HIO Core-Board

Core-board is the structural base and the minimal computer unit.  It is a fully functional computer with basic interfaces like HDMI, USB, on-board flash and micro-SD expansion.  It can be powered by 5V DC power adapter and has audio codec and Ethernet PHY built in.



HIO Modules

Modules can be add to the core-board (or add core-board to module) which provide peripherals, connectivity, user interface, power functionality and features to the embedded computer.  The modules can be stackable, expandable and interchangeable to provide different configurations and power requirements.



HIO Development Kit

Application-specific embedded systems created with core-board and selected modules, touch LCD panels and other components for evaluation, development, prototyping or finish products.

  • Set Up Apache and Install HelloWorld with OPKG Package ManagerSet Up Apache and Install HelloWorld with OPKG Package Manager
    In the last post, we introduced on how to install HelloWorld though IMAGE_INSTALL_append.  In this blog, we will go over the whole set up in OPKG. After we have compiled an image with OPKG installed (the only way to achieve this is IMAGE_INSTALL_append = ” opkg”), we would need a server where it holds all […]
  • Yocto Application Install and OPKG Package ManagementYocto Application Install and OPKG Package Management
    Following the previous blog : Create Hello World recipe and Custom Meta Layer.  We now have a simple program to run on the HIO-board.  But before we run it, we have to install the Hello World program. There are many ways to install program in Yocto.  The first one, we can just copy all the files […]

    In this post, we will go over on how to create a “Hello World” recipe and custom meta layers together in Yocto Project. A Yocto embedded image is built by different layers of metadata.  For example, we have the network utility layer, multimedia layer, library, web server layer, etc.  Within these layers are the recipes. […]

    Welcome to the 3rd part of Setup Amazon EC2 and Compile Yocto Image Last post, we introduced how to compile a Yocto Qt Framebuffer image. And, for this post, we will continue on how to use that image specifically for the HIO device. One of the options to transfer files between the local computer and […]
  • Amazon EC2 and Yocto ProjectSet Up Yocto Environment
    Introduction to Yocto environment set up and its component From the previous blog-Set Up Amazon EC2 to Compile Yocto Image,  We now could connect to the Amazon EC2 instance to compile Yocto images. The first part is to set up the Yocto environment.  We would need to install some prerequisiste tools like gawk, wget, git-core, […]
