    1GB RAM
    MicroSD Card
    USB 2.0 (two)
    Two general purpose expansion connectors
    Ethernet 10/100/1000
    HDMI connection
    Ships with Ubuntu OS
    Ships with free open source Epiphany development tools that include C compiler, multicore debugger, Eclipse IDE, OpenCL SDK/compiler, and run time libraries.
