Snowball developer board
ST-Ericsson has launched the Igloo open source community and the Snowball developer board to accelerate the development of system and software innovations that fully harness the capabilities of its cutting-edge smartphone and tablet platforms. Together, the low cost, feature-rich developer board and community will facilitate and drive innovation of software for Android and Ubuntu embedded devices based on ST-Ericsson’s platforms.
The production-grade small-sized Snowball developer board combines ST-Ericsson’s Nova A9500 dual-core application processor, with innovative MEMS (3D gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, and barometer), GPS and connectivity features. Calao Systems designed the board, while Linaro developed the board’s low-level software, which is optimized for the Nova A9500’s ARM dual Cortex A9-based architecture.
