Working with one of Linaro’s partners, LeMaker, LSITEC has produced the LeMaker Guitar single board computer under license, and is now looking forward to producing 96boards and accessories the same way. The final goal is to strengthen the gap between industry and universities, producing professionals with high design skills in embedding computing to society, while providing to Linaro and its partners the ability to have high quality boards in various volumes of manufacturing.
