Nitro Duo is the first of its kind smartphone to bridge the two systems in one device while not sacrificing any of the features that exist with either operating system.
Nitro Duo is essentially two computers sharing a 5-inch display, ports, and peripherals. The first system is a Freescale quad core iMX-6 with 2GB of DDR2 Ram and boots a Droid OS on its own drive. The secondary system is an Intel quad core Atom with 4GB of DDR3 Ram and a 256GB SSD for its OS storage and applications. The Intel system boots a full desktop/laptop x86 version of Windows 10. The Nitro Duo system is managed by a Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA which allows the user to switch between the two different processor/OS systems on board. The FPGA handles power management, putting unused peripherals and processor cores to sleep as well as merging ports and peripherals such as the on-board 4G LTE modem.
