Linux-enabled kit targets custom SoC developers

Faraday Technology has begun shipping a system-on-chip dev kit aimed at developers of custom SoCs. The kit’s baseboard is built around Faraday’s A380 SoC, which boasts a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, a Faraday-developed RISC core, and a high speed expansion bus for interfacing with FPGA daughtercards, and comes with Linux 3.3 and Android 4.x BSPs.
