The open source hardware/software community is growing over the last couple of years and is growing fast! We have watch all king of stuffs going open source and evolving to amazing things, with the power of the community of passionate people! Now, we have the open source computing platform that goes with the name Novena (I think is named after a bus stop of Singapore).
One of the designers, Andrew Huang, or just “bunnie” is writing on the crowd funding page: “Novena is a 1.2GHz, Freescale quad-core ARM architecture computer closely coupled with a Xilinx FPGA. It’s designed for users who care about open source, and/or want to modify and extend their hardware: all the documentation for the PCBs is open and free to download, the entire OS is buildable from source, and it comes with a variety of features that facilitate rapid prototyping”.
