Black Swift is an ideal choice to make your home appliances smarter, no matter what — existing devices or completely new development.
Despite its small size, Black Swift comes with fair computing power and extensive set of peripheral interfaces. In fact, Black Swift is functionally finished, ready to use computing module — without any additional boards or adapters.
Black Swift was created to be useful and accessible for everyone — professional electronics engineers as well as amateurs without any significant experience in modern hardware development.
Everything in the Black Swift project is open. Not only software, which is based on emormously popular OpenWRT OS, but even hardware — schematics as well as circuit board — will be made available to everyone.
At the same time, Black Swift is unbelievably easy to start with. Unlike competing solutions, it doesn't even need dedicated motherboard — just connect the power and you're ready to go!
Due to ultra-compact size and all interfaces available on standard 2-rows 1.27 mm connectors, Black Swift is ready to become computing and communication core of your very own hardware.
