FOX Board G20 - Linux Embedded SBC

FOX Board G20 is a ready-to-use low cost Linux embedded Single Board Computer designed to reduce the time to market of your Linux embedded applications


FOX Board G20 is Single Board Computer built around the ARM9@400Mhz Atmel CPU AT91SAM9G20.

The main fields of application are:

  • Solid-state web application servers
  • Embedded devices enhanced with Internet connectivity and Linux flexibility

Thousands of ready-to-run applications can easily be installed on the FOX Board G20 thanks to the Debian Linux distribution and its huge application repository. Any programming language can be used to develop your own application

Main features

Two 40 pin sockets pitch 2.54mm are available to plug the board on specific application carriers or add-on boards. On these pins 3.3 Volt signals are available which can be used to implement RS232/RS485/RS422, I2C, SPI, GPIO, A/D and PWM interfaces.

A fast prototyping cabling system is also available to realize your end-user devices without without using the soldering iron or designing any custom board (Read more...).
