SolidRun and MikroElektronika Jointly Announce HummingBoard-Gate: An Advanced SBC Platform with over 150 IoT add ons
The HummingBoard-Gate™ offers a wide variety of connectivity and I/O interfaces targeting the community of Makers and Professionals.
Sized at 102 x 69 mm, The HummingBoard-Gate is the new community oriented member of SolidRun’s HummingBoard™ family, providing a choice of processing power, memory and storage, Imaging sensor connectivity, Wireless/RF connectivity, and a wide range of I/Os, all powered by a variety of standard Linux distributions.
HummingBoard-Gate is the first application processor board to include an integrated native mikroBUS™ socket offering easy and simple connectivity to MikroElektronika’s wide range of click add-on boards.
From simple pushbuttons to sophisticated GPS and accelerometer modules, more than 150 click boards are available, with new ones being released weekly. Professional engineers and makers alike will be able to easily expand the functionality of the HummingBoard with all kinds of sensors, transceivers, displays, encoders, motor drivers etc.
“Our focus was to offer a powerful low cost IoT Gateway platform that can easily collect, process and connect to the cloud”, statedRabeeh Khoury, SolidRun’s CTO. “The HummingBoard-Gate sets a new level of development flexibility by providing endless I/O connectivity, scalable processing power and ability to run IoT middlewares such as Node-RED, MQTT broker, openHAB and others.”
“We’re excited to see click boards making their way to platforms with powerful application processors, like the HummingBoard is. This will unlock an entirely new potential for developers coming up with new solutions for the emerging IoT world”, said Aleksandar Nikolic, Product Manager at MikroElektronika.
