Meet Lime – the newest member of OLinuXino family. (Credits for the name go to Mr. Palavrov who gave us this idea at FOSDEM 2013).
A10 was missing from our OLinuXino range, but we are going to correct this soon.
We prepare our new pocket Linux computer with A10 Cortex-A8 which for a first time will come with elegant plastic enclosure for it’s 83×60 mm PCB.
Here is sneak preview of the board layout:
and here is how the plastic enclosure will look like:
These are the LIME features:
- A10, Cortex-A8, 1Ghz, NEON, VPU, GPU
- DDR3 512MB
- microSD card
- optional 4GB NAND Flash
- SATA + power supply
- HDMI 1080p
- Ethernet 100Mbit
- 2x USB hosts
- Lipo battery managment and connector
- 200 GPIOs on 0.05″ connectors
- PWR jack +5V only
We will prototype this board in October and if everything is OK the production will follow in December.
The software will be standard as other OLinuXino boards: Android 4.2.2 and Debian Linux with support of all board hardware features.
A10 support is most mature for Allwinner chips, beside Debian almost all popular Linux distributions run on A10: Arch, Fedora, Ubuntu, Slack, Mint..
The price? it will be nice surprise! Our target is to get as close as we can to one other popular fruit computer 😉 but to offer additionally SATA and LiPo as UPS backup (USB will keep working when on LiPo battery power supply)
LIME will be perfect for home automation, small home media server, NAS etc.
