Re: Compute Module Test Board

Did you keep the resistance of the USB connection in mind? [John Cleese voice] ahh yes, it would seem that i have indeed missed it... but i checked the traces and they are rated for about 1.6 amps across the trace, i also checked the resistance and the first usb socket has a voltage drop to roughly...

Re: What would you do with a Compute Module?

Hi. I've been following the pi for a while now and I have always thought on hooking up a e-ink display on that, with 2 fully powered usb ports, a battery, wifi (dunno if it is included already) and possibly a button to go straight into "sleep" mode. Is this possible with the CM? Have in mind that I...

Re: What would you do with a Compute Module?

I would love to see a Model C (is it a called a shield?) adapter that pairs a a high quality DAC with a wireless card. An optional upgraded would be an amplifier that could plug directly into it (again, are the model C bodies called shields?). I would use this audio tuned system to build networked ...

Re: Compute module on eken m001 ?

You cant just swap the processor in that tablet and not for a compute module.

Besides, the compute module isnt really much more powerful, certainly not a worthy upgrade.

Re: use Raspberry as a USB Keyboard

Linux would not meet the realtime timing constraints required for a software emulated USB over GPIO. At best you might be able to emulate a PS/2 device using an interrupt on the clock line for synchronisation. Besides the network device mentioned above, the pi is not a suitable solution to this prob...

Re: Can a third party produce their CM?

If someone would really want to he could trick other SoC on a COM to be similar in compatibility via some abstraction layer so that pins could match as much as possible (but that would be quite pointless and possibly very hard to make if at all). It would be much better to provide own COM module or...

The eMMC uses the pins previously used for the SD card. You could utilise an SPI attached SD card although a custom driver would be needed for the host OS or you could add a USB card reader as the only 2 options I can think of

Re: USB Fan

You can't switch the RPi USB port power on and off. The fan probably uses less than 500mA, so you could use a small transistor or FET controlled by one of the GPIO pins. Alternatively you could use a small transistor or FET to control a small relay, then use the relay to control the fan. You might ...

you can set VirtualBox to use a USB stick as its virtual harddisk.

I second the virtualbox suggestion. Its easy to setup and if you have hyperV (or whatever AMD call their equivelant) enabled it has a remarkably low performance impact, its an awesome setup.
