BANGALORE, INDIA: Innovators, engineers, developers and hobbyists can now effortlessly create state-of-the-art products with the flexible, user-friendly HawkBoard, an open source embedded processor development board.
This low-cost development board provides processing power through a robust ARM and digital signal processor (DSP) and has multiple expansion and interface options to allow users to create end-use applications such as portable test and measurement systems, portable medical devices, public safety and military radios, power protection systems, networked audio/video servers and receivers, VoIP solutions and Qt development applications.
The HawkBoard is available for global shipping from Farnell.
Offering portability and diversity in its small, 9x10-cm form factor, the HawkBoard, based on the OMAP-L138 processor from Texas Instruments (TI), enables Linux developers to harness the power of floating-point DSP to design unique open source applications.
Developers can utilize ARM without DSP with TI's pin-for-pin compatible AM1808 microprocessor from the Sitara family of processors. This low-power board requires only a five-volt power supply, allowing portability by connecting to a laptop.
