The Freescale Smart Application Blueprint for Rapid Engineering (SABRE) board for smart devices introduces developers to multicore processing, low-power consumption and leading-edge multimedia and graphics applications on the i.MX 6 series applications processors. The board simplifies product design with a low-cost, feature-rich development platform that allows developers to work with the majority of the processor’s primary features with the corresponding software support.
There are two unique SABRE boards for smart devices: One based on the i.MX 6Quad applications processors (also used for i.MX 6Dual development) and one based on the i.MX 6SoloX applications processor. The SABRE board which supports the i.MX 6Quad/DualLite processors is the one described in this section.

The Type 1FX (PN #LBWA1KL1FX-875) module is an ultra-small module that includes 2.4GHz WLAN functionality. Based on Broadcom BCM43364, the module provides high-efficiency RF front end circuits. The module is designed to fit into small spaces and is smaller than a dime. Minimal external circuitry is required to complete a radio design; add an antenna, power source, clocks, processor, and associated interface hardware and the radio hardware design is complete. To ease Wi-Fi certification, the Type 1FX module complies with IEEE 802.11b/g/n. Software is available for Linux and Android.
