HackUMass is the largest hackathon in the Pioneer Valley, attracting over 500 hackers from all over the country to one arena. On October 23-25, 2015, at the Integrative Learning Center at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, in 36 hours participants brought innovative ideas to life through both software and hardware projects.
The UDOO team was among the over 500 hackers from across the US participating in the Hackathon, presenting UDOO, UDOO Neo and SECOSBC-A62.
UDOO is an open hardware, low-cost computer equipped with an ARM® i.MX6 Freescale™ processor for Android and Linux, launched in 2013 on Kickstarter, that continues to raise high interest and is still unsurpassed in performance for the DIY field.
Born on the success of the community board UDOO, SECOSBC-A62 is the new low-end SBC with the Freescale™ i.MX6 Processor that exploits the potential of a configurable expansion connector, also excellent as an IoT enablement gateway, connected to the Things through Wireless connections, A/D inputs, serial and field protocols.
The newcomer amongst UDOO’s family is UDOO Neo, launched in April 2015 on Kickstater and funded in just 80 minutes. Merging the world of Raspberry Pi and Arduino™ with unprecedented wireless connectivity and 9-axis motion sensors, UDOO Neo is a credit-card size, low-cost, low-power consumption, open-source hardware board, able to run Android or Linux and Arduino-compatible.
