Graphics Processing Development Boards for Researchers

The ARM University Program recommends the following development boards for research on Graphics Processing:

Introducing the Samsung Origen Low Cost Development Board, based on the Samsung Exynos 4210 Processor.

The low-cost origenboard development platform is a high performance solution for development of content for the high end devices. The platform is based on the Samsung Exynos 4210 applications processor featuring a dual core Cortex-A9 CPU in addition to a Mali-400 MP4 GPU to accelerate 2D and 3D graphics.

The SoC on this board is featured in Samsung’s award winning Galaxy S2 handset and is capable of 1080p video encode and decode and features a host of peripherals. The platform supports Linux and Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box.

Snowball is a low power, low cost Single Board Computer based on the ST-Ericsson Nova A9500 processor (Dual Cortex A9 + Mali 400 GPU) that targets hobbyists and professional developers wanting to prototype new embedded designs. It will help developers to create applications for Android, Meego and Ubuntu.

Features include ARM Dual Cortex A9 @ 1GHz, Mali 400 GPU, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN, Bluetooth BT4.0/ BLE. (ex Antenna), GPS (Ex. Antenna), 3x Expansion Connectors (FSMC, HSI, Audio, MiPi CSI / Camera, LCD, MiPi DSI, UART, SPI, I2C, GPIO), 1GB LP-DDR2, and 4 / 8GB e-MMC.
