This month, Freescale is giving away 5 RIoTboards, worth 74 dollars each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

 

Designed to run Android operating systems efficiently or to run under Linux, the board is based on the Freescale i.MX 6Solo processor; using the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture.

The RIoTboard platform also includes a rich set of peripherals including a 10M/100M/Gb Ethernet port, 1 USB 2.0 OTG High Speed and 4 USB 2.0 High Speed 2.0 Hosts, LVDS, HDMI and Parallel RGB interfaces, micro TF and SD card interfaces, analog headphone/microphone jacks, camera interface, serial ports, JTAG and boot configuration interfaces. This together with a low power consumption makes it fit for the design of IoT data hubs.
