New Product in stock: A10-OLinuXino-LIME-UEXT adapter

Image

A10-OLinuXino-LIME-UEXT is adapter board with Male connector on 0.05″ which can connect to A10-OLinuXino-LIME GPIOs with  0.05″ step ribbon CABLE-40-40-10CM and allow LIME GPIOs to be used with BREADBOARD-1, or with A13-LCD43TS, A13-LCD7TS or A13-LCD10TS.

For the moment A20-LCD15.6 is not supported as LVDS signals got noisy when pass through A10-OLinuXino-LIME-UEXT but we are looking for solution.

UEXT signals can be used only when connected to GPIO1. On the other connectors UEXT signals will be not present.

LCD display 15.6″ experiments

Image

We complete the tests on our new 15.6″ LCD with resolution 1366 x 768 pixels.

The colors are very sharp and these LCDs are with the size of the normal Laptop displays, they are perfect for machine interfaces, signage, informational panels etc.

In December we will have A20-LCD15.6 on stock, the price will be EUR 65 and as this LCD is with LVDS interface it will work only with A10 and A20 OLinuXino.

This LCD will not be available with touchscreen panel as the TS for such big displays cost more than the LCDs itself.

A13 Touchscreen support for Debian

Image

I posted for how to add Touchscreen support for Debian for A13 in December 2012, but things changed a bit since then so I got GitHub pull request from Nikita Maslov. We tested his patches and they work fine on A13 so his request was pull and merged in our GitHub account.

On top of this he made small post on his blog how to implement it, which I link here: http://www.dimrobotics.com/2013/06/olinuxino-a13-touchscreen-support-in.html

New Product: 10.1″ LCD with touchscreen ready to connect to OLinuXino in stock

Image

10.1″ LCDs which connect to the standard 40 pin LCD connector to all OLinuXinos A10-A10S-A13-A20 is now in stock.

There are two versions with https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A13/A13-LCD10TS/ and without https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A13/A13-LCD10/ Touchscreen panel.

The resolution is 1024 x 600 pixel and with this panel you can make small Laptop and work normally with Linux if you wonder how big is 10.1″ LCD as comparison Asus EYE PC is with same LCD size.

We tested this LCD and it works fine with the Android images, the Debian support for the Touchscreen panel is still not complete. There is long thread about this in our forum: https://www.olimex.com/forum/index.php?topic=444.0 but seems for the last few month no-one from Debian world seems to care for the broken touchscreen library to fix it :)

A13-OLinuXino can drive 1024×600 pixels 10″ LCD

Image

Today we managed to run A13-OLinuXino-WIFI with the new 10″ LCD in 1024×600 pixels resolution. The Debian image with XFCE4 runs just fine as you can see from the above picture.

The Android image do not display correctly, I guess 800×480 is hardcoded somewhere in the image as even if you define bigger resolution in the script.bin the screen size remains with same size and takes just part of the LCD area. This is not something which to worry us anyway as our main interest is to run Linux on A13 :)

So soon everyone would be able to make his own Linux netbook with A13-OLinuXino-WIFI + A13-LCD10TS + USB keyboard!
