About the SABRE Platform for Smart Devices
Based on the i.MX 6 Series
The Smart Application Blueprint for Rapid
Engineering (SABRE) platform for smart
devices is the latest in a series of highperformance, highly integrated development
kits from Freescale that introduce designers
to market-focused uses of the i.MX 6 series
applications processor.

The SABRE platform for smart devices can
be targeted towards any device requiring
an intelligent display, connectivity, low
power consumption and an amazing
user experience, and comes equipped
with either an i.MX 6Quad applications
processor or an i.MX 6DualLite applications
processor. Included with the design are
links to the hardware design files, tools and
board support packages (BSP) for Linux®
and Android™ along with bootable Android
image on an SD card to get you up and
running quickly.
