Italian microcontroller company, Dave, has announced a new board based on TI's Sitara AM3505/AM3517 SoCs that may be just what you need for that robot you're about to send into the desert (or the Arctic). The new board is called the Lizard and it tolerates temperatures ranging from -40 F to 185 F. The Superscalar ARM Cortex-A8 processor clocks in at 500MHz. You get 256MB of DDR2 RAM, 2GB of NAND flash, 2 SD flash expansion ports, OpenGL acceleration, touchscreen controller, fast ethernet port, 2 USB host ports, 1 USB OTG port, CAN, 3 UARTs, 2 I2C, SPI, I2S, a keypad controller, JTAG, and some GPIO. Yes, it runs GNU/Linux. But be prepared to spend some money because those temperature tolerances come at the cost of $748 USD.
