Freescale announces WaRPboard.org a wannabe Wearable Reference Platform
At recent CES, Freescale announced Warp Board, a new open source hardware wannabe reference platform for wearable: take a look at the page! It’s based on Android!
The WaRPboard implements a hybrid architecture to address the evolving needs of the wearable market. The platform consists of a main board and an example daughtercard with the ability to add additional daughtercards for different usage models. In this hybrid architecture, the guts of the design is done on the main board with Freescale’s i.MX 6SoloLite applications processor, and a secondary microcontroller, Freescale’s Kinetis KL16 MCU, is implemented on the daughtercard which is used as a sensor hub as well as a wireless charging MCU.
