    markbirss got a reaction from guidol in ESPTerm - a nice Idea fore the Debug-Port   
    I checked with the author to see if we could really increase the 80x25 terminal size. 
    He said at the time he set the 80x25 limit it was due to the limited available ram of the ESP8266 devices
    My attempts to try 80x30 was not yet successful

    markbirss reacted to ChrisK in NanoPI NEO / AIR   
    It should be noted, however, that such thick SILPADS are quite bad when it comes to thermal resistance. While in some cases using such a thick pad and some metal may be better than nothing at all, it is better to avoid them and find a better solution. Using thermal pads or paste or glue is mainly to bridge air gaps due to imperfect surfaces. That stuff isn't really that thermally conductive at all, it just happens to be better than air. The general rule is that such layers should be as thins possible.
    Using a small 14x14x10mm heatsink, attached with thermal glue, is very likely to be far better than a 4mm SILPAD and a big piece of metal. Nice, suitable heatsinks for the H3 would be these: Add a very small dab of heat conductive glue, for example, then put on the heatsink, align it and finally press it down _really_ good (most of the glue should squeeze out on the sides). Let it sit for a while until it's cured, done.

    markbirss reacted to tkaiser in H6 boards: Orange Pi One Plus, Orange Pi 3 Plus and Pine H64   
    What do we know now? Not much  -- most importantly that some details will change and 'board available soon'.
    We have a H6 Product Brief available and a few selected developers already had a look into user manual (NDA situation right now, so not possible to get any answers from them  )
    So all we know is really just:
    H6 is limited wrt DRAM (2GB DDR4/DDR3/DDR3L max), I know the DRAM manufacturer from the modules in my Beelink X2 but have forgotten the name The Ampak module might be an AP6356S providing dual-band/dual-antenna Wi-Fi + BT 4.1 Gigabit Ethernet (H6 is said to have a 2nd Fast Ethernet MAC/PHY but no idea how/whether exposed here -- maybe available on pin headers to be combined with an external MagJack like it's possible on ROCK64 or NanoPi Duo)  One HDMI is a v2.0a output for sure, the other can be another HDMI output (LCD to HDMI converter) or maybe also a HDMI to TS input (depends on the type of chip behind the left HDMI port) eMMC on board One of the USB receptacles is blue (USB3 SuperSpeed), the other is USB2 and I would believe the remaining USB2 port is available on pins 36/38 of the mPCIe connector allowing to attach 'miniPCIe WWAN modems' (to be combined with the SIM card slot -- AFAIK these modems use USB at a 3.3V logic level) the mPCIe slot also exposes H6's single PCIe 2.x lane there's AV, optical audio out and an IR receiver (positioned IMO somewhat strangely since if rotated 90° on the PCB side next to its actual location OPi 3 Plus combined with a little enclosure would already make up for a complete TV box)

    markbirss reacted to martinayotte in Orange Pi Zero, dev kernel does not see expansion USB ports   
    Be aware that OPi Zero NAS expansion board has 2 USB connectors, but only the one at the center is a real USB host.
    The other USB connectors at left near the barrel power DC is a USB Input to allow connecting the USB Hub to Non-Zero boards with a Male-Male cable.
    Plugging anything in this USB Input on a OPiZero is somehow shorting the whole hub which is already connected thru the pins header.

    If you want to attach I2S sound card on this particular board (Opi Zero) you will need to solder stuff. Get rather an Orange Pi PC+ board. It's few more extra bucks but you have analogue audio connector, I2S on header and more. On board wireless is also little better.
    For hifi sound you need an extra board / external DAC, something like this ...

    It was the firmware and the files in the /lib/firmware/ap6212
    Here is a procedure:
    1) Download the firmware
    git clone or
    git clone 2) Rename nvram_ap6212.txt to nvram.txt:
    mv ~/BPI_>WiFi_Firmware/ap6212/nvram_ap6212.txt ~/BPI_>WiFi_Firmware/ap6212/nvram.txt  3) Copy the ap6212 folder into /lib/firmware folder
    sudo cp -r ~/BPI_>WiFi_Firmware/ap6212 /lib/firmware Then,
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up should work
