HABEY releases HIO-EMB-1200 embedded Linux board

August 19, 2015 - HABEY releases HIO-EMB-1200 embedded Linux board that runs a Freescale i.MX6 processor based on ARM Cortex-A9 architecture. 

Powered by open source embedded Linux distribution with Yocto Project and Freescale’s top-of-the-line performance application processor, this modular embedded board targets a new generation of HMI (Human Machine Interface) touch computers, intelligent gateways, industrial, office and smart home automation applications requiring versatile I/O interfaces, modular design, ultra-small footprint and industrial-grade stability and reliability.

Measuring just 72mm x 85mm, the HIO-EMB-1200 is 20% smaller than the tiny PICO-ITX form factor and is designed to fit in a 2-gang electrical wall outlet box.  Unlike the System on Module (SOM) approach, the HIO-EMB-1200 (core-board) is a fully functional single-board computer with its own power input, on-board RAM, Flash storage, HDMI, digital audio, USB ports and SD expansion. Its unique modular design with eight 50-pin female headers on the top and bottom of the board allows 3-dimensional expansions by adding modules like building Lego bricks.  The board can be powered with a 5V DC input or by one of the modules connecting to it, allowing power inputs from different sources. 

Available modules support Gigabit Ethernet port, parallel camera interface, MIPI CSI,  MIPI DSI,  24 bit TTL parallel and LVDS displays, USB 2.0 ports, touch panel interfaces, multiple GPIO, SPI, 1x SDIO, 2x CAN, 1x RS-485, up to 4x RS-232, SATA 3 Gb/s port, mSATA, 1x mini-PCIe, SIM socket for cellular radios, and a 26-pin Raspberry Pi compatible low-level peripheral port.  WiFi, Bluetooth and 802.3af Power Over Ethernet (POE) modules are also available.
