Android Linux + Arduino + Raspberry Pi All-In-One Pocket Computer!

Monday, February 29, 2016

If you are looking to take your next IoT project to the next level, you may want to check out this all-in-one solution, called UDOO Neo, which merges Raspberry Pi and Arduino into one very powerful single board computer!

UDOO Neo features 9-Axis motion sensors (magnetometer, accelerometer and gyroscope) to stabilize and detect movement, as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi for wireless control via your smartphone and tablet.

The UDOO Neo single board computer is open source, combines the simplicity of Arduino and the power of Android and Linux (Kernel 3.10), with the size of a credit card. Its small size combined with its heterogeneous processor (Arduino microcontroller and Raspberry Pi computer), motion sensors, Ethernet RJ45 (10/100 Mbps) and wireless connection (Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0), makes the UDOO Neo a very powerful all-in-one solution for your Internet Of Things (IoT) projects.
The Arduino compatible microcontroller and Android Linux computer are both embedded on the same processor chip (a powerful 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 and 166MHz Cortex-M4 I/O real-time co-processor). The board itself is small and flexible and it has embedded many other features such as a SD reader (for fast switching between Linux and Android), micro-HDMI port, battery connection, LVDS connection (for touch display), USB 2.0 port, 54 pins, 6-15V DC plug, micro USB OTG power source and camera connection. You can power up UDOO NEO by attaching it to the USB port of your computer or you can use an external 12v battery to power it up.

UDOO Neo is compatible with Arduino Pinout and you can use it as a normal Arduino board by simply connecting it into your computer and programming it using the official Arduino IDE. You can also use UDOO Neo as a Linux Android computer and programming any language you want thanks to the ARM Cortex-M4 processor and the Arduino UNO pinout layout, which allows you to add most Arduino shields, actuators and sensors, both analog and digital.

UDOO Neo also embeds Wi-Fi Direct Smart Config, which allows you to connect your UDOO Neo to another device via a P2P connection, regardless of whether you have a wireless access point or not. The supported OS (Operating System) is Android Kitkat 4.4.3. and a dedicated Ubuntu-based distro for GNU/Linux.
