RicoBoard AM437x thoughts?

CNX Software blog posted this today:

“MYiR Tech Announces Low Cost Rico and Z-turn Boards Powered by TI AM437x and Xilinx Zynq-7010 SoCs”

  • Texas Instruments AM4379 single core ARM Cortex A9 processor @ 1.0GHz with PowerVR SGX530 GPU, and 4x PRU @ 200 MHz. Other AM437x on request.
  • System Memory - 512MB DDR3 (Options: 256MB or 1GB)
  • Connectivity – 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet

I’m familiar with the AM335x from Bones, but I didn’t realized there was a Cortex A9 Sitara. This SoC is interesting as it has what would seem like the next step up on the TI Sitara product line. Thoughts?


Any chance those expansion headers match the BeagleBone Black? Doesn't look like they're the right size.
