ODROID-C2

Odroid-C2I received my ODROID-C2 from AmeriDroid, a couple of weeks ago and have gotten some time to play with it a little. It’s a fun, capable microcomputer. The specs are pretty impressive for such a small footprint:
* Amlogic ARM® Cortex®-A53(ARMv8) 1.5Ghz quad core CPU
* Mali™-450 GPU (3 Pixel-processors + 2 Vertex shader processors)
* 2Gbyte DDR3 SDRAM
* Gigabit Ethernet
* HDMI 2.0 4K/60Hz display
* H.265 4K/60FPS and H.264 4K/30FPS capable VPU
* 40pin GPIOs + 7pin I2S
* eMMC5.0 HS400 Flash Storage slot / UHS-1 SDR50 MicroSD Card slot
* USB 2.0 Host x 4, USB OTG x 1 (power + data capable)
* Infrared(IR) Receiver
* Ubuntu 16.04 or Android 5.1

I’ve been playing around with Ubuntu 16.04 and it works well (MySQL-5.7 breaks with dist-upgrade, I think that is an Ubuntu issue.)

The GPIO pin output is different from the Raspberry Pi, but I was able to get the SainSmart Raspberry Pi relay working with minimal fuss.
