Odroid-C0 and Odroid-VU5: compatibility?

Unread postby crazyquark » Thu Aug 24, 2017 6:28 pm

Hi all,
I saw a project on the forums that uses an Odroid-C0 and an LCD display to build a portable console.
It's something I've been dreaming about a long time and made some attempts with Raspberry Pis but I am not happy with the results.

The user who posted that "teaser" did not give any more details so I am wondering, would the Odroid-VU5 work with the Odroid-C0?
I assume yes but what about wiring it up in a most space efficient way and powering it from the board?
I assume one would need to use cables and not the small adapters for HDMI and micro-usb. Would a LiPo be able to handle the Odroid-C0 and Odroid-VU5?

We will test it with our 3000mAh LiPo battery and let you know the result early next week.

Hi.
Sorry for late response.
We're checking it with C0, VU5 and the battery
and need a couple of days.
Please wait a bit more. :)

Hi.
We've checked some basic tests with ODROID-C0 and VU5.
Please refer to the following.

1. Test Environment
- ODROID-C0
- 16GB eMMC with Ubuntu version
- ODROID-VU5
http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 7563061546
- 3000mAh Battery that is full charged
http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 5353298878
- WIFI Module 0
http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 5431421052

2. Test (1) - Booting Test
For the normal booting-up test, any another power supply wasn't connected but only 3000mAh battery was used.
The voltage level of the battery at the start time is 4.170V.

With the aforementioned test environment,
there is no issue for the normal booting, display, touch, wifi operation or something.

3. Test (2) - Aging Test using Youtube playback
We've checked the operation sustainability
and checked how long C0 keeps a continuous playback using Youtube on Chrome browser.

C2 kept the playback during 2 hours and 15 minutes from the power-up to auto power down.
During this test, there is no issue.

If you need more information or want further test, please let us know. :)


[P.S]
Just for your information...
We found an issue of VU5 with ODROID-C0 on a very specific case
only when VU5 HW is customized to support backlight control functionality.
In this case, the peak current during booting-up increases a little so, the backlight controller in VU5 works abnormal.

We found one VU5 board that shows this pattern and still checking if there is any hw tolerance,
and there is no problem with a normal case when you use VU5 and C0 combination without any hw modification. ;)

Thank you for this information!
I will probably get an odroid-vu5 and an odroid-c0 and start tinkering :)

One more question, how do you connect the power coming form the Odroid-C0 to the microusb port on the Odroid-VU5?

Any normal micro-USB cable should work if there is a USB host port on C0.
