SECO, a well-known Italian company in the IT sector, has announced the launch on the market of UDOO BOLT GEAR, a new mini PC created in partnership with AMD, the world semiconductor giant. In this lockdown and home working phase, SECO and AMD have decided to offer a product suitable for multiple applications ranging from entertainment and digital creativity to the developer and business world.
UDOO BOLT GEAR is the most recent IP (intellectual property) of the UDOO product line, born as an open-source single-board computer. It is an ideal solution for smart working and homeschooling; boasts a compact case (13 x 13 x 7 cm, L x W x H) and light enough to fit on the palm of a hand. That said, it is also a powerful, versatile and silent Mini PC, usable in any environment: home, office and industrial.
