High power of the UDOO “asks” for usage. One of many occasions to make it is to use various available periphery thus gaining a truly universal platform.

Favorite powerful embedded SBC called UDOO (S975-G000-2100-C2) already found many fans. Maybe also because of its compatibility with the Arduino Due platform (hardware and software) and mainly, it´s possible to connect it with various accessories. Thanks to a wide range of interfaces (USB, Ethernet, bluetooth, WiFi, ...) is a connection of periphery flawless, what´s also a case of the 5MPx camera (autofocus).
Despite miniature dimensions this camera provides very decent resolution and speed - for example VGA (640x480) @90fps or 1080p @30fps, or QSXGA (2592x1944) @15fps. Also beneficial is recording of a video in a full 70°field of view (FOV).
For a practical usage and application development with UDOO also serves the „Starter kit EU" containing an adapter for the third USB, RTC battery holder, HDMI cable with the UDOO logo, USB/ Micro USB Type B cable, SATA power supply cable, power supply adapter and an 8 GB micro SD card.
Perhaps the biggest “attraction” is the spacious 7“ display KIT LCD 7”–Touch 800x480 px RGB with a capacitive touch panel. By connecting of this display with the UDOO microcomputer, we get a ready-made platform usable to control various processes, with a power, which easily suits to majority of applications. Detailed information about the UDOO can be found in our article: Do you want a microcomputer which will „handle everything“?.
