Anchor3 Station

Single Board Computer with Anchor3

Introduction
Anchor3 Station is a small single board computer with Anchor3 System-on-Module. This is popularly used for IoT based applications and Industrial equipments by connecting peripherals like sensors, networking, microphone for voice recognition.
You can use several OSs like Tizen, Linux Ubuntu, Yocto etc.
This board provides SPI, I2C, I2S and UART and GPIO as Standard I/O, USB, Ethernet, WLAN/BT for connectivity, Audio/Video In/Out, LED for indicator and User Function, Buttons for Power/Reset/Genreal Purpose, etc.
This can access the on-chip hardware i.e. GPIOs for developing an application. By accessing GPIO, you can connect devices like LED, motors, sensors, etc and can control them too.
This board is only compatible with Anchor 3 SoM module that is ARM based dual core Processor.
