The Industrial grade -40+125C Open Source Hardware Linux board which is hardware compatible with A20-OLinuxino-LIME2 but with ST Microelectronics STM32MP1xx SOC STMP1-OLinuXino routing is complete

TOP1

BOT1

STMP1-OLinuXino routing is complete. It took 6 months from the idea to the finish.

Why it took so long? We had several times to re-design the schematics around the DDR memory and power supply.

Our goal was to make it pin to pin compatible with OLinuXino-LIME2 and we achieved it.

STMP1-OLinuXino has:

  • Same size as LIME2
  • Same GPIOs on same places
  • Ethernet, USB, battery Lipo, buttons, HDMI, SD-card on same places
  • same mount holes
  • 1GB DDR3 memory
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface
  • HDMI interface
  • LCD interface
  • 2x USB hosts and 1x USB-OTG
  • micro SD-card
  • GPIOs have similar interfaces on the same positions
  • LiPo battery charger and step up converter for battery operation
  • CAN interface

There are few differences:

  • we add Flash connector where different flash modules will be attached: NAND Flash, SPI Flash, eMMC Flash, so instead to keep many different versions of the board with different Flash options like LIME2 this will be done with exchangeable modules
  • we put the STM32MP1 SOC on bottom where adding heatsink do not interference with the top GPIO connectors and add-on boards

The STM32MP1 devices work at -20/40+125C operating temperature by default which makes them perfect for industrial applications.

There will be different versions with STM32MP151/153/157 as they share same BGA package, also there will be some versions with commercial temperature grade components for lower cost.  Our preliminary estimations are the prices to be between EUR 35 and 70 depend on the different configurations.

Gear motors and accessories for building robot cars are in stock

MG-12V-DE5

We got some new toys in stock for robot builders. The MG-12V-1:100-DE and MG12V-1:380-DE are gear motors for robot cars, working at 12V with 78 RPM and 300 RPM . Both have digital encoders which give two channel feedback for the rotation speed, used for identifying the speed and rotation direction. The MG-12V-1:100 and MG-12V-1:380 are lower cost alternatives to those motors but without encoders.

These motors can be attached to a flat surface with MG-FIX.

MG-FIX

The MG-WHEEL-43mm are rubber wheels with diameter 43mm and a width 19 mm which attach directly to MG-6V and MG-12V gear motors.

MG-WHEEL-43mmb

The MG-WHEEL-65mm is rubber wheel with diameter 65mm and width 25mm. It requires a special MG-COUPLER.

New NB-IoT-BC66 modules with size only 26×26 mm contain everything you need to add NB-IoT functionality in your next project

NB-IoT-BC66d

NB-IoT is low power wide area networking technology which uses existing GSM LTE technology and has many advantages versa LoRa:

  • GSM network quality of service
  • single GSM cell can talk to up to 100 000 devices
  • high communication speed 25.5 kbps up and downlink
  • secure communication using LTE encryption
  • better range than LoRa both in urban and rural area (* depend on cell operating frequency – best range is om 850Mhz)

NB-IoT is already deployed in many applications:

  • Remote metering of electricity, water and gas;
  • Environmental monitoring;
  • City waste management, parking management, Lighting management;
  • Storage monitoring, logistics;
  • Healthcare patient monitoring;
  • Agroculture monitoring and management, remote irrigationi;
  • Industrial machinery monitoring and control.

The only disadvantage is the need of SIM card from operator, but in Europe there are many options for low cost SIM cards, to not make advertisement we will not quote but prices start from EUR 1 per year.

We add 4 new modules in stock:

 

BAY-HDD/SDD is easy way to add external storage to LIME and LIME2, now Pioneer-FreedomBox-HSK can have 2000GB external storage in robust enclosure

LIME2-SERVER8

BAY-HDD-500GB, BAY-HDD-1000GB, BAY-HDD-2000GB and BAY-SSD-512GB are external disks with special bridge board to plug in A20-OLinuXino-LIME and A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 servers providing all necessary connections and power supply for external disk.

It’s plug and play recognizable by Pioneer-FreedomBox-HSK and adds significant amount of storage to the platform.

 

New useful parts for OLinuXino OSHW Linux computers, soldering tool and new components in stock

USB-RS485-wiring

USB-RS485 is USB to RS485 converter and can be used with any computer with USB including OLinuXino.

A20-OLinuXino-MICRO, A64-OLinuXino, A13-OLinuXino, A33-OLinuXino, iMX233-OLinuXino have Audio input, for these boards we got very compact and flexible PC-MIC-3.5MM

ESP32 new boards in stock

ESP32-PICO-KITb

Espressif never stop to surprise us with new products. Their new ESP32-PICO-D4 IC has build in 4MB SPI Flash and quartz crystal, antenna matching circuit, so this chip requires just 5 external resistors and capacitors to work! If your design has to be small this is the chip for you!

ESP32-PICO-KIT is low cost development board for this new chip and has build in USB serial programmer, antenna and breadboard friendly DIL header connectors at 0.1″ step.

ESP32-CAM-F

ESP32-CAM is WiFi IP camera with OV2640 2 Mpix sensor it works with internal PCB antenna and needs just 3.3V external power supply to  operate. You also have SD-card connector and GPIOs to which you can connect PIR sensors and other components to control.

There is Arduino support for this board and tons of interesting projects like face recognition, motion detectors with storage of the pictures on the SD card and etc.

Here are few of them:

We also got ESP32-CAM-UFL which is same board but with U.FL connector where you can connect external antennas.

ESP32-CAM-ANT1

ESP32-CAM-EA is ESP32-CAM with small external WiFi/BT antenna which increased the WiFi coverage.

ESP32-CAM-ANT2

If you need more coverage we have ESP32-CAM-EAX which has higher gain antenna, but with quite bigger size.

New Product in stock: Metal box for A64-OLinuXino

BOX-A64

BOX-A64-BLACK is metal box with PVC black coating for A64-OLinuXino

The box comes with all necessary fasteners for board assembly inside the box and four rubber feets.

Opening for external antenna is provided although current A64-OLinuXino revision has no WiFi module with U.FL connector inside. We work on next revision where this will be fixed and A64-OLinuXino board will be possible to order with internal or external antenna.
