Giant Board packs Linux into the size of an Adafruit Feather #Linux #Adafruit #Feather #SBC @groguard @microchipmakes

Giant Board is a super tiny single-board computer based on the Adafruit Feather form factor

Via OSH Park Blog – Designer @groguard has provided details of  the Giant Board which runs Linux in the form factor of the Adafruit Feather:

The Giant Board is a super tiny single-board computer based on the Adafruit Feather form factor. We always want more power in a smaller package and the Giant Board delivers!

There are always those couple of projects that just need a little more power, or a different software stack. With the release of the ATSAMA5D27C-D1G, it’s made linux possible in such a small form factor. Listed below are the specs and current pinout of the board.

Specs:

  • Microchip SAMA5D2 ARM® Cortex®-A5 Processor 500MHz
  • 128MB DDR2 RAM built-in to the SiP
  • 6X 12-Bit ADC with 3.3V Reference
  • 4X 16-Bit PWM
  • ADC external trigger
  • PWM external trigger
  • 1X I2C
  • 1X SPI
  • 1X UART
  • Full 3.7V LIPO support for portable projects
  • Micro SD for OS and storage
  • 4.14 linux kernel

I managed to get Doom running on the Giant Board! Just testing GPIOs, things are looking pretty good! @adafruit pic.twitter.com/t8dMP0FFs3
