The Odroid N2L (4GB RAM Version) is a low-cost variant of our most popular and powerful ARM SBC ODROID-N2+. This project was initiated at the request of several B2B customers. They were satisfied with the performance and convenience of the highly versatile N2+.
However, they wanted to embed a relatively compact, cost-effective, simple, and still high-performance SBC into their system.
Therefore, we made it!

***NOTE  UNIT IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AS PREORDER. CURRENT LEAD TIME 3 WEEKS AS AT 28/11/2022***


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. 

It has a smaller and neater form factor: 69 x 56mm which allows for mounting inside a variety of small devices
Suitable for various standalone embedded system which don’t require Ethernet connectivity. Suitable for building robots, drones, arcade consoles, human-machine-interface devices, and many other applications with DDR4 RAM for faster performance at a lower cost.


Performance


We replaced the DDR4 RAM chips 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.
