All-in-one Engineering Board

The purpose of an All-In-One Engineering Board is to create a Reference Platform that can either be used as-is (by end-users with no access to PCB facilities) or cut-down to size by ODMs for a particular less-demanding purpose. Despite having similar features and purpose, the example Engineering Board is approximately the same size as a Pandaboard. However: unlike the Beagleboard and the Pandaboard, any EOMA/PCMCIA-compliant CPU card can be deployed.

Designs based around this all-in-one Example Engineering Board can therefore be made with the confidence that even if the CPU chosen at the beginning of a product's lifecycle turns out not to be sufficiently powerful, an alternative EOMA/PCMCIA-compliant CPU card can be chosen off-the-shelf without jeapordising the viability of the product.

Connectors and Components

The list of connectors and components is much larger than those of the Embedded_Open_Modular_Architecture/PCMCIA/MiniEngineeringBoard Mini Engineering Board, as this board is more of a "Kitchen Sink" by design. Excluding those already on the EOMA/PCMCIA CPU Card, the connectors include:

On the EOMA/PCMCIA CPU Card itself, it is not possible to dictate what connectors will be on the CPU Card (except an EOMA-compliant PCMCIA interface), but a typical example card might have:

  • 1x USB-OTG
  • Micro-HDMI
  • Micro-SD/MMC
  • 3-pin or 5-pin Audio Jack

Components might include:

  • TI SN75LVDS83b RGB/TTL-to-LVDS converter
  • Chrontel CH7036 LVDS-to-DVI/VGA converter
  • 2x GL850G 4-port USB Hubs
  • RT3070 USB-based 802.11bgn WIFI "SIP" Module
  • GPS "SIP" Module
  • Bluetooth "SIP" Module
  • GL832 USB-to-SD/MMC Module
  • I2C EEPROM
