Info about Odroid-XU3

Post by shaunak_s »

Hi,

We are planning to use Odroid-XU in one of our products and had bought one for evaluation.
I recently visited the hard kernel website and saw that Odroid-XU is going to be discontinued in Q3 2014. I understand the replacement to Odroid-XU is Odroid-XU3. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

I had a few questions regarding the Odroid-XU3:
1. Does the Odroid-XU3 have a MIPI-DSI interface similar to the one used by Odroid-XU? We are using the 10” LCD screen from hard kernel on the Odroid-XU.
2. Does the Odroid-XU3 have a similar form factor (size, dimensions)?
3. Can Odroid-XU3 also boot from an SD card?
4. Will you have ready to use Android OS images for Odroid-XU3 as well?

Thanks very much.

Regards,
Shaunak

XU will be retired within a couple of months.

1. No, XU3 don't have the MIPI-DSI port. So we introduced the ODROID-VU.

2. Exactly identical footprint and connectors (except fo MIPI-DSI)

It would be helpful to link the VU as an accessory of the XU3 on the hardkernel web page.

Sorry guys I have come up with some more doubts.

1. When you say Odroid-XU will be retired, do you mean that you will not be accepting any more orders or just that you will no longer provide active support for Odroid-XU.
2. If so, do you guys get into agreements with companies where in they buy off design files of the board (which you no longer manufacture) and modify mass manufacture them for use?
3. On another note, do you have 10" and 7" HDMI based LCD screens with capacitive touch like the one used with the Odroid-VU? If so, we could consider using Odroid-XU3 instead.

Thanks very much.

1. Even ODROID-X retired 1.5 years ago, we are still support it actively. But our support for retired product will be less active because of limit resource.
2. No, we have not any plan to sell our board design files. It seems to be the only one we have as an closed Intellectual Property.
3. No, we have only 9" of ODROID-VU. I think we will not make any other differnt screen size for 1 year at least.

Sorry for negative answers. :(

i ask here a question related to XU3,so i will not open a new discussion.
I noticed a little change in the 2 dip-switches for boot selection.
SW1 change over microsd or emmc,and SW2 over CCI enable or disable.
Can you elaborate more about SW2?

CCI stands for Cache Coherent Interconnect.
Older generation XU,XU2 had a problem of HMP due to the CCI bug in the Chip.
So we added the option to enable/disable the CCI.

But HMP works well in XU3 and the CCI option is useless. :)
The CCI should be always enabled.

Nevermind.

So do you mean that we could still purchase Odroid-XU from you guys? Until when do you intend to continue the production/supply of Odroid-XU?
We will need at least 200-300 pieces a year.

Thanks very much.

As we informed a few months ago, XU will be obsoleted in Q2/Q3 when there is no more inventory.
I can't recall how many XU/XU+E we have now.
I think we have only 100~200pcs.. :(

Contact "odroid at hardkernel dot com" to check the availability. She will answer for you.
