Open IoT SBC runs Linux and Android on Cortex-A9

Newark Element14 launched the RIoTboard, a $74 open source SBC for IoT applications that runs Android 4.3 or Linux 3.0 on a 1GHz Freescale i.MX6Solo SoC.

The “Revolutionizing the Internet of Things” (RIoT) single board computer is designed for a variety of Internet of Things (IoT) and other low-power embedded applications, says Newark Element14, a Chicago based distributor owned by Premier Farnell. Premier Farnell recently launched an ARM9-based EDM6070AR-01 SBC and HMI system. Both the RIoTboard and the EDM6070AR-01 are backed up by the company’s Element14 developer community, and supported with open source code and full schematics.
