Re: Operating Temperature

You can buy tiny 20-40mm fans on ebay. Finding tiny blower fans is much harder though. But here's one http://www.ebay.com/itm/281943494115 it's a 5v 30mm blower, you could connect it to your CN2 power connectors (the way mine is connected) and you can even put it inline with a small chipset heatsink...

Re: Questions before you buy

Like any windows computer, you'll want to go through the proper shutdown process to avoid corruption. Since it could be writing a file in the background when you flip the switch. So you'll want to shut down and when the red light goes low, you can flip the switch. Probably not what you want to hear ...

Re: Operating Temperature

I don't know, probably not.. if your filament is too low temp to eat soup from a bowl made of it, then maybe. It depends on your filament. PLA and other filaments work at a lower temp. If the cpu is making direct contact with the case, or even using a thermalpad/compound, it may soften or deform it....

Re: Operating Temperature

How about an unofficial operating temp? The bottomside (Where the cpu is), without added cooling. will get really freaking hot. If you left it on bare skin while gaming or doing something cpu intensive, it would cause burns. (not instant burns, but you might get a blister.) Trust me, invest in some ...

Re: Using a 5-inch display

You will likely need to use an HDMI display.
https://www.adafruit.com/product/2109 (Currently out of stock)
You may be able to find an HDMI Ribbon cable such as http://www.ebay.com/itm/252508906577
This isn't ideal i know. But Lattepanda doesn't have many natively supported mipi displays.

Re: Questions before you buy

1: One has windows pre-activated. The other you'll need to buy a license for. Or if you already have a windows 10 license, you can use that. All the lattepandas come with windows 10 pre-installed. Just the unactivated ones will need you to activate them with a key. 2: HDMI output works from the box....

Re: LP 2G/32GB - RTC Battery Connector embedded on the board

I don't know about buying one. I doubt they would make a special request. And i think the reason mentioned that they don't include them, is because of how fragile they are. Though IMO.. they should be on the top side, using a vertical connector, and stuck to the top heat-plate/cover. or simply use o...

Re: lowering CPU speed to achieve low power for IOT system.

Oh whoa, that LP1 guy that messaged me is actually a Lattepanda team person? Since he asked me to talk with him on like skype, facebook, facetime etc, i just thought it was someone "checking me out." XD
Don't worry, it's nothing bad! XD

Edit: Done, sent the email.

Re: lowering CPU speed to achieve low power for IOT system.

Windows may have some power options for lowering the maximum speeds. But you definitely asked a brain scratcher. I don't remember seeing an option in the bios to lower speeds. (else i'd use it to raise them.) As for turning off the gpu, that's even tougher. Though i do believe that is possible in th...

Re: Lattepanda with Arduino

It gets it's power from the panda's Micro-USB or CN2 power connectors. It's an arduino Leonardo (essentially... ATmega32u4) and connects to the atom with an internal USB connector. I "believe" the arduino can, and will run so long as the panda has power, even if it hasn't booted into windows. So jus...
