    99Gateworks has a driver built in to their [https://github.com/Gateworks/linux-imx6/tree/gateworks_fslc_3.14_1.0.x_ga gateworks_fslc_3.14_1.0.x_ga] kernel branch that supports this card on the Ventana Family of Single Board Computers. Allowing for 8 video inputs is very useful!

     11The frame rate and resolution of streaming from multiple cameras simultaneously (compositing) will impact performance. Even if you won't be compositing the streams and instead allowing a user to switch between cameras as needed, performance should still be considered.
     12We have not gone through all the various combinations of FPS and resolution with single/dual/quad core iMX6 and 32/64-bit memory buses but these are factors to consider when selecting the right SBC for your project.
     13Here are a few links on our wiki to help with your decision:

     22If resolution or FPS are important for your use and/or you intend to composite more than a few input streams, you should consider a high-performing platform such as the GW53x4 or GW5404 (quad core, 64-bit memory bus).
