UDOO - Quad Core A9, Arduino Due DIY Horsepower Maxxed Out

Open source Hardware/Software:  Android-Linux-Arduino Single Board Computer

IiMX6 Quad Core A9 combined with Arduino Due atSAM3X8E = UDOO

Imagine the compute power available, possibly a hardware variant (minus the majority of the "pc" like connectors)

powering your next autopilot - kalman, opencv etc, backed in under 40 hours in kickstarter.

Very interesting. I must have missed this one.

I'd like to see a variant that includes PC connectivity where possible, even if that's only USB. Being able to accept existing Adruino daughter boards would be good too - at the moment, I am looking at this, and the whole sensor platform I have in mind is requiring a complete seperate package (Pi + arduino bridge + sensor & radio) powered from a SBEC. Integration would reduce complexity and weight, and open up some intruiging uses.

There are solutions quite fit for our purposes already, odroid-u2 for example, and there are variants of it with more connectors as well.
But sure, more choice is better.
I will probably go with a odroid-u2 as its the smallest with least redundant connectors, and 1.7ghz quadcore ARM

That's what the next version of ardupilot should look like ;-)

I'd like to see what they mean by low power consumption (and the weight!), cause the Pi isn't really low power compared to most MCUs.

The raspberri pi was cheap because it was slow.  It's the laws of physics again.

My bet is on this one. Should be arriving at my door shortly.

- Zynq 7010 - FPGA + Dual Core ARM A9 @700Mhz

- Epiphany Multicore Accelerator (16 cores @ 700Mhz)

- 1GB RAM

So on a small board you get ARM A9, FPGA and 16x multicore processing (at an ridiculous low price of $99. On top of this, all software and documentation is open sourced.

@john would be interested if u manage to get hacking on paralella ;)
