$30 CoreWind Tech CORE9G25 SoM Features Atmel SAM9G25 (ARM9) Processor
CoreWind Tech CORE9G25 is a system-on-module based on Atmel SAM9G45 processor with 128 to 256 MB RAM, and 256 MB Flash available in commercial and industrial temperature range. If the picture below seems familiar, it’s because it’s a clone of ACME Systems’ ARIA G25, and the company went as far as more or less copying most of ACME Systems’ Aria page on their own domain.
- CPU – Atmel AT91SAM9G25 (ARM9) @ 400Mhz CPU
- System Memory – 128MB or 256MB DDR2 RAM
- Connectivity – 10/100 Mbit Ethernet interface

- Up to 6 serial lines
- Up to 2x I2C buses
- Up to 2x SPI buses
- Up to 60 GPIO lines

The company also provides a carrier board called CORE9G25-CON that does not seem to be a copy, and comws with 7 USART serial port, 10/100M Ethernet, 2x USB Host, and a micro SD card slot. The board masures
EmDebian 7.1 Wheezy with Linux 3.10, and buildroot support is available for the board. The software is most probably copied from ACME Systems however, with possibly some customization for their baseboard.
CORE9G25 module is available now and costs between $29.90 and $45 depending on the RAM capacity, and the chosen temperature range. CORE9G25-CON kit goes for $49.90 and $59.90 respectively with CORE9G25 with 128MB RAM, and 256 MB RAM, and comes with a 12V power adapter, a serial adapter board and serial cable, and a DVD with the Linux source code, schematics, and user’s manual.
