This solution is actually a Pico-ITX board based on OMAP5430 with 2 GB LP-DDR2, USB 3.0 SuperSpeed connectivity (1x USB 3.0, 3x USB 2.0),  up to 16 GB eMMC storage, a SATA port, a 100Mb Ethernet port , UART, RS-323 & SPI ports, GPIOs, DVI and LVDS outputs, a serial camera input port, a micro SD card socket, Murata WiLink 8.0 connectivity solution (Wi-Fi, GNSS, Bluetooth®, Bluetooth v4.0 and FM technologies) and a built-in battery charger (1-cell Li-Ion). The company provides Linux and Android 4.1 BSP.

Check the product page for a few more details.

GreenBase GK-5432

GK-5432 is a computer on module based on TI OMAP 5432 SoC following the new ULP COM standard. The module supports up 4GB RAM, 8GB Flash, Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, up to 20MP cameras and more. This CoM appears to be in early development as hardware and software is currently not available, but the module will eventually support Windows RT, and TI Generic Linux SDK for OMAP processors and TI Android BSP will be provided.

There’s some more information on TI website.
