ST-Ericsson launches the Igloo open source community
The production-grade small-sized Snowball developer board combines ST-Ericsson’s newly announced Nova A9500 dual-core application processor, with MEMS-based 3D gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, and barometer, together with GPS and connectivity features. Calao Systems designed the board, while Linaro developed the board’s low-level software, which is optimized for the Nova A9500’s ARM dual Cortex A9-based architecture.
At the heart of the Igloo community will be the web portal, where device developers, manufacturers and application developers can gather, exchange information and ideas, and even solve problems collectively. ST-Ericsson has selected open source specialist Movial to develop, support and run the Igloo community. Two versions of the Snowball developer board will be sold by Calao Systems from the second quarter of 2011.
