Mouser Electronics Inc. reached a global distribution agreement with UDOO to distribute the firm’s six single-board computers (SBCs), suitable for prototyping applications requiring multimedia capabilities and high levels of parallel computing, maintaining the performance and low-power advantages of the processors.
The boards provide a flexible environment that helps users explore the Internet of Things (IoT). The UDOO product line includes six versions of the UDOO SBCs, including the newly launched UDOO NEO, an open-source, low-cost computer equipped with a Freescale i.MX 6 SoloX applications processor for Android and Linux.
The processor embeds an ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller which makes the board compatible with the Arduino environment, allowing high performance at a low price. The UDOO NEO features Wi-Fi, 10/100 Ethernet, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity as well as a nine-axis accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer for Internet of Things (IoT) sensor applications. The NEO boards include two sets of I/O headers: one that meets the Arduino Uno form factor, and an additional set that provides extended I/O functionality.
