Getting Started with Matrix Starter Kit
From FriendlyARM WiKi
1 Introduction to Matrix
- The matrix starter kit is an open source hardware kit developed by FriendlyARM for makers, hobbyists and geeks. We have rich open source code samples for each module in this kit. The matrix starter kit can work with multiple FriendlyARM boards such as the 4412, the NanoPC etc. It can also work with the Raspberry Pi and the arduino boards. We have a complete wiki for the kit and provide detailed code samples and tutorials. Users can create various innovations with these modules.
- Users can make lots of IOT applications, mobile intelligent applications etc. Each module itself is a simple one that only implements just one or two functionalities. But with great creativity different modules can be organized to work in numerous ways and generate fascinating things.
