BEAVERTON, Ore.--()--MinnowBoard.org Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to open source software and hardware for embedded computing, today launched MinnowBoard Turbot quad-core, a small, low cost, powerful open source hardware board that supports most Linux operating systems, Windows® 10 IoT Core, and Android™. The Turbot quad-core is Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Class B compliant and ready for developers to begin prototyping embedded projects right out of the box.

“The MinnowBoard program is committed to helping the IoT community get products out the door quickly and cost effectively,” said Kathleen Kovatch, President, MinnowBoard.org Foundation. “The Turbot quad-core is perfect for professional engineers pursuing embedded projects in industries such as consumer electronics, smart home devices, and industrial or factory automation.”

The MinnowBoard Turbot quad-core is a versatile, embedded board with PC-like capabilities. It runs with the quad core Intel® Atom™ E3845 processor (4 x 1.91 GHz, 2MB cache) for high performance in a small and flexible form factor. MinnowBoard prototyping and vertical solutions provide broad support of ready-made or custom expansion cards for easy customizability. Unlike other developer boards, MinnowBoard’s complete design collateral (schematics, design files, BOM, etc.) is posted in open source, allowing developers to quickly create their custom derivative design and get to market.

Additional information about the MinnowBoard Turbot quad-core, including tutorials, data sheets and other resources are available at www.MinnowBoard.org.
