In part, this is due to the adoption of the system of the Compute Elements, that is, essentially, a module is based on PCI Express, that brings the CPU usage, RAM memory and storage space.

At the front of the device is to provide two connections to the USB standard SD-card reader and the connection for the headphone / microphone jack.
