AreoCore 2CD for DragonBoard 410C

Expanding on the AeroCore 2 product suite, the AreoCore 2 for 96Boards provides MAV control to 96Boards compliant platforms. With an ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller running NuttX RTOS and an integrated connection to the connected 96Boards device, AeroCore 2 gives users a complete Linux installation on a PX4-compatible platform.

The addition of support for NimbeLink Skywire LTE modems makes the AeroCore 2CD the perfect 96Boards platform for drone and swarm projects. Have your drone text you when it reaches it's waypoint or stream data to your server from anywhere over a high-speed LTE connection.

The Aerocore 2CD for Dragonboard 410c also has connectors for 2 MIPI CSI2 cameras for computer vision applications or FPV (First Person View) control, and a DSI connector for a high-resolution capacitive touch display.

The 9-axis internal measurement unit, along with an altimeter, monitored in real time by the embedded ARM M4 microcontroller, combined with optional geopositioning with the GPS connector, gives you accurate positional feedback from your drone.

Customize Your Board

Customize the AreoCore 2 for 96Boards to your project's specific needs in Geppetto D2O. Add functionality or remove unused components with the ease of a drag-and-drop interface.

Important: Software support for the AeroCore 2 for 96Boards limited to Yocto Linux.
