GreenBase Technology debuts the Green Developing Kit GDK-4430 based on the industry Q-Seven open standard. The kit provides a quick prototyping platform with the Q-Seven module, a 3.5” small form factor base board and a 7” Touch LCD aiming at high performance yet low power consumption multi-media applications like gaming, digital signage, medical devices and hand-held terminal. Android 4.0.3 is available and Windows on ARM version will be available later. The GDK-4430 is a developing kit for the GreenBase Q-Seven standard.
It meets Q-Seven minimum requirements compliance but with GBT proprietary pin definition leveraging most of features of TI ARM and SoCs. Based on Texas Instruments OMAP4430 it features top performance of dual ARM Cortex A9 cores providing with PC-like web browsing, 1080p full HD video record and playback, intuitive user interfaces, location-based services and next-generation social networking applications for consumer devices which should be the best performance for high performance multimedia embedded applications as well.
Following the Q-Seven standard, more modules are developed by GBT with full range of ARM SoC from Texas Instrument like AM3874 with Cortex A8 single core and DM8148 with Cortex A8 and DSP embedded. They will have pin to pin compatibility, enabling fast, easy, and economical system upgrade without replacing the whole circuit boards. Various operating systems including Windows on ARM, Windows Embedded Compact 7, Linux 2.6.x and Android 2.3/4.0 are supported by GBT products. The GBT Q-Seven module GQ-4430 core is offering a best combination of ARM Dual Cortex A9 MPCore supporting symmetric multiprocessing, a high-performance programmable graphics engine POWERVR SGX540 ; an Image Signal Processor for unparalleled video and imaging performance and IVA 3 Hardware accelerator delivers true 720p multi-standard HD record and playback. Together with customer application base board it will provide the high performance and flexible computing platform for most of industrial and commercial portable equipments.
