MinnowBoard Turbot : QUAD Core Intel Embedded & IoT Development Board

PRE-ORDER NOW. STARTS SHIPPING END OF APRIL

 

Open Source Hardware Embedded Platform 

2GB Quad Core Intel Atom E3845 series SoC

The MinnowBoard Turbot QUAD core is a compact and affordable open source hardware platform that puts the power of a 64-bit Intel® Atom™ E3845 Series System on a Chip (SoC) in a small but versatile form factor. Software is compatible with earlier versions and upgrades now allow you to accelerate product creation with regulatory assuredness. This embedded board has an enormous range of capabilities that appeal to intermediate and professional developers and OEMs interested in prototyping and bringing to market high-performance IoT and embedded applications and products.

Use this 4 core Minnowboard Turbot as the basis for your DPDK-in-a-box communications solution, as your IoT edge controller, in digital signage, thin clients, industrial automation endpoint or as a Kubernetes controller (video).

Why choose the MinnowBoard Turbot?

The MinnowBoard Turbot delivers to a sweet spot in the embedded and IoT development paradigm with:

  • a quad core 64-bit Intel® Atom™ E3845 Series System on a Chip (SoC) 
  • a low cost, small form factor
  • high performance (dual and quad core versions)
  • regulatory compliance* for immediate productization
  • open source hardware files - build your own custom version
  • fast POC and prototyping through versatile extensibility (LURES)
  • adaptors for industry standard
  • open source firmware that is accessible for HW bring up
  • it’s Intel, so OS’s “just run” and your software will too
