LIME2 get better now with eMMC Flash A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC

A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC

A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC was developed first for customer of ours, but after we saw the result we decided that it’s good to add it in our web shop.

What difference make eMMC instead of NAND Flash?

eMMC behaves like SD-card so no need for special drivers, you write on it as you write on SD-CARD, it’s faster than NAND Flash, and it’s more reliable.

The eMMC Flash we use is industrial grade -40+90C SLC Flash from Micron. All other functionality remains same. Note thatA20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC is still not 100% industrial temperature grade, the DDR3 and Ethernet PHY are in commercial temperature grade (0-90C for the DDR3 and 0-70C for Ethernet PHY), we have industrial grade DDR3 and can build A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC with such memories,so the next step to complete industrial grade temperature board is to find proper industrial grade Ethernet PHY chip.

Metal Frame Box for OLinuXino LIME with 10″ LCD is now in stock

LCD10-METAL-FRAME-1

Our LCD10-MATAL-FRAME box for LIME/LIME2 is now in stock. We offer it only in black color.

Like with LCD7-METAL-FRAME all connectors of LIME are exposed on two sides on the frame box:

LCD10-METAL-FRAME-3

LCD10-METAL-FRAME-4

Four M4x8 screws hold together the two parts of the LCD frame, the same can be used to attach the frame to any flat surface.

The LCD assembly is easy to do but involves making frame of dual adhesive tape around the LCD to keep the glass off contact with the metal and to attach the touchscreen if necessary.

We offer this assembly as separate service if one do not want to make it himself. Here is the link for the assembly service – it’s orderable item in the web shop.

Please note that before you add LCD10-ASSEMBLY-SERVICE to your order you also have ordered these items: A10 or A20 OLinuXino LIME or LIME2, LCD-OLinuXino-10 or LCD-OLinuXino-10TS, LCD10-METAL-FRAME and CABLE-40-40-10CM otherwise we can’t do the assembly!

A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC with Industrial temperature grade eMMC SLC Flash is now available on our web shop too.

Metal Frame Box for OLinuXino LIME with 7″ LCD is now in stock

LCD7-METAL-FRAME

The LCD 7″ Metal Frame Box is now in stock. We offer it only in black color.

Inside the frame there is space to assembly A10 or A20 OLinuXino LIME or LIME2:

LCD7-METAL-FRAME-2

All connectors of LIME are exposed on two sides on the frame box:

LCD7-METAL-FRAME-3

and from other side:

LCD7-METAL-FRAME-4

Four M4x8 screws hold together the two parts of the LCD frame, the same can be used to attach the frame to any flat surface.

The LCD assembly is easy to do but involves making frame of dual adhesive tape around the LCD to keep the glass off contact with the metal and to attach the touchscreen if necessary.

We offer this assembly as separate service if one do not want to make it himself. Here is the link for the assembly service – it’s orderable item in the web shop.

Please note that before you add LCD7-ASSEMBLY to your order you also have ordered these items: A10 or A20 OLinuXino LIME or LIME2, LCD-OLinuXino-7 or LCD-OLinuXino-7TS, LCD7-METAL-FRAME and CABLE-40-40-10CM otherwise we can’t do the assembly:)

The next logical step is to make Industrial panel. For this purpose we need LIME or LIME2 in industrial temperature grade.

A10/A20 qualify for industrial temperature grade, we also have all other components in this temperature range including the DDR3 memory, but two components preventing us to complete this job: NAND Flash and Ethernet PHY.

We work to solve this and in couple of months we may have in our web shop complete industrial panel solution with LCD, LIME etc in Industrial temperature grade -45+85C .

Friday Free Board Quiz – the prize is BOX-LIME-BLACK – Show us your desktop challenge!

BOX-LIME-BLACK-1

BOX-LIME-BLACK is awesome metal box for LIME.

You can win this metal box! To participate in the Quiz is enough to re-tweet the Twitter Quiz announcement message.

To double your chances  we challenge you to post on twitter picture of your desktop.

People say that what’s on your desktop that is in your head.

To set example – here is my desktop, as you can see in my head is completely chaos:

desk

I do wonder what is in the people head if their desktop is empty and clean:)

You have time to re-tweet and to show us your desk until Monday 18th of April.

In Monday we will ask random.org to generate random number in range then announce the winner and ship the board by post/airmail.

Good Luck!

 

TuxCon is only 86 days away :) with lot of interesting talks and workshops FPGA, Retro Computing, Robotics

tuxcon

TuxCon 2016 the conference for Open Source Software and Hardware technologies in Plovdiv is approaching.

In Saturday the organizers prepare dense program with 8 lectures, Lighting talks and ending with Free (not as in speech) Beer Party thanks to the event sponsors!

Edmund Humenberger (http://icoboard.org/) is one of our confirmed speakers, he is Open Source evangelist worked as a Open Source Expert for the European Commission and do currently work on bringing an open source FPGA toolchain to the world.

Orlin Shopov is one of the software developers of Puldin computers manufactured back in 1988-1992 in Plovdiv. He accepted our invitation to come and speak and have idea to invite and bring all other people who were involved in the design and production of this unique 100% made in Bulgaria (no clone of Apple or Oric like Pravetz) retro computer. This will be celebration for all Retro Computer fans who come.

Many other talks are submitted and we wait more to come by May 15th when is the dead line.

In Sunday at Olimex building we will have two workshops:

First is for  FPGAs, with introduction which talks about how FPGAs are made, where they are used, the history around them, the different ways of programming, HD languages, with practical work – using iCE40 FPGA and Open Source tools you will be able to understand the design process flow and to write your first program in Verilog and run it on the board.

We will give away 10 boards to random people who attend this workshop, so you can challenge your luck!

The second workshop will be with Robotics topic and we will keep it surprise by now, but will include competition and will also have prizes.

Hackaday slides are uploaded on Slideshare

Hackaday Belgrade – First Hackaday event outside US

postertake1

Last weekend was Hackay Belgrade event and I just came from there.

More than 300 people were there, interesting program and workshops, great food and nice people.

The conference was with live streaming and I guess the videos will be uploaded somewhere soon for these who missed it.

For these like me who was wondering why Hackaday team decided to make first conference outside US in Belgrade I will tell you the secret – The Supply Frame CEO’s (same company which bought Hackaday few years ago) Alexander Bradic is from Belgrade:) and Hackaday have office there!

Fortunately this conference was just 1 day, as with so many pleskavica, cebaps, vesalica and other meat deligths you can easily gain significant weight!

You can see what I’m talking about from this picture:

HACK

For these who missed the event – do not worry, Hackaday plans massive events all around the world, so they will be soon at your doorstop!
