YAHOO! This week, OpenRex passed the preliminary EMC testing
Everything is ready for production of the board in Commercial temperature range. The industrial version is also almost ready.
Our plan is to start in smaller quantities, this means, first boards will be expensive. They will be expensive not because we want to make profit from them, they will be expensive, because it’s really expensive to build them. The first batch only will be 20pcs 50pcs and the price will be 349USD 229 EUR per unit. Please, because of very high interest we only can ship 1 board per customer.
UPDATE! We have got enough pre-orders to cut the price to 229 EUR
Without these first boards it will be very hard to manufacture more OpenRex boards and lower the price. By buying these first boards you are also supporting future development of OpenRex project. Thank you!

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!
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 would like to learn how to do it, have a look at: How to create a simple WordPress plugin to Access and Control Hardware >
Or you can watch this tutorial:
In case you would like to use OpenRex as a webserver, this can be handful for you. I have created a page with instructions how to setup Apache + PHP + MySQL on OpenRex. Have a look at: How to install WordPress on OpenRex (Apache + PHP + MySQL + WordPress)
Once you have it installed, you can run a CMS (Content Management System) e.g. WordPress, Joomla, …. As an example, I setup RexFace wordpress website:
We have done a lot of work in the past few weeks:
- Software: We ported uBoot 2015, Kernel 3.14 and YOCTO Jethro to OpenRex. All the most important peripherals are already supported. The current source codes can be found at our FEDEVEL Github >
- Documentation: We have created a lot of pages about how to work with OpenRex (and we still continue writing new pages), see the Content >
- Testing: Martin is preparing OpenRex for Environmental Chamber and EMC testing
- Manufacturing: Our plan is have some boards available for you guys in Q2 2016
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
