Building your i.MX50 based design just got easier. With the introduction of our Smart Application Blueprint for Rapid Engineering (SABRE) platform for eReader based on i.MX50 reference design and our i.MX50 Evaluation Kit (EVK) you now have two development platforms to get your design to market quickly. These pages contain the software, design and development tools you need to help accelerate your development cycle.
The SABRE platform for eReaders provides a reference design enabling EPD display, touch control, audio playback as well as the ability to add WLAN, a 3G modem or Bluetooth.Additionally, the SABRE platform for eReaders was designed to facilitate software development with the ultimate goal of faster time to market through the support of both Linux® and Android™ operating systems
The i.MX50 evaluation kit (EVK) offers developers a price effective platform to develop, debug, and demonstrate their i.MX50-based solution. The EVK supports all of the features of the i.MX50 family in a single-board design. Developers can get started for <$400 and directly output via the HDMI connector, or purchase the optional LCD module or optional EPD module for maximum display flexibility. The EVK features readily available design files and board support packages (BSPs) with optimized drivers.
With production-ready software components, an optimized OS and a system-validated BSP, designers have the tools to test and maximize the performance of the applications they have developed
