Alico Kinetic 3500 OMAP FPGA Sensor Development Kit

Alico Systems introduced the Kinetic 3500 OMAP FPGA Sensor Development Kit. The Alico Kinetic 3500 SDK is a turn-key embeddable sensor development kit based on open source LInux software and includes critical device drivers and sample code. The Kinetic 3500 kid is priced at $1,695 ($1,945 with GPS option). It is ideal for embedded industrial, rugged portable, high-speed data logging, vehicular, robotic, location tracking, motion control, and high speed video encoder/decoder applications.
