BurgasConf is this Saturday 30th of June (of course in Burgas) looking forward to see you there

BourgasConf

BurgasConf is part of IT Tour – traveling IT events organized with the help of the local Burgas hacker space BurgasLab.

This Saturday it will start at 10.00 in Flora Expo Center.

Usually IT tour is focused more on Software than on Hardware, but this time we will try to change it a bit with Hardware related talk about the Flash memories.

These who come to the talk will learn about who invented the Flash memories, who are the major players and what are the trends. How the different Flash memories work, what we should know about how they wear and what precautions to take to minimize this, also are there security risks involved with their use.

We will not go in deep technical details, but enough to people learn what Flash memory is best for their application.

So looking forward to see you there!

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.
