If your hungry for more power than the RPI B+, and dont want to break the bank then look no further.

Ordered mine last night, cant wait to get it.
There is a shop in USA that sells their products as well.

Nice board.


#3

Again I’m confused, how are they putting so much capability into a $35 dollar device? I just don’t get it. The PCB alone should cost more than that.


#4

@ Mr. John Smith - Economies of scale.


#5

It is a cool board,

You can read information about the board in the December issue:


#6

If they get the coming .NET Framework running on them, which MS will provide for Linux, then it really might be an interesting device for me as well.


#7

@ Reinhard

Mono works!!!

sudo apt-get install mono-complete

Monodevelop or Xamarin Studio for Develop c# web-applications.
For Desktop you must use GTK#.

No WPF :frowning:


#8

“No WPF” is why I never looked into MONO.
Bit if MS really brings .NET for Linux on their own, I guess it will include WPF.


#9

@ VersaModule - Where did you order it from? The German shop seams not to have it so far.


#10

As far as I remember, there’s are no plans to bring WPF to linux. Actually, they are only porting ASP.NET server core assemblies.

@ Reinhard Ostermeier

If you want to play with odroid you can by a other board.

Odroid-U3

Price: ~70€


#13

The lack of an LCD interface is the only downside of the C3 for me. Price is awesome though if you only need to use the HDMI output.


#14

Though it is true there is no direct LCD interface. However there are plenty of ways to get around that. I have a 5" capacitive touch on the B+ using SPI.

Take a gander at these links and I think you will be happy to see the results.
It all started when i was playing with my Arietta G25 board when later they posted this page for it. (check out the video on this page)

I figured if that puppy @ 400mhz can do that, then the PI would have no problem as well.
So i headed over to here: https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki#install
and tried it with my 5" LCD. Works like a charm.

The LCD I used was this.

The great thing is they are going to add this in January. Here is the post on it.

The day when I’ll be able to install a free Windows 10 copy on such a device is going to be the happiest in my life.


#16

“Windows 8.1 with Bing” is free for devices with a screen smaller than 8".
Shouldn’t this be true for such a device as well (as long as you don’t connect your 55" Full HD TV :whistle:


#17

Yes, but it is only available to manufacturers, not individual hobbyists.


#18

Partly, yes.


#19

I will absolutely buy one of these. I have a Pi right now serving as a domain controller (and I have another one scheduled to go in as a backup DC), but it just wasn’t powerful enough to satisfactorily run my TV server, so I had to go with a VIA MiniITX setup. The ODROID-C1 definitely will be, and I will be happy to leave even more fans in the dust!

The German shop has it on stock now: 44€
But the eMMC modules range from 40€ (16GByte) to 80€ (64GByte).
But no preinstalled for C1 in German shop so far.
The high eMMC price and no preinstalled one holds me currently back from buying it.
