Openmoko Beagle/Panda Hybrid


 This project provides a PCB extension board and software to combine a Beagle Board (or Beagle Board XM or PandaBoard) with a Neo Freerunner compatible display and case. The goal is to provide a demonstrator and experimentation platform how a future modern state-of the art Openmoko device with ARM-Cortex A8/A9 and UMTS could be (neglecting miniaturization). This allows to develop software and new user interfaces. When packing the board into a Freerunner case, one can provide sound (microphone, earset, speaker) and vibracall.

Please note that there is a little DIY involved. You have to solder headers and sockets onto a Beagle Board (or Beagle Board XM or Pandaboard) and the Openmoko Beagle/Panda Hybrid board. Additionally, you have to cut some tape and glue the display module and finally insert the FFC cable into a ZIF socket. So we recommend that you have some experience with building electronics, but you don't need to have very special equipment.

NOTE: we have not yet verified if the board can be connected to the PandaBoard. But if you want to help to find out, please help us.

Bare PCB:

grey currently not in stock.
Populated PCB (incl. connectors):
red sorry, no longer available. EAN: 4260183480075
LCD Module: green 69.00 € (incl. 19.0% VAT)
Beagle Board C4: grey currently not in stock.
Project Donation: green 10.00 € (incl. 19.0% VAT)
Notes:
  • Plastic parts of Freerunner are not included, since they are not required for basic operation.
  • Beagle Board is not included with the Openmoko Beagle Hybrid

What it is good for

  • experimenting with touchscreen and new user interfaces on Beagleboard
  • learn how the OMAP3530/OMAP4430 CPU works
  • make it a mobile application development platform by adding a battery pack and a UMTS usb stick
  • investigate how an Openmoko with UMTS and OMAP3530/4430 feels (not from haptics but screen operation and UMTS speed)
  • porting SHR, QtMoko, Android, etc. to ARM-Cortex A8/A9 and testing user interaction

Features

  • PCB that fits into Freerunner case (top cover and middle part after cutting a hole)
  • works also outside of a case
  • Toppoly LCM interface (same display as used in the Freerunner - otherwise it would not fit into the case)
  • TSC2007 touch screen controller
  • Microphone
  • Earset and Speaker connector (for Freerunner case)
  • 2 buttons (AUX and Power)
  • 2 dual color LEDs (in the AUX and Power buttons)
  • vibracall driver
  • Micro-SD slot
  • headset jack to connect microphone, earset and speaker
  • GPS with internal/external antenna switch
  • optional: ITG-3200 Gyroscope, BMP085 Barometer
