Microsoft’s Sharks Cove by CircuitCo available for pre-order at Mouser. The goal of this board as per Microsoft is “unblocking our hardware partners to build Windows parts for development of subsystems for tablets and mobile devices.”

At $299, this is a board that we believe will find a home with Independent Hardware Vendors (IHVs) and hardware enthusiasts alike.  That price not only covers the cost of the hardware, but also includes a Windows 8.1 image and the utilities necessary to apply it to the Sharks Cove.  When you additionally consider that the Windows Driver Kit 8.1 can pair with Visual Studio Express and are both free with a valid MSDN account, the initial outlay for Windows driver developers is a lot less cost prohibitive than it once was.

Sharks Cove is a development board that you can use to develop hardware and drivers for Windows and Android.

The Intel Sharks Cove board supports development of devices and drivers that use a variety of interfaces, including GPIO, I2C, I2S, UART, SDIO, USB, and MIPI for Display and Camera. The primary target usage of the Sharks Cove board is for development of subsystems for Intel® ATOM™ based Tablets and Mobile devices, but this development board can be used for any Windows or Android based system which uses the ATOM™ processor.
