Here is same box on bottom:
A20-OLinuXino-LIME/LIME2 boxes are also in production and will be in stock next week. Here is the preliminary prototype:
These boxes are small 100 x 65 x 25 mm, there is no provision for SATA drive inside, if one wants to make server has to put the drive and UPS battery outside. As you can see A20-LIME has just single hex spacer as the design is so dense that no space to put more mounting holes on the board.
Next week we will have another news: Beautiful metal frame for 7″ LCD with A20-OLinuXino-LIME inside build-in, which can be attached to any industrial panel/machine with 4 mount screws.
We are also re-layout LIME2 with Micrel PHY which Microchip sell in industrial temperature version. This is something which was holding us off to release complete -45+85C industrial grade LIME2 till now. In two weeks we will test our first Industrial grade LIME2 with SLC eMMC 4GB, Industrial DDR3 memory, Industrial PHY. If everything works flawless we will have soon Industrial grade Linux SBC with LCD in solid metal frame.
