, and computer vision applications.

You can choose between 4 different models, all of which are based on 64-bit quad-core Intel® processors:

  • BASIC is based on an Intel Atom x5-E8000 processor with 2GBytes of RAM.
  • ADVANCED run on an Intel Celeron N3160 processor with 4GBytes of dual-channel RAM.
  • ADVANCED PLUS run on an Intel Celeron N3160 processor with 4GBytes of dual-channel RAM and it also includes 32GBtyes of eMMC storage.
  • ULTRA is based on an Intel Pentium N3710 with 8GBtyes of dual-channel RAM and burst frequency up to 2.56GHz. It also includes 32GBtyes of eMMC storage.

All boards feature an M.2 Key B SSD Slot, M.2 Key E slot for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 modules, SATA connector, and Gigabit Ethernet.

The boards offer compatibility with any x86-compatible operating system as well as the Arduino 101 IDE, shields, sketches, and libraries. The onboard Arduino-compatible platform is connected to the Intel processor through an internal USB port, so the Arduino 101-compatible microcontroller can run when the processor is powered off and wake it up when necessary, making the X86 ideal for IoT designs.
