The company provides support and drivers for Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) and Linux Ubuntu for the board. SBC-C90 SBC targets industrial automation, digital signage, infotainment, and vending machines.
The single board computer is still shown as being in development on the product page, so it may take a little while before it gets released.
SECO describes EDGEHOG as follows
“IIoT-as-a-service platform designed for industrial customer… with complete set of tools for digitizing the industrial infrastructure by enabling embedded Linux devices with remote management services and IIoT services. By subscribing, the customer gets access to cutting-edge electronics, secure OS, Docker-compatible embedded software, Device Manager, and connectivity in the form of modular value-added services. SECO takes care of the design, production, certification, and integration of an all-encompassing IoT solution tailor-made for the customer’s product, and closely follows the customer along their road to IoT, from A to Z. Thanks to Edgehog, customers can focus on their core business with no need to take care of anything else.
So EDGEHOG platform combines hardware, software, and support, and at the heart of the solution is EDGEHOG OS maintained by SECO themselves.
EDGEHOG OS is a lightweight Linux distribution built with the Yocto Project and featuring Docker containers for easier OTA firmware updates and app deployments across a fleet of devices. The operating system is compatible with Arm and x86 SBCs and is optimized for embedded and IIoT applications thanks to a software stack handling cellular, WAN, LPWAN, etc… connectivity. As a side note, the company has also been working on Micro EDGEHOG OS, based on FreeRTOS and running on Cortex-M microcontrollers and ESP32 microcontrollers featured in the company’s SENSE-D01 node.
They are currently three single board computers optimized for EDHEHOG including NXP i. MX 6SoloX SECO SBC-C23 SBC, embedded NUC compliant SBC-B68-eNUC powered by Intel Atom X, Celeron J/N or Pentium N Apollo Lake processor, and SECO SBC-C61 board based on NXP i.MX 8M Mini applications processors.
