Friday Free Board Quiz prize is A20-OLinuXino-LIME, Question: How many copper layers you can have in PCB design with KiCAD?


a20-olinuxino-lime-1

A20-OLinuXino-LIME is Open Source Hardware low cost Linux single board computer with native Ethernet, LiPo battery charger, native SATA and HDMI.

What makes different this board from other similar is that ALL board peripherals keep running from single LiPo battery in case of power loss. i.e. if you have SATA drive connected and USB dongles plug they will keep operating until battery discharge.

Recently we made upgrade to A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 which have Gigabit Ethernet and 1GB RAM and added industrial temperature -40+85C eMMC Flash 4GB which can operate in both MLC and SLC modeto A20-OLinuXino-LIME2-eMMC . Now we are one step away to offer completely industrial grade LIME2 as we successfully tested KSZ9031 Gigabit Ethernet PHY interface from Microchip which performs up to 700MB up and down link and Microchip is offering it in industrial grade too, so it’s matter of time to have completely industrial version of LIME2 operating -40+85C.

 

You can win A20-OLinuXino-LIME!

To participate in the Quiz is enough to re-tweet the Twitter Quiz announcement message.

To double your chances  answer the quiz question.

You have time to re-tweet and/or answer until Monday 20th of June.

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

Good Luck!
