Cooling Fan XU4
The fan motor speed is controlled by CPU temperature proportionally
The low-cost variant of our most popular and powerful ARM SBC ODROID-N2+.
*No Warranty/Return will be accepted if Hardkernel proposed/provided power adapter is not used with the system board. The system board comes without Power Adapter, and you can purchase it as per Hardkernel's recommendations.
While the letter ‘L’ does not refer to any specific word, it has various meanings such as Little, Leaf, Lynx, Lovely, Lumen, LPDDR and Light. We removed some features which were available on the N2+ to reduce the material cost and to minimize the PCB form factor. Ethernet, RTC, SPI-Flash, OTG port, Analog audio output, IR receiver, three USB 3.0 ports and the large heatsink frame were removed.
If you need wireless connectivity, consider using a USB adapter like our WiFi Module 5BK.
The DDR4 RAM chips were replaced with a single LPDDR4 chip to minimize the PCB form factor and reduce power consumption. As a bonus, around 20% higher DRAM interface clock frequency is an obvious and important improvement. We could find 10% to 20% of increased system performance compared to the original N2+ in various benchmark test results.
The GPU benchmark glmark2-es2 also showed about 10% of increased performance which is very similar to the improvement of the memory bandwidth (MBW) test.
The N2L power consumption is obviously lower than ODROID-N2+ thanks to the less power demanding LPDDR4 memory and the removal of some components.
We used our SmartPower3 (see https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/smartpower-iii/) to test and measure the ODROID-N2L power consumption while performing specific activities.

The stock cooling fan must always rotate to avoid thermal throttling when running a very heavy computing load with an overclocked 2.4Ghz CPU clock frequency.
*If your system design doesn’t allow moving parts such as a cooling fan, you will need to replace it with a passive heatsink. In this scenario, you may need to limit the maximum CPU frequency to lower than 2Ghz if the working ambient temperature is high and computing load is very heavy.
Since the heat dissipation characteristics are somewhat diminished, the maximum clock frequency of the CPU may be slightly lowered and will need to be taken into consideration according to the purpose.*
Because the DRAM chip was changed from DDR4 to LPDDR4, the existing OS image for N2/N2+ will NOT boot on N2L.
It is necessary to modify the boot loader files at a minimum.
Currently, the following OS images for N2L have been prepared.
|A||Amlogic S922X CPU||G||1 x Micro SD Slot|
|B||LPDDR4 RAM||H||1 x UART for System Console|
|C||DC Power Jack||I||1 x Fan Connector|
|D||1 x HDMI 2.0||J||40 x GPIO Pins|
|E||Up: 1 x USB 3.0, Down: 1 x USB2.0||K||1 x eMMC Module Socket|
|F||1 x MIPI DSI 4Lane Connector(TBD)|
Note: Input voltage should be no more than rated voltage,or the module will be burnt
A new and upgraded version of the USB-UART Module Kit featuring a USB-C Port.
Recommanded for those who wants to protect the ODROID-N2 board from dust and the elements.
Fully assembled 3.2inch display with 320x240 pixels TFT LCD and a resistive touch overlay. Just plug it on top of ODROID-C1. 2x13 tall female header is already soldered on the PCB.
CM108AH is a highly integrated single chip USB audio solution.
All essential analog modules are embedded in CM108AH, including dual DAC and headphone amplifier, ADC, microphone booster, PLL, regulator, and USB transceiver.
Highly recommended item to protect a ODROID-XU4.
VuShell is a laser cut acrylic enclosure for the ODROID-VU7Plus. You can make your own desktop PC with the fancy VuShell. VuShell allows for two different viewing angles.
This Odroid Case Type 5 is made for the user who needs high bandwidth network with high capacity storages for the strong performing computing system.
A single native (non-USB) SATA 3.0 port on the ODROID-M1 is provided for use with a 2.5inch HDD or SSD NAND Memory storage device. This SATA interface delivers near 500MB/s of sequential access. The SATA mount kit contains a SATA Data cable, a SATA Power cable, and a mount plate with some support screws. However, since the SATA power port doesn’t have a 12Volt power rail, a separated external 12Volt SATA power supply is required to use a 3.5inch HDD.
Works with the ODROID-C2 / C1+. This is not compatible with the original ODROID-C1.
This “Case Type 6” is designed for the user who needs high performance network with a minimal or regular range storages.
The ODROID-C4 Black case has openings for all outputs including the GPIO port making it a great fit projects that are connected to external hardware.
