HIO Project To Further Internet of Things Development With Tiny, Open Freescale i.MX6 ARM Board
The premier portion of the project is the HIO-EMB-1200 mainboard which Habey USA describes as “a Post-it sized, Lego-like ARM based open modular platform for rapid prototyping, quick application module development, and fast time to market”.
The board is just 72mm x 80mm and includes the processor, RAM, iNAND flash, and HDMI and USB ports. It’s designed for expandability in 3D as it were, with 200-pin headers on the top and bottom that are ready for connecting additional modules.
Habey USA boasts that the HIO-EMB-1200 offers four times the processing capabilities of the Raspberry Pi. There will be additional I/O boards, daughter boards, and other modules coming that Habey USA will open up, and the company is hoping to develop a community around the platform.
