November 7 2012- Pre-production run Wandboard Debug

This week we have been busy with software and hardware validation. For those not aware of how hardware development works, software plays an important role as the final verification of a new board.

Some hardware issues are spotted first when the oscilloscope was used to validate the signals. After some adjustments and putting the correct resistor values, the real fun started when a driver loads, and *almost* works.

The Wandboard currently has a Linux 3.0 kernel up and running.<

October 24 2012- Wandboard pictures

Today we received validation samples of the Wandboards back from the SMD line.

Plugged in the System on Module in the baseboard and the final round of debug can start.

Here some pictures of the boards.

UPDATE : Higher resolution pictures in the PICTURE-ZIP HERE.

October 4 2012 - Wandboard first media exposure

Waking up this morning and checking what happened. Guess what. Wandboard links everywhere on google and the team goes crazy enthousiastic. 20,000 hits on the Wandboard page overnight and many "reservations". Thank you all. You warm our hearts.

As a reward we will put in many hours in the next few weeks, we cancel our walks in the park and will be posting video's later on this month.

We asked our subcontracter to make X-rays of the Wandboards for you all.

Stay tuned. They will come very soon.

September 27 2012 - Wandboard sees the light

We start to spread the word that the Wandboard is coming fairly soon. We have revision 0.2 boards in manufacturing now that should resolve all known issues. We received final silicon for the i.MX6 and now cross our fingers.
