Carrier Boards - Colibri ARM Family

The Colibri family offers a host of carrier boards, which can be used for engineering development and mass-production of end-products, based on the Colibri family of modules. The Colibri Evaluation Board is ideal for engineering development on Colibri modules as it includes all the interfaces supported by the modules. Furthermore, the Iris Carrier Board, the Viola Carrier Board and the Orchid Carrier Board, come with various form-factors, supported interfaces and price points, thus offering flexibility to the end-users to choose an off-the-shelf carrier board based on the requirements of the end-product.
