Chip Shot: Intel-Based MinnowBoard MAX to Further Embedded Open Source Design

Today at EE Live, released MinnowBoard MAX, a new low-cost embedded development platform for Linux and Android based on Intel® Architecture (IA). MinnowBoard MAX is smaller in size than its predecessor, but is big on compute power and customization. It uses open hardware, open source software and an embedded development platform manufactured by CircuitCo Electronics. MinnowBoard MAX is designed for use with the Intel® Atom™ processor with Linux graphics, codenamed BayTrail, and designed for development with the Yocto Project, Linux and Android. MinnowBoard MAX is a versatile, entry-level development option for IA embedded and product developers who need to reduce design and development costs by making modifications to the open hardware and software.
