Premoboard: 2WIFI, 2LAN and 4USB to expand your cubie!
« on: October 29, 2014, 05:15:55 am »
Hello,



PREMOBOARD (PB) is a compact expansion board (6x10cm) that allows:
- 2 wireless ports (both configurable as Access Point)
- 2 LAN ports (10/100)
- 4 USB ports (2.0)

PremoBoard is designed to work as an expansion of cubieboard A10/A20, (anyway it can be controlled by any system via USB port)

I see the December availability.  Can you give us any idea on cost?  Have you tested the new sunxi uboot with it?  (That is what Fedora 21 beta is using).

I would really like having the 2 LANs, though all the WiFi (what addendum?  11n?  11ac?, I just came from the IEEE 802 meeting :) ) is extra.  Actually I would want an FXS port as well.

But thank you and looking forward to working with this on both a Cubie2 and truck.

hello,
We hope to start indiegogo in a couple of weeks, this means that very probably we cannot start production in dicember 2014, but at beginning of 2015 :-(

We tested CUBIAN X-1 (the version without GUI) and it works well, all devices pops ups immediately (but it is necessary install the non-free firmware with 'apt-get install firmware-ralink').

CUBIAN works well on uSD but in our pre-production pieces we added a SATA HDD 2.5'' and moved the OS on disk using the script.

Chipset wireless is TR5370, 54Mb/s. Last test report 2.6MB/s using ftp on wireless, it is "G". External antennas are included in the price.

The price: 79Euro (no wireless), 89Euro (one wireless) or 99Euro (two wireless).

To make it easy, on Indiegogo we will offer only 2-wireless version, but if you are fast to order, you can pay it only 33 or 66 Euro.

In general, you can ask to have version with no or with one wireless in function of your need.

Ah, yes: PremoBoard is designed to plug on cubieboard face-to-face or back-to-back, it means that one cubieboard can carry 2 premobaord at the same time (one face, one back) for a total of 5LAN, 4WIFI, 9USB: we don't know who can need all these ports, but it is possible to have.

Last, i don't understand the sentence "Actually I would want an FXS port as well" because i don't know what do you mean with "FXS".

Which 802 meeting was that?  I missed the Berlin meeting, but will be in Vancouver.

I would also like an FXS.  There is one now for the Raspberry Pi.

'2b'??  there is no such addendum to 802.11.  I have worked on 802 standards for ~14 years.

Perhaps just a typo.

But I really would like an FXS.  Take a look at:

What is the pinning"  Could you connect it to a Cubie?
