Seco: UDOO X86 maker board drives up to three 4K screens
The UDOO Team takes the world of makers by storm with the new UDOO X86: 10 times more powerful than Raspberry Pi 3, able to drive up to three 4K screens at the same time, with an onboard Arduino 101-compatible microcontroller. UDOO X86 has been launched on Kickstarter for a 55 days campaign.The UDOO Team’s latest creation is an Intel-based x86 maker board coupled with an onboard Intel Curie Arduino 101-compatible microcontroller. It is based on Intel’s new-generation Quad Core 64-bit x86 processors, designed for the PC domain. The application scenarios for UDOO X86 vary from pure multimedia, allowing for example to stream Netflix in 4K, to desktop replacement and workstation purposes or even as a retrogaming and game-streaming machine.
On top of that, UDOO X86 is no ordinary PC: its Arduino capabilities enable turning it into an Internet of Things device, a robot or a physical computing playground. This feature makes it also ideal in educational applications: The coexistence of Windows, Android, Linux and Arduino gives teachers, students and designers the widest choice for learning and rapid prototyping.
