LiPo shipment problems with Airmail

Image

 

Ourr Aimail post service is delivered by DHL Global Mail. Yesterday we got notice that their scanner detected batteries in one of the shipment and they stop and return in back.

We have heard that some carrier refuse to deliver LiPo batteries are they are classified as dangerous goods, indeed LiPo batteries could cause fire if punched, LiPo are excluded as goods for DHL normal service too.

So far the road services like DPD and UPS Standard do not cause problems to ship batteries, but now we try to figure out how to exclude DHL and Airmail shipping as options when batteries are put in the basket for ordering. Until we come with solution we will just manually stop such orders, so please do not order batteries with DHL or Airmail unless you want your order to be put on hold.

A10-OLinuXino-LIME is back in stock

Image

We have A10-OLinuXino-LIME back in stock. Sorry for the delay, simple component delivery caused 2 weeks of non-production, then we needed another week to assembly boards and test them, but now they are on stock and we take measures in our ERP to prevent situations like this in future.

For these who waited long our SOM modules we have good news too :)

A20-SOM and A20-SOM-EVB first 100 pcs developer edition will be in stock next week, same for AM3352-SOM and AM3352-SOM-EVB. In May these two SOMs and EVBs will be in production state and in stock in volumes.

RK3188-SOM is on prototype stage but there is long way for the software to transform from Android to usable Linux, so if there are people who want to give a hand for this we can provide prototypes.

 

15 New Products in stock

Image

We have 15 new products in stock! Above on the picture you see KBD-BT1 which is 3-in-1 Wireless Keyboards + Touch panel mouse + Laser pointer. This keyboard works with all our OLinuXino boards both under Android and Linux and have re-chargeble LiPo battery which can be charged on any USB port or adapter with USB mini cable.

KBD-BT2 is bigger version, gamer edition, with bigger LiPo battery, many functiona keys:

Image

again it’s compatible with any OLinuXino both under Android and Linux, but you can use it with any Android dongle or your smart TV to browse internet and work from distance.

USB-BT4 is super duper mother of all Bluetooth dongles. It supports Classic Bluetooth 2.0, High speed Bluetooth 3.0 and latest Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0, so you can use it with nRF8001 and any other Bluetooth device which is 2-3-4 compatible. The dongle comes with mini CD for WIndows installation. Linux distributions with kernel 3.11 or higher should have implementer BLE 4.0 support, for the moment support for OLinuXino is not available as our kernel is 3.4, but we hope to have support soon:

We got two new ECG electrodes. ECG-SCUP is suction cup electrode compatible with SHIELD-EKG-EMG when used with SHIELD-EKG-EMG-PRO cable and snaps directly to it:

CHN-TWZ2MM is lower cost but still good quality tweezers alternative to PGC-00SA professional tweezers:

Image

 

CHN-TWZ1MM is ultra low cost amateur quality tweezers which are good for pick and place of SMT components but can’t be used for component lead forming like CHN-TWZ2MM and PGC-00SA.

Intel agressively penetrates the Chinese tablet market

Image

 

“Prices of Intel’s mainstream quad-core tablet CPUs have dropped to below US$5, which are almost on par with those offered by China-based chipset suppliers such as Rockchip Electronics and Allwinner Technology and even below those available from Nvidia, Qualcomm and MediaTek”

Intel aims to ship 40 million tablet CPUs in 2014, including entry-level Bay Trail family and SoFIA 3G platform products.

 

Time for 4 core Atom based OLinuXino…? ;)

Via Digitimes

Be ready for TuxCon 28-29 of June, Hardware Hackathon, Pimp my Linux machine and more

!blank

TuxCon is a community-driven event about free and open-source software for mobile and embedded devices.

This year as part of this conference we are going to make Hardware Hackathon at Olimex on 29/06. We still prepare the details, but the Hardware hackathon will include soldering and programming both on Arduino and OLinuXino projects.

So if you want to learn a bit more about hardware, soldering, how to program embedded devices or to troubleshoot project you have with OLinuXino or Arduino, our developers will be available  :)

Stay tuned for more news to follow :)

Openttd 1.4.0 running on A13-OLinuXino-WIFI

Image

OpenTTD is an open source simulation game based upon the popular Microprose game “Transport Tycoon Deluxe”, written by Chris Sawyer. It attempts to mimic the original game as closely as possible while extending it with new features.

Miroslav Bendik posted recently images of OpenTTD running on his A13-OLinuXino-WIFI.
