What is SIE

SIE is an adaptation of Ben NanoNote to cater to hardware hackers. Compared to the Ben, we added an FPGA and I/O ports. SIE does not have a case, and does not implement a local keyboard. Removing the Nanonote keyboard freed up a significant number of i/o pins needed for applications such as controlling a robot.
