Smart210 is a smart way to start a project.
Aug 11, 2016: Good news everyone! The Smart4418 is due here any day. A quad core module that fits the Smart210 SDK and can drive the hi-def displays like the HD101! Or the new Smart4418 SDK shown below.
Note: Thanks to the low cost of China Post, we are referring all NanoPi purchases direct to FriendlyARM in Guangzhou. You can see the pages here with links to the direct product pages. If you need a batch for a group buy or a class, give us a call or email. We can probably save you some shipping.
The Smart210-SDK is just what it says. A Smart choice for design and application. What is so smart about it? Just about everything! First, the Smart210 Core Module has all its voltage regulators on board plus the Ethernet chip. If you plan to plug the core onto a design of your own, the Ethernet is taken care of and the regulation. See the Smart210 Core Module page for more goodness. The single Cortex A8 runs fast and cool. Second, the Smart210 module is pin compatible with the Smart4418. Need more processing juice? Pop in the Quad Core Cortex A9 4418 at 1.4GHz. Now if that isn't enough, the module is ALSO pin compatible with the Smart6818 Core Module - 8 cores of Cortex A53. 1GHz A8, 1.2GHZ Quad A9, 1.4GHz Octo A53. You choose your caliber. As needs change, you change the module, not your whole design and interface. With their built in voltage regulation and power control, the Smart Core Modules can take 2 to 6V as input power.
Good news everyone! We have added the first product to the Experimenters section. Just a little Arduino Nano compatible board. We call it the NanoAT and it is a 16MHz ATMega 328P about as long as a silver dollar is wide. These things are such a blast and solve so many problems. Programs download over the USB connection and the official Arduino tools and IDE work just fine. (That silver dollar is worth 4 times as much as the NanoAT in silver content alone!)
