Snowball: interesting ARM board

  1. FYI,

    While checking what ARM development boards are fashionable nowadays, I
    stumbled upon this:

    For anybody interested in avionics, what sets this board apart from
    others is the inclusion of a 3-axis magnetometer and a 3-axis gyro,
    in addition to a now common 3-axis accelerometer.

    Of course, a real inertial navigation or autopilot system would more
    likely locate these sensors in a separate pod, away from EMI sources,
    ferrous materials, power delivery circuits, etc., but having them
    ready "out of the box" simplifies development.

    It is a cool booard, but an issue is the CPU.
    It is from ST-Ericsson, and is *may* be available for the next
    three years according to Björn Ekelund, one of the key managers
    at ST-Ericsson, speaking at the Android day in Stockholm.
    Based on the reaction from the audience, they may of course
    reconsider - I hope so...
