A8 Open Node

The A8 open node is the most powerful IoT-LAB node and allows to run high-level OS like Linux. The main processor is a TI SITARA AM3505 (Arm Cortex A8) combined with a STM32 micro-controller and a radio interface. It enables to run applications used in advanced devices such as set-top box or smartphone/tablet in order to concentrate sensors information coming from a wireless sensor network.
