Crystal Board is an all-in-one device aimed to college students and everyone who loves Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects. It features:

  • Speedy Quad-Core ARM Processor
  • Microcontroller
  • FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array)
  • Bluetooth®, WiFi, Ethernet, GPS
  • Tons of connections and sensors
  • Arduino Compatible
  • Android and Ubuntu operating system

With the starting prices of the Lite/Pro version are at $149 and $179 respectively, Crystal Board's goal is to provide the most powerful, multi-platform development environment with great performance and high practicability at low cost.

Besides hardware, the Red Crystal team is also offering an exclusive software pack that provides many extra benefits. One of the amazing features is GUI remote control that allows users to control a robot arm in real time via a WebGL 3D robot arm representation, followed by FPGA reconfiguration and Arduino flash over internet.              

A stretch goal has also been announced. If the campaign raises more than $300,000, Crystal Board will be upgraded to have USB 2.0 PHY IC, which enables high speed connection between ARM SoC and FPGA.
