Collect one of 10 RIoTboards free, for your connected applications

March 03, 2014 // By Julien Happich
EDN Europe's sister title EE Times Europe this month has available ten RIoTboards that Freescale is giving away; the boards each have $74 value

Designed to run Android operating systems efficiently or to run under Linux, the board is based on the Freescale i.MX 6Solo processor; using the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture.

The RIoTboard platform also includes a rich set of peripherals including a 10M/100M/Gb Ethernet port, 1 USB 2.0 OTG High Speed and 4 USB 2.0 High Speed 2.0 Hosts, LVDS, HDMI and Parallel RGB interfaces, micro TF and SD card interfaces, analogue headphone/microphone jacks, camera interface, serial ports, JTAG and boot configuration interfaces. This together with a low power consumption makes it fit for the design of IoT data hubs.

Reducing system cost, board size and complexity with low power, the BOM-optimised platform includes not only the Freescale i.MX 6Solo processor running at speeds up to 1GHz, but also the Freescale Kinetis K20 MCU, the Freescale MMPF0100Power management integrated chip, 1GByte of 32-bit wide DDR3 at 800MHz and a 4GB eMMC.
