Pactron announced a Linux-based “Sherwood” COM Express Module and hardware development kit built around Marvell’s Armada XP SoC featuring four ARMv7 cores. Silicon Valley based contract manufacturer and ODM specialist Pactron is debuting on LinuxGizmos with a COM Express Type 5 module based on a system-on-chip that’s been around for awhile. The Armada XP is several years old, but was only fully documented by Marvell this July. The Sherwood COM Express Module uses the quad-core version of the SoC, which has ARMv7 cores somewhat similar to a Cortex-A9 design. Other modules based on the Armada XP include Cogent Computer’s SODIMM-style CSB1726, which is also available with the dual-core version.
