Nov 8, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 2,755 views

Hardkernel just launched a new Odroid board based on the S922X hexa-core SoC. The Odroid-N2L doesn’t include ethernet support, but it comes with up to 4GB of LPDDR4, one 4K@60Hz HDMI, 40 I/O pins via expansion header and an eMMC connector.

Unlike the RK3568B2 based ODROID-M1 also released this year, the N2L features the 12nm Amlogic S922X System-on-Chip with the following specs:


  • Amlogic S922X:
    •  Quad-core Arm Cortex A73 (up to 2.2MHz); Two-cores Arm Cortex A53 (up to 2.0GHz); Arm Mali-G52 GPU (up to 800MHz)
  • Power
    • IDLE – ~1.5W – 1.3W
    • CPU Stress (Passive Heat-Sink) – ~5.4W (@1908/2208MHz, Stock), 5.8W (@2016/2400MHz, Overclock)
    • CPU Stress (Active Cooling-FAN) – ~6.1W (@1908/2208MHz, Stock), 6.4W (@2016/2400MHz, Overclock)
    • Power-Off – 0.2W

This Odroid model is offered in two variants, 2GB or 4GB LPDDR4 (up to 3216 MT/s). For storage, there is an eMMC connector with large memory support (8GB/16GB/32Gb/64GB) along with a MicroSD card reader (DS/HS modes up to UHS-I SDR104).

The product page specifies that the N2L is geared towards standalone embedded systems (i.e. robotics, arcade consoles, HMI) so it doesn’t include an ethernet port. However, it can support Wi-Fi connectivity via USB adapter.

Other features include one USB 3.0 Host port, one USB 2.0 Host port, one Debug UART and one MIPI DSI 4-lane. Additionally, the single HDMI 2.0 port found on this model also supports audio. The 40-pin expansion header (3.3V) offers access to one SPI, 1x UART, 2x I2C, 2x 10-bit ADCs and up to 25x GPIOs.
