Freescale is an embedded computing pioneer. It was present at the birth of the VME board standard and has been steadfast in its support of the board business over the last three decades. Freescale has had great success with the i.MX6 processor family since its launch in 2011. As Freescale product manager, Alexandra Dopplinger, told me, they have over 20,000 end-customers using boards based on the i.MX6. For example, Boundary Devices offer a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 board called the Nitrogen6x (pictured below) for under $200.


Texas Instruments

Texas Instruments's Sitara AM335X processor utilises the ARM Cortex-A8 core, and PHYTEC sells complete Sitara-based single-board computers or SOMs (pictured below) in various configurations for under $100.
