Orange Pi 2G-IOT

Recommended Posts

(edited)

Hi, I wrote this news http://time4ee.com/news.php?readmore=170 about Orange Pi Zero Plus (SBC with SIM and Bluetooth) but I have a question.

I didn't hear about this processor RDA8810PL and my question is if armbian will support this board. I don't know if xunlong send you preliminary boards or not.

 

Thanks

 

P.S. The answer will be release in news :-)

Renamed - removed references to Zero Plus since the board was released

Performance seems to be impressively low: http://www.chinaprice.co.il/phone/antutu/5487/intex-aqua-g2  :)

I don't think this device is about performance, it's about a combination of a GSM modem and a camera interface IMO, so combined with a good camera (maybe with IR backlight) and a good case it can be a base for a DIY alarm / monitoring system or any kind of system with SMS control and GSM based internet connectivity.

Of course, was just kidding since if OPI Zero Plus is cheap enough the usual suspects will start to ask whether it could be used as desktop replacement and whether the GPU can properly decode 4K video (hoping for an LCD to be connected to the larger FCP connector). Regarding GSM: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2G#2G_shutdown

I'd rather see li-ion support than useless wifi. I mean, if this had battery support (or maybe even 3g for markets disabling 2g) it would be a perfect IoT board.

I just realized this has battery support. This is now almost a perfect IOT board (only other thing being 3g support).

Any ideas if 3g/wifi antennas come with the board as well or are those sold separately ?

So far there is no documentation (apart from the schematics) and no sources; also doesn't look like this SoC has even a tiny bit of mainlining progress, so chances of getting a fully supported Armbian image are very low.

For the curious people default (for the BootROM and image preflashed in the NAND) baud rate for the "debug" serial console is 921600

 

Edit: software package was released

Please, full SDK would be better to get inside info, thank you!

Later we wipe Android:)

 

Just in time:

@zador.blood.stained

Unless you already built an image without full SDK and could share your inside info on how to build it.

I won't mirror the full thing because it contains some things that it should not contain and I would prefer not to mirror those, and also it's 13.2GB unpacked.

... unless you know where to dump 7 or 13GB without a complicated registration procedure

Whatever you can share, thanks! Looks like who Ziped that SDK ziped img, obj, temp files, etc... Sure a clean would reduce that to half.

Mega is a pain for me, over quota every time.

Nope:

sudo apt install megatools
megadl https://mega.nz/#F\!59EVmKAZ\!5FdBb2dQIMcxgY2h16nGPg
cat OrangePi_2G-IOT0* | tar xf -

Exceeds 20GB in total of course :)

Which LCD is supported on this model? Connector looks like as on 4.3 inch reverse car LCD. Has somebody solved this issue?
