Does that mean we get a controlled PowerDOWN with current from Lion-Accus if 12V supply is shut down ?
We are still evaluating, hope-hope can pass. :P

This would be great !

at least one RS485 interface.
There is a RS232, can it works with you ? May I ask why would you need the RS485?
Any feedback will be appreciate. :P
We have a lot of modules with RS485-Slaves in our company. (Stepper motor controller, ADC, board with relays, board with SSR and 16A Triac, and many more.) We are combining them for new products. RS485-Master is a bigger microcontroller or a PC.
RS485 is a widely used interface in the sector of laboratory oem equipment... but unfortunately with many different software protocols. :(
As far as I know, some other network systems are also based on the RS485 hardware.

Hi, Lutz, Thanks for the feedback, and what a shame there is no RS485 . :(
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

I'm planning to use latte panda alpha for machine learning and image recognition using openCV. By using a camera, these learning includes facial detection, and analyzing and recognizing what's being captured by the camera like a person in red shirt, a cat, kids running, etc. So speed is important for me because the it can deliver faster analysis and result. Much better as well if latte panda has an onboard camera slot similar to raspberry pi camera module so that project that requires camera can easily use this slot without compensating a lot of space and power. I have already a working project of this kind in raspberry pi 3 and knowing latte panda is more powerful hardware, I'm so excited what it would bring.
Hi, Thanks for the feedback.
We are planning to add the camera slot , Still evaluating.
Did you plan to use the raspberry pi camera only? Any other choose? And how fast of the speed will you need?
Nice day! ;)
Hi
I wanted to add my 2 cents. The connector for RPi cameras is nice, but what is the advantage of these cameras over the USB ones? These can also provide high resolution by high framerate and you can attach as many as you want to have 3d vision or multi eye vision. So if there is room then great.
Similar, if we are talking about RAM making things complex can demolish this nice project. The 7y30 accepts max. 16GB and N4100 max. 8GB of RAM. And the amount makes sense if we are using two channels. If not then we have half the speed so performance bottleneck. Thus, instead of replacing the one m.2 by memory slot it would be imo much better to keep both m.2 ports and just offer two options with different memory chips to support 8 and 16 gigs by alpha and 4 and 8 gigs by delta. I do not know if alpha and delta share the same PCB, if not you have four PCBs in the worst case. But you want to adapt the current PCB anyway, right? Having the memory chips soldered limits the upgradeability a bit, but I am pretty sure that it will be cheaper than to use dimm modules.
Cheers
Krzysztof

We have less than 1 month of time.
Can we wait some new pledges? How long we need to wait?

^ Where you did get that bad boy? DFRobot?!

Joking aside, I need to put my hands on that screen "urgently" for prototyping purposes. If this is likely to become an official product, then we need to get this asap so we are not left behind for when its time to revise SM assemblies (jigs, molds, etc, you $ee!)

Any additional info/data, mech dim, anything you have would be more than helpful at this stage.

Let me know when I can grab one of those please... even if there are some scratches as deep as a canyon, I (we) don't care.

As what we can see, the new touch screen has already attached to the display and will has large borders for mounting. It will be more convenient for the user who need the touch function.
Let's waiting ! :)

I am planning to build a compact, yet usable offline kubernetes cluster geared for disaster relief efforts (though could be used for rural schools, favelas, research stations, cars, camping, etc).

This would be a first cluster with the following features:
  • Compact, x86 cluster which would have enough power for "real work"
  • Self-hosted Kubernetes cluster, built on CoreOS
  • Offline cluster, with its own pre-loaded Docker and Helm Repos
  • Extensible with plug-and-play PXE provisioning
  • Replicated storage for stateful workloads
  • Bare-metal ARP based load-balancing
Please let me know if anyone is interested in helping out!
