Yes, that is it in a nutshell.
The Foundation needs to add new moderators to this community.
Or give control back to Chris so he can add more moderators.

Re: GPGPU on the R-PI.

What would it cost for Broadcom to open source all this stuff they have locked down.
Could we get a Kickstarter to fund the opening of this documentation?
It would be nice to make the Pi a truly open source open hardware project,
so the hacker community can push the bare metal.

That other small chip, that does the USB/Network, it gets hot and could do with a HS too. No fan though.

512MB of ram would be a nice dream as well as heaps of JTAG support, to halt the Pi and do memory dumps or memory changes, to look at the stack and the other processor registers.

Re: Raspberry PCI

To do that, would mean a wicked GPIO card. Almost like adding a PCIx port to the GPIO pins, so SATA cards can be added. What could be more realistic is adding a 2nd Network port to the Raspberry Pi via the GPIO pins. The Arduino has a few Network shields that could be bent to fit. Two network ports ...

Re: S5 Pin Layout for ARM JTAG?

Would it be easier to patch into the HDMI cable to access that pin? Or Solder onto the tab in rPi HDMI socket, much larger solder area than there and if it was done at the back would not worry cable. Still at the price, I may just get a 2.0 when they can be ordered with certification that they are 2...

A polyfuse, so that's what that miniSMD thing is. I guess I could add a polyfuse, if I can work out is where to get a 1.1A 6v Polyfuse that isn't surface mounted. Thanks Peter, TP1 TP2 will be the cleanest place to add power. I have built some 5V power sources for my arduino. I had not thought about...

Alternative power input.

I have been wanting to add power pins to my Pi and the two easiest I think are to tap into the TP1 (+5v) and TP2 (GND) or attach the new pins to the CAP C6, which I like as there is heaps of area there for working with a soldering iron. Soldering onto the Micro-USB power gnd pins is a bit hard. http...

@hellonearthis Are you sure about the SoC ? Because i don't think Broadcom had their VideoCore built into Samsungs chips (deducted from fast googling). ghans It is a hopeful guess from look at the CPU speed, type and memory size. Both have SoC CPU: ARM11 S3C6410 at 667 MHz/800Mhz GPU: SoC graphics ...

Re: Request to all forum members

Might be easier to write to Google and ask them for a port of Android?

There was a tablet computer in 2009 called the SmartQ5a that ran Android and uses the same CPU GPU as the Raspberry Pi. Maybe that would not be too hard to port.

Re: Following a R-Pi GPIO Tutorial

Those connectors are male male (they have the pokey out bits), if you grab a bag of female female (the have the holes) You could make a female male cable.

If you where to do a lot of breadboard work then get something like an Adafruit Cobbler.

Re: Debugging on a Pi

For those wondering what GDB and DDD are, there are some links.

LordSputnik has the best approach to debugging, just dump the variables to display.

The Raspberry Pi has some JTAG support on the GPIO pins, if you need to step through what the CPU is doing for super serious debugging.
