Re: another UK "alternative" to the pi

<t><br/> hoping to get back on topic <br/> <br/> I've been looking into various "alternatives" to the RaspberryPi, which I'd much prefer to label as variations on a theme <br/> <br/> I managed to get my grubby mits on a PandaboardES and have been using that as a personal testbed for embedded systems...

Re: Network oriented version of raspberry pi?

<t>I dont think there is sufficient incentive to reduce the costs further by producing such a niche product.<br/> <br/> Feel free to solder off the components you don't need <br/> <br/> I have mini-plans for something similar but I'm expecting to need to custom build it myself, sourcing the componen...

Re: Cluster (Bramble...) Design Discussion (Advanced)

<t>when I get time I'll try to get a scores for an i5 2500 for you. (mini-itx board, with 8Gbs RAM) approximate cost £265 when I bought it.<br/> <br/> I think for the most part, the R-Pi provides a cost effective solution to have a real hardware cluster cheaply, power per/whatever will almost always...

Re: Cluster (Bramble...) Design Discussion (Advanced)

<t>unless I've very much mistaken the issue here is that you cant PUSH from one side.<br/> <br/> A request has to be made to the SD interface to illicit a response, so the bandwidth might be severely reduced when you add the requirement for additional message passing.<br/> <br/> (plus R-Pi's aren't ...

Re: Cluster (Bramble...) Design Discussion (Advanced)

<t>Extending the Idea of the bramble a little further I have a couple of questions.<br/> <br/> 1. Is it possible to network boot a R-pi?<br/> <br/> 2. If the above is feasible, how feasible would it be to produce a Bramble on a board?<br/> <br/> I've had the idea for a while of some sort of configur...
