Whitout the baseboard is it any use ?

Do you see usable connectors on [a href=\"http://www.garz-fricke.de/render.php?sess_pid=357]http://www.garz-fricke.de/render.php?sess_pid=357[/url] ?

You would need to find a way to connect all the ports to the connectors, which is what the baseboard does.

interesting, but apparently unreliable with poor performance:

Another homebrew machine, this time a gaming handheld based on an ARM11 (going to be based on a TI OMAP3430 it seems), 800x480 touch screen: http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?showtopic=38155

Good luck reading all 120 pages of that thread...


Stackable ARM11 dev platform aimed at hobbyists:
http://www.buglabs.net/products

These seem to be pics of platform:

They're seeding beta units right now, release is supposed to be Q4 this year.

hmm, I remember seeing the buglabs stuff a while ago, there's been a bit more skin on the bones since then! Looks promising.

I'm still hoping Da Blitz will at least come up with a nice clamshell case/keyboard into which we could shoehorn a basic motherboard & display.

i do have some stuff but its rough, and not yet anywhere near for release

as for the case, its always been a major problem with this project, i have a design that i am very very happy with but getting it built is another story

btw i joind the arm-linux lists and it appears that there are a couple of iMX.3 boards out theer i have never heard of, when i get a chance i will look into it
