more micro-desktop interfaces confirmed working: ethernet and vga

http://rhombus-tech.net/community_ideas/micro_desktop/news/

big surprise was the VGA working straight away once the connector
was rotated 180 degrees (with flying leads).

EOMA68-IC1t successful board bring-up

http://rhombus-tech.net/icubecorp/IC1T/news/

congratulations to the team at http://ICubeCorp.com for a successful
board bring-up, especially given the challenge that it had to be done
over the Micro-SD slot of the MicroDesktop base unit rather than over
USB-OTG.  despite this they successfully got console access over UART
and have since sent the boards on to me for further testing.

i am really excited to be involved with a completely new processor,
and to be able to bring working prototypes to people.

l.

Iteadstudio doing A20 SOM board

Totally lovely  :)

Personally I think if they want to make their mark,
they should reduce the price to $39.99.


(I'm still stuck for time doing my KiCAD version
 of one, and even if I get time,
 the newer versions would probably drop the edge connector
 and aim for a couple of FPC connectors.)

EOMA68-A33

has been finished and is ready for assembly to first prototypes but
due to the contract not being renewed here where i work it cannot be
paid for.  if there is anyone who would like to help get it into the
upcoming crowdfunding campaign the cost is $USD 3,600.

Indie?

https://ind.ie

they have been on my hit list for sometime. I think/recommend they would
make a very good partner. they have really good band & marketing. they
handle user experience (software) and are building a strong brand.

they have shown a strong commitment to free software ideas (gplv3) but I
am concerned that the first phone might be status quo hardware (non-free
drivers and firmware) but we/I shall see. There first software release
is only on osx first, gnu/linux and m$ later. I guess thats the system
they are currently more familiar with and future releases will be umm
more preferable :D

Phone Blocks?

https://phoneblocks.com

hmm, your thoughts?

mine? well I am concerned that it will be status quo software wise and
so not libre. but if they do software freedom then I'm not sure what it
would mean for eoma-*. I suppose at least eoma-* has the advantage of
getting to market sooner from the looks of things at phoneblocks -
doesn’t look like they have anything any time soon and we do need a
decent answer now with climate change/heating needing huge action now
and all that.

Come to think of it I guess eoma-68 will still have it's low cost market?

microdesktop pcb revisions

http://rhombus-tech.net/community_ideas/micro_desktop/news/

minor rework for production purposes, the 5 prototypes however should
be good enough for testing and demo purposes for the crowdfunding
campaign which will start early november.

Microdesktop PCBs back from assembly

http://rhombus-tech.net/community_ideas/micro_desktop/news/

ok so now we have:

* EOMA68-A20 CPU Card
* EOMA68-IC1t CPU Card
* Micro-Desktop base unit

testing begins when the micro-desktop base arrives, and the
crowd-funding campaign will begin early next month if all
functionality passes 100%.  the EOMA68-A20 CPU card is not expected to
require any rework (it's about the 4th revision as it is): the
micro-desktop however is 1st revision and will need at least one minor
correction (VGA connector).
