ARMBRIX-5250-A Questions

Postby MiGen » Mon Jan 14, 2013 10:49 pm

I really like the price on this board. I'm Currently using Odroid-x2 board and this is basically the same price and i'm thinking of using this board instead for my projects but have a couple important questions.

1) Does this support eMMC? or does it only boot from Micro SD?

2) to get BT and Wifi would you need to use a Dongle or will there be a board later for that?

I've just came back from CES2013 and little bit late responded your question.

1) ARMBRIX Zero has socket for eMMC module backside of board, but sale for eMMC module is not decided yet.
At this moment, only Micro SD boot will be supported. However internally we have some small project for supporting various storage booting like eMMC, SSD, and HDD.
After testing these, testing results will be shared.

2) For BT and WiFi, that one is under planning as module. ARMBRIX Zero's extensions can support BT and WiFi interfaces, but sometimes dongle is easy to get in open market for wireless.
If we will prepare BT/WiFi, MTK's solution will be prepared. (MT6620 or next new version as a module type based on small PCB)

Hi,
(SorryMODs/Admin for double posts..but I am in a hurry to know..so :D )
Before ordering an ARMBRIX I have a few queries:

- Can I still pre order 1..? In the 1st batch to be manufactured?
- what all is included in the package? Like cables? Power adapter etc.?
- are there any extra charges for the cables ^ etc.?
- is it possible to ship it via EMS instead of FEDEX?
- Can the shipping department mention low $$ on invoice? :D
(you know what I mean?)

Thanks & Regards,

In case of pre-order, it will be closed within today. We will fix some bugs from the first sample and release revised PCB for 1st batch.
ARMBRIX Zero has no cables in the package because it does not require any special cables for that.
Delivery and Invoice issue can be asked to Howchip.com.

Thanks,
