The HIO-EMB-1200 is an ultra small form factor embedded board based on Freescale i.MX6 Cortex A9 ARM platform. It has either Freescale i.MX6DL or i.MX6Q processor with on board DDR3 memory and iNAND flash storage. The I/O interfaces include: HDMI, USB2.0, micro SD slot, serial console, OTG and 200 pin headers on the top and bottom to bring out all the display ports, camera ports, CAN, serial, I2C, SPI, SDIO and more i.MX6 I/O resources.
HIO Project is a Lego-like open modular design that can allows 3D expansion, up and down, side by side, front and back.
With size of a fresh stack of Post-It Notes, the HIO core board can fits into a 2-gang electrical box. It is 80% smaller than the Mini-ITX form factor and 20% Smaller than the tiny PICO-ITX standard.
The 200-pin top and bottom female headers allow HIO core board to bring out many of the peripherals, connectivity, power and UI resources like RGB, MIPI DSI, CSI, LVDS, CAN, I2C, SPI, SDIO, serial and many other I/O.
The HIO platform can be powered in many different ways, either by POE, through a standard 5V DC power supply, or your own custom designs.
HIO Project supports Open Source embedded Linux created by the Yocto Project development environment. HIO Project provides resources, instructions, open source BSP, recipes, image examples for both new and experienced developers. Sample images varies from minimal with basic boot up console login file system to file system with Qt Framebuffer, X11, xfce and more. Android BSP is also available for some HIO development kits. In addition, the hardware designs of sample modules are open for reference.
