Penguin Edge 6502 Reference Design

Penguin Edge has created a reference carrier that consists of a mezzanine card to which the LGA SoM is soldered. The mezzanine card connects to the carrier board through the standard 100-pin B2B connectors that are standard to Penguin Edge SoMs. The carrier brings out all native interfaces of the SDA660 processor including USB-C to help create and optimize your products with the shortest turnaround time. An Off-the-shelf camera module accessory is available that works out of the box with this platform.
