VoCore2 Ultimate - Linux SBC with WiFi and Dock
VoCore2 is a tiny single-board computer. Use it for all types of projects where tiny size, inexpensive cost and built-in WiFi are important. The VoCore2 is open hardware which runs Linux and has WiFi, USB, UART, 20+ GPIOs and more. One inch square! VoCore2 Ultimate also contains a microSD slot, USB2.0 port, A/D, D/A, 10/100 Ethernet port, audio record/playback, up to 300Mbps wireless transfer speed and low power consumption.
The VoCore2 can be used as a super tiny WiFi router!
VoCore2 is a new revision of the original VoCore v1.0, making it faster and more stable without increasing the size!

- Please update to the latest VoCore2 Ultimate firmware for best performance.
- Attach microUSB port to a stable power source, such as a USB charger or computer USB port. DO NOT SUPPLY MORE THAN 6.0V as that will damage your VoCore2.
- The SSID "VoCore2" should be accessible from other devices within 30 seconds of applying power.
- Connect to the SSID "VoCore2" from your wireless device (phone, computer, laptop, tablet, ODROID, etc.)
- Use one of the following two methods to connect:
- 1. Open an SSH terminal ("ssh" on Linux/Android, "PuTTY" on Windows, etc.) and log in to "VoCore2" (user: root, pass: vocore)
- 2. Using USB2TTL, you can connect to the VoCore2 through another computer's USB port (no driver required). Once connected, a serial port should show up for the VoCore2. NOTE: UART speed is 115200bps, 8bit, no parity, 1 stop bit. For Windows, USB2TTL device should appear in Device Manager. For Linux/MacOS, USB2TTL device should appear at /dev/tty.usbmodem_1
The VoCore2 is now in AP (Access Point) mode. It is possible to put the VoCore2 in AP + STA mode, which allows the VoCore2 to connect to a wireless hotspot (AP) and provide wireless access from that hotspot to anything connected to the AP and Ethernet port.
