PandaBoard is a one-of-a-kind, low cost, open mobile software development platform that enables fast, easy and highly extensible development. A robust, fully-engaged community of Linux-focused experts supports the board via the dedicated site online, PandaBoard.org.
PandaBoard ES: Next Generation Open OMAP™ 4 mobile development platform!
PandaBoard ES delivers extra MIPS with upto 1.2 GHz Dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ performance, enabling software developers access to an open OMAP4460 processor-based development platform. In addition to all the existing features of the OMAP4430 processor-based PandaBoard, the PandaBoard ES also has a DSI expansion header, Bluetooth® low energy-capable WiLink™ 6.0 combo connectivity module and a switch to control bootorder.
Like the original PandaBoard, the PandaBoard ES is ideal for the development and enhancement of feature-rich mobile platforms and products, PandaBoard can support various Linux-based operating systems such as Android, Chrome and Ubuntu.
Additional information about the board and its technology capabilities can be found at pandaboard.org, where you can also gain access to a growing, active development community.

PandaBoard is based on the OMAP4430 applications processor from Texas Instruments, which features the dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ (each core running up to 1 GHz). The OMAP™ 4 platform is one of the first dual-core, Cortex-A9-based architectures on the market, and employs symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) for higher performance and better power efficiency. What’s more, the OMAP 4 technology enables rich multimedia capabilities to create the exciting user experience mobile device consumers crave.

Additional hardware and software development options are available for the OMAP applications processors, including evaluation modules, development kits, and TI and third party application software. Digi-Key also offers the following peripheral devices found useful to extend or develop with the PandaBoard:
DLP® LightCrafter™ is a compact evaluation module for integrating projected light into industrial, medical, and scientific applications.
