UDOO: a Linux/Arduino compatible board on Steroids

Filed under

Hardware

In the past months we presented the Arduino Yun and Arduino Galileo boards. Today we present you a new board, quite more powerful, but still Arduino compatible and powered with GNU/Linux. It’s an all Italian board called UDOO.
Indeed, now almost every month we see the birth of a new platform that integrates processors capable of hosting GNU/Linux with the Arduino architecture, in emulated form, or with a dedicated microcontroller. Now is the time to UDOO but we already see looming on the horizon the availability of Arduino Three, and who knows what other boards in the meantime.
UDOO project comes from the idea of the founders to provide a tool for digital learning: high computing power combined with the world of microcontrollers with maximum ease of use, will form a new generation of designers, makers and developers with the knowledge necessary to develop projects in the fields of digital / physical computing.

Linux in the Mainstream. What Will it Take?

While most of these articles are just rehashing the same points, they are valid points nevertheless. And with all this ruckus over Linux, it begs the question: if Linux is so much better, why is it not competing for users at the same level that Windows is? Read more
