Goodby ODROID

Post by Asterion »

While waiting for an ODROID-W replacement (the C0 not so much) I did get me 4 C.H.I.P. to set up wireless speakers around the house. They are tini!

Being 1 GHz I can also run a RabbitMQ server cluster in the background on them to provide fault tolerant communication for my house automations.

Come on ODROID, catch up!!

Why, different boards for different needs.

I'm saying there is a place in the world for the CHIP, the RPi, orange pi....etc

No one board manufacturer will have products to suit everyone's needs, I wish hardkernel had a CHIP or RPi Zero competitor but it's okay they don't since there are other affordable options in this space.

I have some hopefully good news for us Ordoid-W lovers. Since it seems Ordoid has dried up, with no new products for a while now it looks like the writing is on the wall.
Anyways, i digress. I have high hopes that this device will be a good replacement for it. I know it does not have headers but it packs everything in & even eMMC which far to many dont do, which kills them for outdoor applications.

Does that have to use a carrier board?

yes, and it seems the dev carrier board is bigger than the xu4 :)

Its a dev kit, its purpose is not to be as small as possible. It's to allow you to evaluate the module. Of course for those who cannot design a PCB, it probably not for you.

I like it but have no experience with PCB design, I don't know of any amateur that could design one as complex as this.

I would bet after it comes out someone if not myself will make a DIP style adapter board for it so those who have not learned PCB design can use it.
I don't want to get to far ahead of myself though. This is not the first time I though a module would be great. I really though the Edison was going to be. It was a great peice of hardware, but the docs and support for it was horrid, and that is what killed it. I just hope the same wont happen here.

you have tried to compare it with C0.
C0 is not a SoM, you can use it without designing a PCB.
