Today, we are excited to announce the partnership between GHI Electronics and Octavo Systems. Octavo's OSD335x System in Package (SiP) incorporates Texas Instruments' powerful Sitara™ AM335x processor with an ARM® Cortex®-A8 core. With all of the complex and sensitive components being handled internally by the OSD335x SiP, designers can easily harness this significant horsepower for their designs. On the software side, the processor used is the same processor utilized by the BeagleBone Black designed by the BeagleBoard.org Foundation. The entire ecosystem, from the community to the software, is available to be used on the OSD335x SiP.

GHI Electronics' OSD3358 Development Board is the official development and evaluation board for the OSD3358. The OSD3358 System on Module (SoM) provides yet another foot print for the OSD3358 family of products. The OSD3358 SoM simplifies the design even further by adding 4GB FLASH memory, crystals and other required circuitry. A power source is the only thing needed to utilize the OSD3358 SoM. The SoM can be hand placed for prototypes and also machine placed for full-blown production needs.

For fans of Microsoft products, the good news continues! We are working with Microsoft and other partners to make all of these amazing offerings easier to use with Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft Visual Studio. Click here to learn more on how to use Visual Studio to program the OSD3358 family of products.

I'm so excited about this I can hardly type; there are too many questions I want to ask.

Since this thing has so much power, technically it's possible to run the entire IDE on the device. Since it's linux it will have SSH et al. (sigh, going giddy with excitement).

C++ ?
Looks like we are moving backwards towards low level languages.
Bummer.

@terrence - Yes and no. Since .net framework is open sourced and can run on many Linux platforms, it is possible to use C# on this device. This actually will be the very first thing that I will setup once I get it.

What kind of power consumption can we expect?

Could really use a comparison matrix against the usual suspects. This thing is landing solidly in territory already occupied by well-established solutions, so what distinguishes it from the competition?

The mikrobus socket on the Development board. And a bunch of netmf drivers that can run on .net core soon...?

@godefroi - The Texas Instruments (TI) Sitara™ AM3358 is what distinguishes it.
