Longevity

Unread postby MrIntarnet » Fri Nov 11, 2016 2:20 am

Hi,

We are considering developing a device that could be built around the ODROID C2. The C2 has several advantages over similar devices, such as FCC and CE certification, as well as it's performance capabilities.

However, the fact that the C2 is a Development board, and as such is subject to change, presents us with a problem, since creating a product based on a device that may change at any time is obviously inviting disaster. Does Hardkernel have any Commercial agreements in place for long-term manufacturing?

We're loving the capabilities, but the Commercial side is giving us the heeby-jeebies. :)

Thanks
Rich

Does the C1+ not fit your needs? It will have no more revisions made and should be officially supported for another year I believe.

Thanks for the reply.

Can the same be said for the C2? I noted there were pricing structure for 1,000's of devices, plus you've completed CE and FCC Certifications, which would suggest a longer expected lifespan.

Our application involves displaying multiple 720p RTSP streams over the HDMI interface, with minimal latency. We know the C2 can accomplish this, and it does it very well, would the C1 have the same capability?

We will keep making/selling C1+ and C2 by early 2018 at least.

So consider evaluating the C1+ too for your application.
