HIO Project

  • Introducing HIO

    Introducing HIO

    A Freescale i.MX 6 ARM based embedded platform for rapid prototyping, quick application development and embedded Linux support

  • Tiny


    The HIO Mainboard is roughly the same size as a fresh stack of Post-It notes.

  • Stackable


    The Lego-like 3D expandable open modular design allows for 3 directions of expansion, up and down. side to side, and front and back.

  • Flexible IO

    Flexible IO

    The 200-pin top and bottom female headers allow for configurations to bring out many of the i.MX6 I/O resources.

  • HIoTX


    The HIoTX is 80% Smaller than the Mini-ITX form factor and 20% Smaller than the tiny PICO-ITX standard.

  • Adaptable


    The HIO  Mainboard can be powered in many different ways with the Mainboard or Daughter Boards, including your own designs.

  • Open


    The open architecture  model allows you to create new Daughter Boards or add-on modules for your own specific applications.

  • Do It.

    Do It.

    We encourage you to develop your application specific HIO daughter board or add-on modules.

Project Goals

We wanted to make The HIO Project to create an easy hardware platform for rapid prototyping



Thin, Small, Modular, Open Source, Customizable
