$25 Odroid-C0 SBC runs Linux or Android on optional battery

Filed under
Linux

Hardkernel’s Odroid-C0 is a stripped-down, IoT focused version of the $35 Odroid C1+ hacker SBC, with a quad-core Cortex-A5 SoC and a battery circuit.

The Odroid-C0 fills the same lightweight niche in the community-backed Odroid SBC product line that was briefly filled by the Odroid-W, according to a blog announcement from Hardkernel’s Odroid project. The Odroid-W was quickly discontinued after being released in Aug. 2014, due to lack of availability of the Broadcom BCM2835 chip, which was already dedicated to the best-selling Raspberry Pi. Like the Odroid-W, the Odroid-C0 is designed to run on a Li-Polymer battery, but this model moves to a much faster, quad-core, Cortex-A5 Amlogic S805 and sells for five dollars cheaper than the Odroid-W at $25.

Software: Liberation of Code, GNU Parallel, Devhelp

  • When should you open source your software?
    It’s 20 years this this since the term ‘Open Source’ was coined. In that time the movement for free and open software has gone from a niche to a common method of distribution and a normal way of operating for businesses. Major technology shifts are now driven by open source technologies: Big Data (Hadoop, Spark), AI (TensorFlow, Caffe), and Containers (Docker, Kubernetes) are all open projects. Massive companies including Google, Facebook, and even Lyft regularly release Open Source tools for the world to use. Microsoft – whose former CEO once described Linux as a cancer – now embraces the concept.
  • GNU Parallel 20180422 ('Tiangong-1') released

  • Devhelp news
    For more context, I started to contribute to Devhelp in 2015 to fix some annoying bugs (it’s an application that I use almost every day). Then I got hooked, I contributed more, became a co-maintainer last year, etc. Devhelp is a nice little project, I would like it to be better known and used more outside of GNOME development, for example for the Linux kernel now that they have a good API documentation infrastructure (it’s just a matter of generating *.devhelp2 index files alongside the HTML pages).
