Open-Q™ 2500 Development Kit Overview

Lantronix’s Open-Q™ 2500 Development Kit is an open frame kit using our ultra-compact (approx. 525mm2), production-ready Open-Q™ 2500 SOM (System on Module), a computing module powered by Qualcomm’s® Snapdragon Wear™ SDW2500 platform. The Open-Q™ 2500 SOM (System on Module) combines critical elements for wearable device innovation: high performance, small size, low power, integrated sensor support, and seamless connectivity. The Open-Q™ 2500 SOM (System on Module) is designed to meet the needs of a range of Android based wearable devices including pet, children, and elderly trackers, high-end fitness trackers, smartwatches, connected headsets, smart eyewear, and more.

The 2500 SOM remains in production, the 2500 Dev Kit builds are tight BTO (but not EOL).
