The AimOS Development Kit R2 is a Broadcom® Avenger board with several interface types.
We have specifically designed this evaluation board to help you with the development of your own switch based on the Avenger.
By using the R2 Development Kit, you can start your software development in parallel with hardware development. It can also shorten your hardware development by re-using the evaluation board design.
It enables you to demonstrate your switch early in the process.
