REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gumstix®, Inc., the leader in design-to-order embedded systems, today announced the release of a new single board computer, the Gumstix® Poblano 43C. Designed in Geppetto®Design-to-Order (D2O) platform by Gumstix® engineers and priced at $199, the Poblano features Texas Instruments' powerful Sitara™ AM438 Processor, a 3D graphics processor, multi-touch, WiFi, a parallel connector compatible with the Caspa family of cameras and embedded NAND flash storage.
The Gumstix® Poblano 43C is a spicier and more robust single board computer compared to its predecessor, the Gumstix® Pepper 43C. Sporting an ARM Cortex-A9 core, improved graphics processing and increased on-chip memory, the Poblano's AM438 Processor is faster and more powerful than the Pepper's Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 based Processor. "Poblano shows off the features of the AM438 Processor and makes it simple to customize for dedicated applications," said W. Gordon Kruberg, president and CEO of Gumstix. "At Gumstix, our goal is to create hardware and offer a simple and complete online design-to-order solution so that any designer can launch innovative marketable products."
With its support for a multi-touch Newhaven LCD monitor, a 27-pin parallel connector for a Caspa Camera and Texas Instruments' low-power stereo audio codec, the Poblano can break out video and audio embedded projects. In addition, the 11 x 7.5 cm Poblano single board computer features:
- 8 gigabytes of eMMC memory
