Bunnie has announced the launch of Novena, a new open-hardware computing platform:

Novena is a 1.2GHz, Freescale quad-core ARM architecture computer closely coupled with a Xilinx FPGA. It’s designed for users who want to modify and extend their hardware: all the documentation for the PCBs are open and free to download, and it comes with a variety of features that facilitate rapid prototyping.

Check out the video after the break.

    $500 – for just the board – is on par with a Zedboard.
    Which FPGA does this use?

  2. XTL says:

    I had high hopes for this, but it’s way out of my budget now :(

  3. Sofia Koutsouveli says:

    Why put an ARM on it and not a x86 Intel Atom or Intel Quark? x86 is better, no?

    Intel is not good for embedded systems, study computer organization
