RoBoard - RB-100RD - x86 Embedded Robot Board

The Roboard is an x86 Embedded Robot board running at 1Ghz with 256Mb of RAM. It is capable of running Linux, Windows XP and other O/Ses.
This board is designed for Robotics and embedded applications offering Low Power Consumption, small form factor, Solid State Storage (HDD is a microSD card) and a wide range of I/O ports including A/D, SPI, I2C, PWM, Serial and Sound (In/Out).

The board comes with a Software Library (RoboIO) for Windows and Linux making it a breeze to use the board's rich set of I/O.

The Roboard 100RD is the successor of the popular Roboard 100 and now includes the Vortex86DX Rev D processor.
This processor is the same used in Roboard 110 offering improved COMM port speeds (now up to 750kbps) and improved IDE compatibility.
