The RIoTboard open source development platform is a low-cost, fully-featured, single-board computer developed to address the needs of demanding applications requiring high levels of processing power on an open source platform. The RIoTboard is first and foremost an open-source board with detailed schematics available for download for use in your design. Additionally, the RIoTboard community also provides an Android OS distribution for applications requiring tablet and mobile experiences. A distribution of Linux can also be downloaded.
The RIoTboard is a fully-featured development platform with just the right peripherals, expandability and processor power to run your open source project. The board features the Freescale i.MX 6Solo applications processor, using an ARM® Cortex®-A9 architecture. The 1 GHz processor allows for OpenGL® ES 2.0 3D graphics accelerator with shader and a 2D graphics accelerator. The device also provides the capability to drive HDMI 1080p video processing and flexible video inputs such as LVDS and CMOS camera options. Freescale’s Kinetis MCU (K20) MCU also is integrated for debug and available for added programming and functionality.
