My evaluation of the Udoo X86 Ultra concluded that it was man enough for the job, so I set to designing the beast. My friend with the CNC milling machine cut me a new back panel and this evening I managed to get it all constructed and working.
The additional components, over and above the Maxi controller are:
- The Udoo X86 ultra single board computer, running W10
- A 7-port USB hub for external connections
- A built in 12V PSU
Other connections on the back panel are two HDMI outputs, each capable of supporting a 1920x1080 display, a wired Ethernet port and, of course, the mains power input socket.
I plan to take the new controller down to the G3WOS bash this weekend, so if you'll be there you can see it in the flesh.
