AM3352-OLinuXino preliminary schematic is complete

AM3352-OLinuXino preliminary schematic is complete and push to GitHub https://github.com/OLIMEX/OLINUXINO/tree/master/HARDWARE/AM3352-OLinuXino.

We still have to test this and that and in Monday will proceed with the PCB layout routing.

Both 2Gbit and 4Gbit DDR3 memory prototypes will be made, so board with 512MB and 1GB of RAM will be tested.

OLinuXino project is Open Hardware Linux Computer project initiated by OLIMEX. The first board from OLinuXino family design started in March 2012 and to December 2012  there are 7 boards in production based on iMX233 (454Mhz ARM9)  and A13 (1Ghz Cortex A8) processors:

A10-OLinuXino, A10S-OLinuXino and now AM3352-OLinuXino boards are on design stage, there were 9 busy months for us this year :)

    Just a question: How many people work in developing this board? you develop very fast!

    do you have plans for a cortex a9 board? maybe based on i.mx6?

      we have lot of plans and so little time to implement them all :) 2013 is ahead of us, this year we designing 10 OLinuXino boards next year there will be another 10 and why to restrict to A9 only what’s wrong with A15 ;)

        Just trying to be modest :-P
        And whats wrong about a7? A5? Big little ? ;-) did i forget any?
        If we just all had the time and resources to make all of our plans come true…

        Happy to see you guys are working on more of your plans definitely good news :-D

    Please check that topic: TI support guys are saying that am335x can support only 4Gbit of RAM at maximum

      I read this carefully and I do not see confidence that 4Gbit devices are not supported, no harm to try isn’t it? at least TI have complete datasheets and specs!

    Hi, remove the VGA output from the board and made an optional adapter that connect to the display header and offer the VGA output. You could then reduce size and price. This board will be more probably used without display or with an integrated display than with a VGA display. It’s more oriented as communication/industrial than multimedia and you already have the A10 with VGA.

    Please, Please! produce a wide-temp board like the IGEP Electron (-40 to +85 ºC)

    Any plans to make a module version? I would like to use it as an industrial application. Could be named for example ‘nano’ for being more bare system then micro

    To bad you did not include dual ethernet, the one feature that makes the AM355X series unique. It would be useful for inline sip phones. small routers (with USB wifi) etc.
    Missing sound is stupid, display but no sound?

      Isn’t this thing going to be way too powerful than what typical SoC’s go into sip phones, routers etc. ? A sufficiently powerful MIPS SoC based device might cost fairly less than this.

      I second this. We need an option for two ports for edge routing devices. If you don’t want to populate the second Ethernet port (add magnetics), at least break it out so the user can populate it. Two Ethernet ports would make this a very popular board for router/firewall projects. Also – please keep the VGA, or at least allow the user to populate VGA. Most o,f the World still uses VGA still. Access to HDMI monitors is prohibitively expensive if not impossible to the vast majority of users on Earth.

      For industrial ethernet (ex. EtherCAT) dual ethernet on PRU-ICSS interface would open new applications…
