to transfer over 2 wires.
If WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 is on the board that'll also be great.
And of course, it would be helpful if the said board also is available as
If the first tests are ok (tests can be done using Linux if FreeBSD doesn't
run out of the box) we're looking to buy a larger amount, at least >1000 to
We are flexible about prize and size of the board.
Atom is preferable over imx6, but I'll check out what you recommended.
Ps. Hopefully we can also provide development boards for anyone who wants
to help with porting out of own interest.
