Table of contents

imageGIZMO 2GIZMO 2 is the second generation open source x86 development board presented by GizmoSphere. Gizmo 2 provides the power of a high performance computer and the I/O capabilities of a microcontroller through the use of an AMD Embedded G-Series System-on-Chip (SOC). The board includes the AMD GX-210HA dual-core processor, combined on a single die with AMD Radeon HD 8210E discrete-class graphics, providing 85 GFLOPS performance while drawing only 9 watts TDP.
Gizmo 2 is among the highest performing Open Source x86 development boards available, providing a wealth of leading features and capabilities including an HDMI dedicated port, an mSATA port for connecting SSDs and a microSD card slot.
Key Applications: Gizmo 2 can be used in do-it-yourself (DIY) designs, embedded development, PC replacement, microcontroller applications, parallel processing, multi-core engineering, industrial control and automation, digital signage, electronic gaming systems, SMB storage, IP-TV, medical and network appliances, set-top boxes and more. Any type of application that would require high processing power, high graphics performance, and the ability to control external objects (relays, motors, lights, etc) as well as take inputs from many types of sources (sensors, keyboard, Internet)

Comment List
  • Many thanks to all who applied for this RoadTest: with 523 applications, this has been one of the most popular RoadTests we've ever had.  It is a shame that we can't reward all the great applications with units: it has been a difficult decision, but we've selected the following testers:
    • Christever del Rosario
    • Andrew Peng
    • Lucie Tozer
    Thanks once again to all who applied: those who weren't successful this time, I encourage to apply for our other exciting RoadTests.
  • Thanks, looking forward to share what my experience would be with this board.
