The model of disassembled Grapeboard in casing

Grapeboard is the most advanced and Secure (I)IoT Edge Computing and Gateway Device available on the market. The board is a credit-card sized Secure Networking Communication Device, used in sensor gateways, communication hubs and secure edge devices. It is based on the NXP LS1012A, a 64-bit ARM® v8 network processor with network packet acceleration.

The board contains a single ARM® Cortex-A53 based processor running up to 1 GHz, a hardware packet forwarding engine and high-speed interfaces to deliver line-rate networking performance. Also, the module incorporates the same Trust Architecture and software compatibility of higher-tier QorIQ LS family devices, enabling scalable, secure applications that leverage a common 64-bit software platform.
