We came across it a while ago and in fact negotiated with them to change
the processor
to i.MX6. But they preferred to stick to i.MX53. But I figured we could
still use it. waiting for its release to order it.

For i.MX6 what we done instead is to get a tablet vendor to create a custom
of an dual core i.MX6 tablet with HAB enabled and with tamper detect. Just
placed the proto
order today. Ready version I think will be sold by the vendor for about 300
We hope to have a virtualized android on top of genode for it.

But the USB armory is ideal for security key or gateway type apps. We plan
to use both.

> Hello,

> In short, USB Armory is an i.MX53-based computer in the form factor of a
> USB stick. It is meant for security applications such as VPNs,
> authentication tokens, and encrypted storage. It is based on the
> FreeScale i.MX53 SoC, which it is well supported by Genode, i.e., Genode
> can be used as secure-world OS besides Linux running in the normal world.
> Personally, I find the project interesting because it strives to be an
> 100% open platform, which includes hardware, software, and firmware.
> Hence, at Genode Labs, we already started investigating possible
> Genode-based applications for it.
> As of now, the campaign has reached about 55% of the funding goal. If
> you are interested in such a platform, please consider joining in to
