Yes, that's right, you've read that correctly: this device houses a fully working Debian dev-environment in less space then a luxury DVD case Surprised

Point thy browser to https://www.ledato.de/shop_content.php?coID=14&language=en

Bazza, eat your heart out!! Very Happy (and any other readers keen on getting their hands on cheap (-ish) hardcore hardware Wink) The starterkit (aka developer bundle) retails at less then 200 Euro.

Dimensions (NanosG20 Linux SBC)
* 100 x 79.8 x 16 mm

(SBC: Single Board Computer)

With the given hardware and onboard tools, I think it's definitely feasible for someone to create an SATA interface (hardware and driver) to access an SSD. Imagine the possibilities.... Mr. Green

Hi LeeNukes...

> Just a shame its so expensive.

To those that want it, price is no object, 200 Euros is hardly breaking
the bank for hardcore metal bangers.

AND, as DM has pointed out, it isn`t aimed at you but more at me;
hence the RS232 and 485 ports.

Of great use to me but probably useless to you.

<from_the_web>
Interfaces (internal)

* 2-channel 10-bit ADC
* 1 x TWI (IC compatible)
* 2 x SPI
* Up to 3 USART (TTL)
* Up to 20 digital I/O ports
* DBGU (TTL)
</from_the_web>

2 x 10 bit ADCs is OK, doesn`t give sps rating but will
probably be as good as a decent sound card...

BUT the possibility of 1 x high speed 20 bit DAC -- WAY COOL.

See now I just think your stringing random letters together to sound impressive. Very Happy

You could be right, and I might be interested if it had an HMR42 topside interface with 664rps of JSCAT, but you can't seem to get them anywhere. Very Happy

Don't forget that it comes with a full R2D2 and C3PO circuitry. All backed up by an impressive THX-1138 and fully supported by a powerful ED209. Laughing

Hi Jokers...

My turn for the p*** take now...

DM...

> do, he should be applauded for it.

Cheers; I would guess some can, but very few.

> It just might be a nice how-to article for
> LXF in the making you know ;)

I doubt it will make an article at all. The mag seems to be more
interested in the usual run-o-the-mill stuff.

nelz...

> Yeah, he uses Windows :P

Age is catching up as your short term memory is failing... ;o)

Rhakios...

> I'd be more grateful if he did the stuff I don't want to do. :P

Aha, so you have home brew HW/SW in the pipeline?
Care to share with us? ;oO

You never know unless you try. Maybe it's just that there are more willing and able to write the "run-o-the-mill" stuff.

Removing it from your laptop a few days ago doesn't count, not unless you also ceremoniously burned the install discs Razz

No, I was thinking of the ironing (not using a soldering iron) and perhaps, painting some doors, so that I can spend more time relaxing on my week off, next week.
