Odyssey: A powerful Raspberry Pi alternative that supports Windows 10, 4K and is Arduino compatible
The ODYSSEY-X86J4105800 essentially combines several systems onto one board. The SBC is powered by an Intel Celeron J4105, a quad-core processor that can clock up to 2.5 GHz. The eight gigabyte LPDDR4 RAM. The 15 W CPU sits on the underside of the board and is complemented with 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM.
The X86J4105800 does not come with any storage pre-installed but there is a SATA III connector, a microSD card slot and two M.2 ports to that end. Please keep in mind that one is B Key, while the other is M Key. In practice, this means that the former only supports SATA III drives, while the latter supports SATA III and NVMe drives. The M Key M.2 connector only supports four lanes of PCIe 2.0, though.
The SBC has an HDMI 2.0a port for outputting image content. Seeedstudio describes that the X86J4105800 supports DisplayPort 1.2a too, although there is no dedicated port for this. Presumably, the device's USB 3.1 Type-C port supports DisplayPort. The X86J4105800 can output in up to 4K at 60 Hz over DisplayPort or HDMI, for reference. There are three USB Type-A ports too, albeit only one operates on the newer USB 3.1 standard. By contrast, the other two utilise the older USB 2.0 standard, instead.
Additionally, the SBC has two Gigabit Ethernet ports, along with a modem that supports Bluetooth 5.0 and up to 802.11 ac Wi-Fi. There is even a SIM card slot integrated within the unit's microSD card slot should you need cellular connectivity.
Moreover, the X86J4105800 has a 40-pin GPIO header, which Seeedstudio claims is compatible with the Grove and Raspberry Pi ecosystems. The board also includes a 28-pin header and an ATSAMD21G18 coprocessor for Arduino Zero compatibility.
