Next Generation OMAP™4 mobile software development platform featuring Dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ with Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) at 1.2 GHz each. Allows for 150% performance increase over previous ARM Cortex-A8 cores.
Key Features and Benefits
- Dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ with Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) at 1.2 GHz each. Allows for 150% performance increase over previous ARM Cortex-A8 cores.
- Full HD (1080p) multi-standard video encode/decode
- Imagination Technologies’ POWERVR™ SGX540 graphics core supporting all major API's including OpenGL® ES v2.0, OpenGL ES v1.1, OpenVG v1.1 and EGL v1.3 and delivering 2x sustained performance compared to the previous SGX530 core
- Low power audio
PandaBoard is optimized to run various mobile open source software distributions such as Android, Ubuntu, and more. The the pandaboard.org community offers software support for various distributions listed on the PandaBoard.org website.
Information for PandaBoardES Rev B3 users
PandaBoardES Rev B3 uses a different DDR memory device than the previous versions ( Rev B2 and B1). In order to run the current software (that runs on Rev B2 and B1) on Rev B3, some changes are required to the memory controller setting which is document in the PandaBoardESRevB3 Developers found under the documents tab.
Uboot and Kernel source that runs on PandaBoard ES Rev B3 can also be found at https://github.com/svtronics
