ODROID-C0 [0001A]


Shipping Now!

Does your project need the power of the C1+, but a smaller form factor that is easy to power via battery? If so, the ODROID-C0 is for you!

The on-board battery connector has a charging circuit and accepts a 3.7V Li-Po battery. The C0 can also be powered by the standard 2.5mm barrel connector. This makes it highly suitable for IoT projects, wearables, and other applications that require a lightweight device (like drones).

The ODROID C1/C1+ OS images are fully compatible with the ODROID-C0. Some of the modern OS distributions that run on the C0 are Ubuntu, Android, Arch Linux, Debian and OpenELEC, with thousands of free open-source software packages available. There are also plenty of custom OSes available to use the C0 as a multimedia center (Kodi), gaming station, headless server and much more. See ODROID Forum for more details!

NOTE: To have the connectors preinstalled by our team, select the C0 Connector Kit separately and add which connectors to have preinstalled on that page.
