The ODYSSEY X86J4105800 is a single-board computer with a 10 watt Intel Celeron J4105 quad-core Gemini Lake processor, 8GB of RAM. Available from SEEED Studio for $188, it’s basically a full-fledged mini-desktop computer on a 4.3″ x 4.3″ board, complete with support for Windows 10 or most GNU/Linux distributions.

But this isn’t just a mini computer with an x86 processor.

It’s also an Arduino-compatible device thanks to an integrated ARM Cortex-M0+ co-processor. And there’s a 40-pin Raspberry Pi-compatible header, another 28-pin header, and several other developer-friendly features.

The ODYSSEY board also has a pretty impressive selection of ports and connectivity features:

  • 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C
  • 1 x USB 3.1 Type-A
  • 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 1 x HDMI 2.0a
  • 2 x Gigabit Ethernet
  • 802.11ac WiFi
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • M.2 2242/2280 connector for SATA II storage
  • microSD card reader
  • Optional 64GB eMMC module
  • 3.5mm audio

SEEED Studio says the single-board computer could be used as a mini PC, network-attached storage device, router, media center, thin client, or for any number of other applications.

The 40-pin connector means you can use Raspberry Pi HATs with the system. The ARM microcontroller means you can program ARuino applications on the device. And there’s even a SIM card slot that allows you to use the system as a router or gateway when used with a cellular modem.

  1. I hope the wifi is 100% compatible with Linux out of the box. Lately, lots of wifi adapters require proprietary drivers not included in the Linux repositories. No wifi is a dealbreaker to me.

    1. What GNU/Linux distro are you using? Debian/Ubuntu has proprietary drivers for WIFI and GPU.
