LEARN PCB DESIGN by practicing on iMX6 Rex design files. You will learn everything important about routing PCB Layout for high speed interfaces such DDR3, PCIE, SATA, Ethernet, HDMI, LVDS, etc. Read more >
I hope you will like it :) Simply just start writing your code on OpenRex, hit "Verify", then "Upload" and that's it :) The on board NXP microcontroller will be running the new code. Soon I will release more info, I just couldn't keep it for myself :D
BTW: We may be looking for an intern this summer. I just would like to ask if someone would be interested? The location will be somewhere around San Jose area. You would need to be already living there. If you would be interested, please send me an email. Thank you.
A lot of people have been interested about iMX6 TinyRex and it’s HDMI input. I am very happy to announce, that iMX6 TinyRex Baseboard Lite files have been released to public today. After registration you can download the complete Altium & Manufacturing files from here. Enjoy!
Martin also created a new 3D PDF (use Adobe Reader to check it):
I have spent couple of days to prepare step-by-step instructions and video tutorial with detailed description about how you can run a Linux command through WEB interface on OpenRex. The example is based on WordPress Plugin, as it provides great flexibility. This means, if someone writes a plugin for OpenRex, it's very simple to install and run it on any OpenRex board :)
In this example, I am reading I2C temperature sensor placed on OpenRex board, but the same technique can be used on any board running Linux and the way described on this page can be used to run any Linux command. I hope you will find it useful :)
If you are interested to see all the Rex boards up and running (iMX6 Rex, TinyRex, OpenRex), we will be at Embedded World exhibition in Nuremberg. Look for FEDEVEL Academy Stand (4A-461). You are welcome to come
I really hope, you will enjoy this new fully Open Source Hardware Project. We got the boards yesterday. OpenRex booted up to Linux GUI. We are going to test the peripherals and we will be adding new information on our website in coming weeks. When everything looks good, we will also place online the full Altium Project. Have fun!
OpenRex is in assembly house and we are expecting prototypes within two weeks. Fingers crossed.
I attached an idea of OpenRex supporting add-on boards. The TOP OpenRex add-on board is also Raspberry Pi compatible. It may be used on the OpenRex SOLO version (with no or low profile heatsink). The BOTTOM add-on boards are larger. The plan is to support multiple add-on boards stacked on top of each other. It will require a lot of testing and playing
