MinnowBoard Wiki Home
The MinnowBoard.org Foundation is a is a US-based non-profit providing education and promotion of the design and use of open-source software and hardware in embedded computing, on Intel Architecture. MinnowBoard.org supports the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA.org) principles and makes its designs publicly available so "anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell the design or hardware based on that design." MinnowBoards are designed to offer exceptional performance, flexibility, openness, and standards. These embedded boards have an enormous range of capabilities for hardware, software, and firmware developers: from creating a fun hobby or professional maker project, to evaluating SoCs and developing high performance embedded applications or products.
Welcome to the MinnowBoard Community Wiki
The Minnowboard.org community supports open-source hardware development using Intel processors. This wiki is a starting place and forum for learning and sharing, including information about:
- MinnowBoard MAX boards, compatible boards, and Expansion boards (Lures)
- Firmware, such as UEFI and OS support, including Linux, Android, and Windows
- Setting up your MinnowBoard MAX Hardware
- Cool projects using MinnowBoards
This wiki keeps our community up-to-date with technical information and what's happening with the MinnowBoard. Equally important, it's a place for you to share what you're doing and be a part of the community. Get started now by using the links on the left to wander around this wiki and see what's here. Then read the How to Get Involved section to see how you can join in the MinnowBoard experience too!

- What's just as awesome as the Cubs winning the world series?
How about the fact that there are 8th graders doing science experiments on the ISS using Mindstorms, Windows 10 IoT, and MinnowBoard MAX/Turbot to collect and transmit the data.
It's safe to say there are "MinnowBoards In Spaaaaaaace!" now!

- We are hanging around at the @ohsummit today, and Tracey Erway just gave her talk, and it's true hardware is hard, but we are thrilled to be doing the hard things to make it easier for everyone else!
EE Journal on Twitter: "Minnowboard not Intel branded. Absolutely nothing in this was "easy" Building Intel powered open board difficult at every turn. @ohsummit"

- Always fun seeing when folks get new kit to play with!
Nicolas Dechesne originally shared:
I finally received by today, as a gift! I won it earlier this year in the 2016 SBC survey.. I was one the 12 happy winners..
Well, at least this is one of the board I couldn't expense at work ...
I , now, have no excuse to not run the mesa/piglit tests on x86 when doing work ...
I am really used to cumbersome and proprietary bootloaders.. let's see how this one will perform ;-)

- The Folks over at Lumina Labs had an amazing art installation going at the Portland Mini Maker Faire this weekend.
They are using a LOT of Neopixels, and in some cases MinnowBoard Turbots, to generate some amazing artwork - check out the video from our friend Rex St John, and you can find Lumina Labs online:
