A AllWinner ARM A10 board for embedded Linux dev.

Lime A10 is an ARM Linux 1GHz board based on a AllWinner A10 Cortex A8 processor. With its 512 Mb of RAM, an SD card holder and SATA connector (hard drive), HDMI output and USB 2.0 interface you get a Linux based development plateforme and enough power to create a large variety of applications.

The board also offers 160 GPIOs (General Purpose Input Output, 1.25mm spacing, 3.3v) offering a lot of prototyping possibilities. The GPIOs can be drive with python script thanks to the pyA10Lime python library available on Python.org.
The GPIOs can also been manipulated with the file system through /sys/class/gpio/ (see this Olimex documentation).
The HDMI output is able to display 720p video but you can also a the LCD connector.

One of the best feature is the onboard Lipo Charger so your board can be fully nomadic.

The OlinXino A10 plateform is a great compromise between the board size, power, functionality and autonomous (via lipo battery). A great choice for the embedded project.

The OlinuXino board does exists in many versions: storage ib SD card, on 4 Gb Nand memory or 8 Gb Nand memory.
This product use a SD card to store the operating system.

See also the Olimex Product sheet for OlinuXino-A10 for more details.

Intermediate level required

Using this board requires a minimum of knowledge in the Linux system area. The OlinuXino board uses Debian Linux operating system (which is also the base for for Raspbian, the Raspberry Pi's OS).
If you do not have any experience with Linux based board, we do recommend to start your first experiment with a Raspberry Pi, il s'avérera être un excellent professeur.
