PandaBoard on sale now for $174

Texas Instruments’ PandaBoard — a low-cost OMAP4 developer board introduced earlier this month — is now available for $174.

The PandaBoard measures 4″ x 4.5″ and is based off of TI’s OMAP 4430 which boasts a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 clocked at 1GHz with 1GB of RAM and a treasure trove of connectivity options. WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, and HDMI out capable of full 1080p HD are all there, as are 10/100 Ethernet, three USB 2.0 ports (2 Host, 1 OTG), and an RS-232 serial port. Rounding out the PandaBoard’s features are stereo in and out, a camera connector, and a SD/MMC card slot.

This is an attractive bit of kit for hardware enthusiasts and software developers alike at a very affordable price. Head past the break for a YouTube video demoing the board as well as a copy of the official press release.
