Giveaway Week – Freescale SABRE Lite Development Board

Here’s a development board for a change. Freescale SABRE Lite is a board powered by Freescale i.MX 6Quad processor that I got during a giveaway organized on Element14…  It’s a great board for Linux development thanks to the extensive documentation released by Freescale.

After writing a short unboxing and quick start guide post, I planned to try a few more things on the board, but as I ended up owning Wandboard Dual and Quad boards, the mbest made board ended up collecting dust, so it’s much better to give it to somebody who certainly make good use of it.
