Somiqboard is Beagleboard compatible platform designed to carry new System on Module family SomIQ. The board features industry standard interfaces like High-Speed USB 2.0, USB-OTG, HDMI (DVI-D), SD/MMC, LCD-TFT signals as well as an audio codec with sound capture and stereo in/out, S-Video output and CCD extension connector for Leopard Imagine camera modules.

To enable third party accessories compatible with Beagleboard-XM or Pandaboard we added three expansion connectors (IO and LCD) which are 100% compatible in electrical and mechanical parameters with Beagleboard-XM or Pandaboard if you use the SomIQ-AM37 module.
