WaRP7 speeds and eases development of Internet of things and wearable devices by addressing technology challenges and freeing developers to focus on creating differentiated features. The platform consists of a main board and a daughter card. The main board is based on the NXP i.MX 7Solo applications processor that features an advanced implementation of the ARM® Cortex®-A7 core, as well as the ARM® Cortex®-M4 core.。
This unique heterogeneous multicore architecture enables low-power modes critical for most IoT end node and wearable designs, but also provides the power to drive a higher level operating system and a rich user interface. The daughter card is based on a flexible design with sensors to collect a range of data and the MikroBus™ expansion socket opens users to over 200 Click Boards™, allowing rapid prototyping across all potential wearable usage models. All components included in this system were selected based on low power, small form factor and cost. WaRP7 includes extensive on-board connectivity including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and other hardware features such as sensors, 12GB multi-chip memory module, rechargeable battery and power management.
Full-featured Linux® operating systems ease development effort for software developers; supports extensive UI capabilities and connectivity stacks. The open source design allows developers to take the platform as a starting point and innovate without licensing restrictions.
