Habey unveiled a tiny, open-spec, Freescale i.MX6-based SBC that runs Ubuntu and Android, and features stackable daughter boards, PoE, and wing extensions.

One by one, established embedded board developers are experimenting with open, community backed single board computer projects. Habey USA’s “HIO” SBC project is more ambitious than most. With its Android and Linux-ready HIO-EMB-1200 SBC, the company is introducing a new 80 x 72 x 10mm “HIoTX” form-factor that is 20 percent smaller than Via’s 100 x 72mm Pico-ITX standard. With its 10mm profile, the HIO is also the thinnest SBC equipped with Freescale’s ARM Cortex-A9 based i.MX6 system-on-chip, says Habey.
