SolidRun’s latest development board looks like something you’d use to make an internet router… and I suppose that’s one of the things you could use it for. The ClearFrog Pro is a single-board computer with a Marvell Armada A380/A388 processor, 256MB to 1GB of RAM and an optional SD card for storage.
It also has a dedicated Ethernet port, a 6-port Ethernet switch and support for USB, mSATA storage, mikroBUS-compatible GPIO headers, and optional SD card storage.
SolidRun is now taking orders for the ClearFog Pro for $170 and up. A cheaper model called the ClearFog Base is also coming soon.
The Pro model measures 8.9″ x 4″ while the ClearFog Base is expected to measure about 6.2″ x 4″. It’s smaller because it has just a 2-port Ethernet switch, a single mSATA connector instead of two, and a few other differences.
Both models are designed to support Linux-based software including Yocto and OpenWRT.
SolidRun is positioning the ClearFog products as development boards for use in creating internet-of-things gateways, network-attached storage devices, or other networking, surveillance, or security products.
While the starting price for the ClearFog Pro is $170, note that you’ll need to pay an extra $10 if you want a power adapter. A custom case will set you back another $50.
