Arm® Workstation – Built to Do Much More

HoneyComb LX2K is not another Arm SBC, but instead a full-fledge certified* Aarch64 based development and testing solution built by developers for developers.  There is no custom BSP with this platform, but instead install and run any Linux or BSD based distribution out of the box, try out VMWare ESXi on Arm, or demo Windows 10 Enterprise on Arm.  With 16 cores and up to 64 GB of memory, you have all the hardware resources to develop Arm apps and solutions natively on our workstation.  Increase your productivity by easily deploying and testing your Aarch64 code using native virtualization and container solutions.  Expand your horizons by leveraging the 4 x 10Gbps SFP+ ports for Software Defined Networking development ideas.  HoneyComb LX2K is the Arm64 development tool that will unlock your time to develop the software and ideas that interest you, rather than struggle just getting the board up and running.
