Microcontroller + PC = RoBoard

Thursday, April 2, 2009
What dit You get when you cross a computer with a microcontroller on a PCB board of barely 3.77 x 2.20 inches ...

Me neither but the people of Trossen Robotics came up with this, the ROBOARD with a x86 32bit CPU running at 1000Mhz with 256MB of RAM with ability to run any operating system compatible with it like Windows, Linux and DOS uploaded using a Micro-SD card from 1-2Gb.

It also has USB ports, COM and I / O ports, even has a slot for a Mini PCI card, the kit comes with a Mini PCI VGA card.

Complete specifications:
