Hardware is an integral part of the prpl experience

Over time, prpl is looking develop a certification program for hardware that’s open and fits the needs of industry and the open source community. Here are a few boards that fit our view of what certified hardware might be like.


MIPS Creator CI-20
The MIPS Creator CI20 platform is a feature laden MIPS/Imagination Linux and Android development system. It incorporates an Ingenic JZ4780 SoC which includes a 1.2GHz dual core MIPS32 processor and Imagination PowerVR SGX540 GPU. The CI20 board provides comprehensive connectivity, multimedia capabilities and substantial RAM and flash. CI20 is preloaded with Debian7, and other distros are being packaged to be available for download soon.

  1. You would certify the MIPS Creator CI20 as “hardware that’s open and fits the needs of industry and the open source community”? Is there an Open Source driver for the video chip or does this device require proprietary binaries?
