UDOO NEO is a small, low-cost single board computer (SBC) with lots of functionalities. One the most prominent is its processing unit, which has two cores: a powerful 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A9, and a 200 MHz ARM Cortex-M4. The former is a processor able to run full-fledged operating systems such as GNU/Linux and Android; the latter provides compatibility with Arduino, the famous electronic platform used by thousands of makers.

UDOO NEO is, in fact, a proper mini personal computer (PC): it can be attached to keyboard, mouse, and monitor, and used, for example, to write documents, connect to Wi-Fi networks and browse the Internet, or play with any of its numerous pre-installed applications (yes, it has games too).

In terms of hardware, the board has a snap-in connector that ensures a plug-and-play interaction with most sensors and actuators. The board is also provided with an embedded 9-axis motion sensor (accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Ethernet connections. All these features allows you to use the NEO to create things like robots, drones and rovers, as well as any UMI project you can imagine.
