Samsung Origen, the new $199 Exynos 4210 development board

Posted by Charbax – May 30, 2011

Linaro and Samsung announced the new $199 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 development board featuring the 1Ghz Exynos 4210 processor, 1GB DDR3 memory with fast memory bandwidth.

    A little late, fortunately nVidia and TI are speeding up this market with a quadcore A9 (Kal-El) and a dualcore a15 (OMAP5).

    While the price of the development board is cheap, are the products cheap of this design compared to telechips, rockchips, via, etc…?  Probably not.

  • marvell have since a while a tricore and quadcore A9

    somebody know some device who use theses cpu?

    Oh, OMAP5 will take another year before you can buy a board with it and Nvidia, well, I hope they will get their Kal-El developer board out of door more sooner, hopefully still this year. Anyway, Samsung is not that late with A9. Freescale is even later with their i.MX6 announced, but available nowhere probably till the next year. On the other hand, i.MX6 Quad is really nice chip (memory bandwidth + GigE + SATAII!) so I hope their will sell also cheap devel board for it like they do with i.MX53 Quick Start Board.

    Where is marvell quadcore A9? Also problem with marvell is that there is no NEON on their chips and I even don’t know if there is VFPv3 on them — hopefully at least VFPv3d16 got in (like in Tegra2)

    I’m really looking forward to the i.MX6. Do you have any experience with Freescale’s i.MX series versus, for example, TI’s OMAP? Just searching around the web makes me think that Freescale has better software support, but that could be an illusion.
    Hardware specs are cool and all, but if the code isn’t there to, firstly, enable the features and, secondly, to enable the features in end-user applications (for example HW video decode in mplayer/Totem Movie Player), it’s really of little use.

    Also, the SATA controller (in i.MX) is a big sell for me. IMHO, SD Cards just aren’t appropriate to put a root file system on.

    I’ve put some of my experience with Freescale i.MX53 versus Pandaboard OMAP4 on my blog: — just go through it for hardware related posts…
