SolidRun is expanding its ClearFog line of products with a new single board computer (SBC) designed to let manufacturers or hobbyists build a router or other networking products.
The device features a Marvell ARMADA 38x processor, up to 2GB of RAM, an option for 4GB of eMMC storage, a microSD card reader, an mPCIE slot, a USB 3.0 ports, and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.
It also has a GPIO-based mikroBUS socket and support for Click Boards for wireless support, sensors, displays, or other add-ons.
The ClearFog Base supports open source software including OpenWRT, Yocto, or anything else that uses the Linux 3.x kernel.
While the little computer looks a bit like a Raspberry Pi, it’s a little larger, and a little more niche. SolidRun is positioning the ClearFog Base clearas something “DIY enthusiasts” can use to build their own routers and switchers, the product is also aimed at device makers looking for a kit that they can build professional LAN, WiFi, cellular, or broadband networking equipment from. Or you can use the mikroBUS accessories to turn the ClearFog into an Internet of Things product for home automation or other purposes.
