Open Hardware?
« on: January 27, 2013, 10:59:43 pm »
I've seen on a couple different websites that this project is open-hardware.

Is this true? If so, where can I gain access to the gerber files? If not, will it ever be?


btw - this is a great dev board (far more useful than the raspberry pi IMO).


Thanks!

What there is, is on the CubieBoard.com site

http://cubieboard.org/download/  and http://dl.cubieboard.org/hardware/


I have mirrored what there is here - http://dl.cubieforums.com/pdf/CubieBoard/

Thanks for your reply!

Do you know if the board layout files will ever be available? Even pdfs of the various layers would be enough.

I'm primarily interested in how the signals are routed from the processor to the DDR3.

Any help is very much appreciate.

Thanks!

Check the pdf's I posted of other board layouts.

They all pretty much use the same AllWinner sample design layout really.
(Those are the Chinese ones)

Thanks again for the reply.

Essentially what I'm looking for is a file like:

http://dl.cubieforums.com/pdf/CubieBoard/cubieboard_outline_2012-08-08_v1.1.dxf

However, this appears to have all the PCB layers except the trace layers.
Any chance you could post a .dxf with all the PCB layers?

Thanks again!
