eintopfgood morning06:26
eintopfeveryone is hacking - fine06:26
rjeffries_so it seems like, (not quite sure how...) a bot somehow sends me an alert if I am mentioned by name on this channel?09:47
rjeffries_my previous statement was posted in wrong (this) irc channel sorry.10:14
rjeffries_this is a decent design as attractive price (when it ships) https://www.cnx-software.com/2015/04/21/udoo-neo-combines-arduino-raspberry-pi-wi-fi-bluetooth-and-sensors-into-a-single-49-board-crowdfunding/10:28
whitequark(if)10:37
rohnasty connectors10:57
rohand i do not believe the price with a imx6 (all other boards are more expensive.. those cores cost some euros)10:58
wpwrakmaybe Mark Tuson does the sourcing for them. then the price is no problem ;-)10:59
rjeffries_one thing is absolute total 100 percent guarantee in #qi-hardware <smile>11:27
rjeffries_no matter what, commercial small, cheap, relatively open computers of any flavor are assumed dead on arrival11:32
whitequarkpick two11:33
wpwrakthat too :) but it's unfortunately rather common for projects to underestimate what things cost12:03
whitequarkalso the thing where prototyping and mass production take completely disjoint skill sets12:04
whitequarkthe former is fairly well covered by makerspaces and such12:04
whitequarkthe latter is thoroughly lacking12:04
valhalladidn't the udoo already release a board?12:30
valhallaI expect that the second one is more likely to be successfull, if the first one was12:30
valhallahttp://www.udoo.org/ ----> it seems that they did12:33
DocScrutinizer05http://maemo.cloud-7.de/share-service/20150420_002.jpg *ANY* hints how to find out about the properties of those chips and particularly what "TN0" means are extremely appreciated13:09
DocScrutinizer05also pointers to companies who would to chip electrical QA testing on order, for a few hundred or maybe 1000 chips, highly appreciated13:10
DocScrutinizer05thanks in advance13:11

DocScrutinizer05http://maemo.cloud-7.de/share-service/20150421_008.jpg13:14
DocScrutinizer05I's *supposed* to be (and sort of verified to be) a 8Gb-LPDDR/4Gb-OneNAND PoP chip for OMAP313:16
DocScrutinizer05so the question is "what means -A506" and particularly "what means TN0" (sometimes quoted as "TNO")13:17
DocScrutinizer05and generally "would it be possible to ask $somebody about more details about this particular chip/serialnumber"13:18
whitequarkask the people who sell it?13:19
DocScrutinizer05did13:28
DocScrutinizer05no dice13:28
DocScrutinizer05brokers, have no idea really about what they actually are pushing through13:29
DocScrutinizer05we asked for meaning of "TNO" and about "datasheets, pleeeease". No luck13:30
DocScrutinizer05the answer is basically "we have a chip with this label and this footprint for you. Take it or leave it"13:31
DocScrutinizer05I wonder if Samsung (and who there, they're a huge set of unlinked companies) would know and be willing to tell us some more about that particular chip/waver13:37
whitequarktry asking on reddit.com/r/askengineers13:41
whitequarkpeople from many big companies lurk there and samsung is enormous13:42
DocScrutinizer05thanks! :-)13:46
whitequark/r/ECE also worth a try (those intersect but not much)13:47
whitequarkthe others are too novice oriented13:50
DocScrutinizer05if only it wasn't reddit ;-)14:11
DocScrutinizer05dos1: did you have an account there?14:12
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: you don't even need to provide *email* to register14:36
whitequarkwhat is the issue14:36
DocScrutinizer05whitequark: oh wow, didn't realize15:25
whitequarkreddit hasn't sent me a single email ever15:38
whitequarkactually annoying because I want it to notify me of replies15:38
