    8 Minutes before thermal throttling is still pretty impressive and I wouldn't think it unreasonable to need active cooling if you're going to peg all 4 cores for a long time on such a tiny board with a tiny heatsink.
    I'm always open for more testing though

    You can actually squeeze a NanoPi Duo, RJ45 MagJack (LED,GND pins off), a USB port, and tiny buck converter on a half-size breadboard.


     
    Seems to be working fine with a user built stretch image for the Orange Pi Zero target, at least initially.
    Max current @12vDC I saw was under 400mA with sysbench and WiFi running but more tests are needed.

    I bought one a couple weeks ago, it cleared customs yesterday so I hope to have it in a few days.  I saw the price of extra memory and the shield separately and got the kit.

    One like that with the built-in transformer should do it.  Anyone knowing better correct me, it's just been my go-to and has worked out so far. (not tried with this particular SoC/board)

    TarableCode got a reaction from lanefu in My weird hipster-y use case   
    I'm augmenting my iBook G3 with my pcDuino3 Nano to act as a wireless gateway and host for a development toolchain.
    It's working fine so far and once I'm done it will be completely powered by the FireWire port
     
    The only downsides are that it is a bit big and at idle it's taking ~250mA which I'm going to have to play with at some point and
    see if I can get it down any more.

    TarableCode got a reaction from chwe in Power supply rating?   
    Would it be safe to assume that without attaching any USB peripherals (aside from WiFi) it should be able to run from the firewire port provided I use a DC-DC converter?
    I would plan on hooking it directly into the 5v in header on the top and avoid the USB jack altogether.
     
    The board's main function is to provide WiFi to the ethernet connection and run devkitPro's devkitARM toolchain.
    In the end it'll stick onto the side of my iBook kind of like what the pi zero w does except through the ethernet jack instead of USB.
