Submission + - Stackable ARM Linux Computers Allow Rapid Devel. (

Tarun Tuli writes: Virtual Cogs Embedded Systems Inc. have released their miniature stackable Linux single board computers based around the Freescale i.MX21 processor. This system allows users to custom tailor their design to particular peripherals they need quickly. By stacking multiple daughterboards together, a precise solution can be created. Currently, daughter boards available include a Camera COG (3MP colour CMOS camera), Multimedia COG (320x240 TFT Touchscreen LCD, Sound Card), Ethernet COG (10/100 Mbit networking) and Breakout COG (development tool with .1" IDC breakout of pass-thru bus, MiniSD card slot and RS-232). Many additional daughter boards are under development and to be released soon including a robot controller, power controller, GPS/Bluetooth/Wifi board and a plug-in FPGA solution. In addition, all these designs are "open" so that users can easily adopt and develop their own daughtercards using standard PCB manufacturers.
