 What is Dragino
The Dragino lets you embed Linux into your MCU project. It is a low cost, open hardware Linux motherboard for microcontrollers. It runs Linux, using OpenWRT, and has full Ethernet and 802.11b/g Wifi capabilities.
The goal of the Dragino is to solve the connectivity problem and greatly enhance microcontroller products such as the Arduino. Dragino has a powerful 180MHz CPU, 8M flash, 16M RAM, Ethernet, Wifi and runs OpenWRT firmware.
Applications include remote control of robots, data logging, web applications for data presentation, mesh networking over Wifi and many more.
The first Dragino motherboard is named Dragino MS12.
