Quadro IoT Wi-Fi Kit

Arrow Quadro IoT kit

The Quadro board is an Arduino-Uno-sized board carrying a small (18 × 30 mm) circuit board which in turn sports a highly integrated system-on-chip (SoC) by Murata. There are two SoC versions: the 1GC and the 1GC-Imp05. Both contain a Cypress CYW43907 that in turn contains an ARM Cortex-R4 core, 2 MB SRAM, and a 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz Wi-Fi/Ethernet controller. Besides that there is also a crypto engine and RF circuitry inside. The 1GC-Imp05 is compliant with Electric Imp, a hard- and software platform for secure IoT. The small circuit board is intended as a production-ready, fully-certified compute and communication module.

i.MX7 96Board

Arrow i.MX7 96Board

This Linaro 96Boards Consumer Edition (CE) compliant board is based on an i.MX 7Dual System-on-Chip (SoC). Boasting three processor cores — a dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 running at 1 GHz plus an ARM Cortex-M4 —and with 512 MB DRAM this definitely is a powerful board. The SoC’s so-called Heterogeneous Multicore Processing architecture enables it to run Linux or Android on the Cortex-A7 cores while executing an RTOS like FreeRTOS on the Cortex-M4 core. Furthermore, the SoC integrates at least one piece of almost every peripheral you can imagine.
