Looks interesting. Nice set of I/O capabilities.

but, then again do we have to buy the carrier board for the module itself? Or is it included in the price (which starts from $59)?

I have just sent a request to their sales team for a quote for the same.

Yeah, looks so.

Well, if the module & its carrier board with i.MX6 Quad 1.0/1.2ghz, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 1GB NAND comes for less than $150. (ethernet(gigabit or otherwise), Wifi, BT are there on every solo/dual/lite & quad variants of i.MX6 so no worries)

am sooo..buying this! 😀

I dont clearly remember, this was a year or more ago, but TI devkit (module + motherboard) was around $350 or something. Clearly we have better… Read more »
