ESP8266 update – The Ultimate Development boards for ESP8266 are in stock

MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-DEV-1 MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-DEV-2 (1)

ESP8266 already got a lot of attention, but the problem is that this chip has more to offer than just UART to WIFI module, there is C compiler, SDK which allow you to write user program and have access to all GPIOs and resources of the chip so instead to add dumb microcontroller to ESP8266 module you will be able to put all your application in the ESP8266 itself.

The problem is that most existing modules do not allow access to all ESP8266 resources… until now, you see the untilate development board for ESP8266 now, it have access to all ESP8266 resources, GPIOs, bootloader etc.

The module MOD-WIFI-8266-DEV have UEXT connector footprint on the back so it can connect to all OLIMEX boards which have UEXT connectors, two rows of 0.1″ connectors for breadboarding and split pads which could be soldered directly to PCB.

MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-1 MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-2

For these who want to use ESP8266 just as SERIAL-to-WIFI bridge MOD-WIFI-ESP8266 is the better choice with smaller size and soldered female UEXT connector it direcly will plug to any board with UEXT.

Both boards are in stockMOD-WIFI-ESP8266 cost EUR 5.00 for single quantity,MOD-WIFI-8266-DEV  cost EUR 5.50 in single quantity.

MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-EVB with Relay, button, Power supply, GPIOs access is in production and will be available in couple of weeks! It have on it MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-DEV on socket.

A80-OLinuXino OSHW 8-core Linux computer development begins

Email banner-ch

Allwinner is about to release soon (end of this month hopefully) datasheet and info about their new 8-core monster processor with 4x Cortex-A15 + 4x Cortex-A7 and here we go and start preparing what to include in the new A80-OLinuXino.

We would love to hear your feedback and recommendation what do you think is important as value and “to have” on board, here are the major features (taken from Allwinner site) :

  • DDR3  standard 2GB, optional 4GB
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • optional NAND Flash 4GB
  • SD cards x4 possible
  • USB-OTG 3.0
  • USB hosts x2 2.0
  • MIPI camera interface
  • real ADCs x2
  • PWM
  • UART x7
  • I2C x7
  • SPI x4
  • I2S
  • LCD

Unfortunately A80 have no audio on chip so external codec is necessary if you want to have Audio connector how important is this if we already have audio on the HDMI connector?

If we go in to LIME form factor route we have to look just for the bare minimum of connectors due to the space limitation, if we go in max features direction the board will become big and expensive.

Let’s the wishes begin :)

Preliminary Product info: AM3352-SOM and AM3352-SOM-EVB Sitara processors System On Module

Image

AM3352-SOM is system on module with Sitara AM3352 Cortex-A8 microcontroller. AM3352BZCZ100 with temperature range 0-90C and clock 1Ghz is used, but the SOM module could be build with any of Sitara family processors as they share same pinout. AM3352-SOM have option for 4GB NAND Flash, have console UART and micro SD-card.

All AM3352 ports are available on 4 x 40 pin 0.05″ connectors.

The prices of AM3352-SOM module without NAND Flash start from EUR 25.90 for 1000 pcs.

AM3352-SOM-EVB is evaluation board for AM3352-SOM with these features

  • one AM3352-SOM
  • AM3352-SOM matching connectors
  • CAN driver
  • VGA output
  • LCD output
  • 2x 100MB Ethernet interface
  • 2x UEXT connectors
  • 4x USB host
  • USB-OTG
  • 4 GPIO connectors x40 pin 0.1″
  • status LEDs

AM3352-SOM-EVB price is EUR 75 for single quantity.

AM3352-SOM and AM3352-SOM-EVB will be for sale at the end of May. AM3352-SOM-EVB will be available free of charge to selected developers who work on TI Sitara Kernel support. To apply for free board e-mail us to info@olimex.com.

New Product in stock: A20-SOM-4GB and A20-SOM-EVB developer edition

Image

A20-SOM-4GB is system on module with Dual core Cortex-A7 processor. The module contain A20 processor, 1GB DDR memory, AXP209 PMU, micro SD-card and 4GB NAND Flash. All A20 signals are available on 6x 40 pin connectos.

The price of A20-SOM-4GB starts from EUR 35 for 1000 pcs, A20-SOM cost is EUR 30.10 for 1000 pcs.

Image

A20-SOM-EVB is EUR 75 evaluation board for A20-SOM and have these features:

  • one A20-SOM-4GB module is included on it
  • A20-SOM matching connectors
  • VGA output
  • HDMI output
  • LCD output
  • Gigabit interface
  • 2x UEXT connectors
  • SATA and power
  • Audio In and Out
  • Camera 2 Mpix @30 fps
  • Android 7 buttons
  • SD-MMC connector
  • 5 GPIO connectors x40 pin 0.1″
  • status LEDs

Note these are at developer edition, which means the software support still need some touch up, which we will fix in the next couple of weeks.

A20-SOM-EVB contains one A20-SOM-4GB so no need to order separately. A20-SOM-EVB is OSHW and CAD files are available for study, learn, modification, re-production.

 

A20-SOM-EVB developer edition is available free of charge to selected developers. If you are Linux-Sunxi developer and want to have your A20-SOM-EVB send us e-mail at info@olimex.com
