MediaTek today launched its Helio X20 Development Board, based on MediaTek’s high-end Helio X20 mobile processor, making it the first development board in the industry to use Tri-Cluster, deca-core and ARM® Cortex®-A72 technology.
To enable the widest range of smart gadgets and IoT devices to be prototyped, the board offers an extensive set of interfaces and connectivity peripherals. This includes interface for cameras, touch-screen displays and MMC/SD cards. Wireless communication is supported with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. GPS location acquisition is also included.
The Helio X20 Development Board will be available in Asia soon and can be purchased from ArcherMind Technology. Its currently available here.
MediaTek’s Helio X20 Development Board leverages the Tri-Cluster deca-core structure to more efficiently handle different types of workloads. It can delegate simple tasks to one cluster of cores, while directing more complex and more power-hungry tasks to the other clusters for smoother performance and extended battery life. It sounds to be an ideal platform for Android developers working on innovations for today’s existing and emerging markets.
The MediaTek Helio X20 Development Board is designed with the Linaro 96Boards specification, so it is compatible with other 96Boards products for other solutions. That means developers can easily incorporate their work into the Helio X20 Development Board and enjoy all the flexibility and creativity the board has to offer.
With this board you can prototype solutions for existing and emerging markets including POS, VR, advanced driver assisted systems (ADAS), digital signage, vending machines and more.
