This new Wiki site is being modified to include up-to-date content about the MinnowBoard family.
We're phasing out the old wiki content over at http://elinux.org/Minnowboard
MinnowBoard Wiki Home
The MinnowBoard is a compact and affordable open source hardware reference platform that puts the power of a 64-bit Intel® Atom™ E38xx Series System on a Chip (SoC) in a small versatile form-factor. This embedded board has an enormous range of capabilities for hardware, software, and firmware developers: from creating a fun hobby or professional maker project, to developing high performance embedded applications or products. MinnowBoard MAX is designed to offer exceptional performance, flexibility, openness, and standards. 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." 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.
Welcome to the MinnowBoard 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!
Read what's going on with MinnowBoard at our Google+ site. Here are a few of our current posts:
- The GENIVI Alliance has just released a new port of its development platform, GDP-ivi9. The new port is for Intel Minnowboard, complementing the offering that include Renesas Porter, RPi2 and QEMU.
GDP-ivi9 port to Intel Minnowboard and other news - GENIVI Development Platform GDP - Confluence
Intel Minnowboard joins the GDP-ivi9 family. In terms of delivery, one of the biggest challenges in Linux based systems is to provide a simple way to use and test middleware. GDP targets that problem for automotive, and to do so, providing images for common boards becomes a requirement to ...

- There's a lot going on lately, but I wanted to reiterate to everyone - we are still committed to doing open hardware development
boards based on Intel silicon, our mission hasn't changed, and we
aren't seeing anything that's currently worrying us with respect to
the MAX / Turbot design.

- We are a little late, but we are proud to announce we are participating in Outreachy
We've got a couple of ideas up right now at
and we are particularly excited about the chance to not only work on code, with participants, but we also have the chance to work on real open source hardware and see some new physical things come to life.
If you are interested in working with us, take a look and come chat with us!
