i.MX53 Quick Start (Freescale)
The i.MX53 Quick Start board is a $149 open-source, multi-purpose embedded development platform for the ARM Cortex™- A8-based i.MX53 processor family. Designed for an optimal out-of-box experience, the platform includes a 1GHz i.MX53 applications processor with 1 GB of DDR3 memory, an integrated Freescale MC34708 PMIC and an extensive set of peripherals.
This is the first board of this kind offering a SATA connector for high performance I/O, making it perfect to develop high performance, low power multimedia and data processing system prototypes. The 3-axis accelerometer will allow development of smart devices (for example) and with JTAG, a DB-9 serial port and an expansion connector to interface with the outside world.
