Kinoma mini-PC sponsored by Marvell.

We like very much this kind of platform. Why? The processor is dated, it is a CortexA8 base, however it consumed 2Watts. This is quite nice. Sensors can be added without a breadboard which is both a clean and elegant approach. The connectivity of the device is good, some sensors can be connected through the WiFi.

A complete software stack is delivered together with the board. We are not big fans of the claim ‘accessing sensor values through Javascript’ although we understand its value for application developpers.

Open question: why did Marvell go to Indiegogo to fund and sell the device?
