Last year, the $9 Chip computer made waves on Kickstarter, raising more than $2 million beyond its pledge goal of $50,000.

Now, the company behind the device has unveiled its successor, a single-board computer aimed at engineers, start-ups, and manufacturers looking to develop a smart gadget.

The Chip Pro is built around the GR8, a 32-bit 1GHz system-on-a-chip that s manufactured by Allwinner.

It s fitted with an ARM Mali-400 GPU with RAM included in the processor package, according to a report from The Register.

The device is intended to simplify the process of selecting and implementing a system-on-a-chip solution.

At present, there are a wide array of different choices, some of which, however, don t have accurate technical documentation, or an easy method of sourcing large orders.
