Gumstix Waysmall Silverlode Linaro Ubuntu Computer based on TI Sitara AM3703

Orange Pi Development Boards

Gumstix has just announced the Waysmall Silverlode computer, a small form factor device running Linaro ARM optimized Ubuntu and designed for developers of commercial and industrial applications such as digital signage players and remote servers. It’s based on Overo EarthSTORM Computer-on-Module (Texas Instruments Sitara AM3703 @ 1 GHz, 512MB Flash and 512MB RAM) and consumes less than 2.5 W.

You can watch the video below to see a presentation of the device as well as a demo showing its capabilities.

I could not find the software directly on Waysmall Silverlode page. I did find some outdated instructions to use Gumstix CoMs with Linaro, but the gumstix hardware packs are not made available publicly anymore (or I could not find it). I’m sure those will eventually be made available on Gumstix website.

The Waysmall Silverlode computer is available online for $199.00.

Way overpriced, a Mele A1000 beats this specs-wise and costs 2.5x less.


But unlike Alwinner A10, TI Sitara AM3703 has open datasheets and developer manuals, so linux drivers wont be a problem.
