Arduino Reveals Portenta X8: $240 Industrial Internet of Things SBC

Arduino has announced the Portenta X8, not quite its first Linux-based computer (hands up if you remember the Yun) but certainly its first to combine an SBC and a microcontroller board in one Arm-based package. As spotted by CNX-Software.

The unassuming package, about the same size as a Raspberry Pi Zero, contains a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor running at up to 1.8 GHz, an additional Arm Cortex-M4 core up to 400 MHz, 3D and 2D GPUs, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of eMMC storage, a USB-C port, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a gigabit Ethernet interface (not port), and a separate microcontroller. The smaller chip, the same as in the Portenta H7, sees an Arm Cortex-M7 core at up to 480 MHz paired with an Arm 32-bit Cortex-M4 core at up to 240 MHz with an adaptive real-time accelerator. There’s 1MB of RAM and 2MB of flash storage too, along with an NXP SE050C2 crypto chip for hardware security including TPM.
