FireFly: Evolving Mobile Device Platforms with the Intel Atom SBC

PDFFireFly product brochure (1.73MB)

At a fraction of the size of a typical PC motherboard, the SECO USA FireFly™ is one of the most energy efficient, highest performing, complete solutions for OEM developers of ultra-mobile PCs, mobile Internet devices and other mobile battery operated devices. Built around an Intel Atom processor and System Controller Hub, the SECO USA FireFly can be used by itself or with an expansion board for application specific functionality. As a stand-alone board, the FireFly offers a full range of peripherals including: USB 2.0 Host, USB 2.0 Client, video output, serial port, touch screen Intel Inside controller, and microSD slot. Battery charging and wide voltage power input are available as well. For expandability, the FireFly has a daughter card connector with industry standard interfaces, such as PCI express, USB, SMBus and SDIO, making system integration easy.

The FireFly development platform provides the entry point for Intel Atom-based designs and comes with the hardware, software, and technical support that developers need to get their designs off the ground.
