Found oneA small complaint but a complaint all the same.Well for Open Source software that would actually be unusual to enforce such restrictions since the GPL is very widespread, but for hardware projects this is actually rare to see anything much open.I wonder how long it'll be until someone (without irony) complains that since there's the restriction that these can't be used for commercial purposes that it's not actually "open".
Thanks, I added that one into the Pandora_PCB.zip-Archive as well.Since this has been released, here are Rev5C (or CC pandora) schematics:
same license and restrictions apply as for Pandora_PCB.zip
The differences from 6D are both LCD and USB using the same supply (so that overloading USB port makes LCD flicker) and lack of wifi and other tweaks across the board.
Please no for many many reasons discussed at length here:Here are the guidelines on how to get Pyra certified as Open Hardware by Free Software Foundation
If all the requirements are met, Pyra would get into this nice list:
That should attract a lot of geeks who were not previously interested in Pandora/Pyra :
because Pyra would have a lot more performance than old rebranded ThinkPad "free laptop" !
Not everyone really needs the GPU though, at least not all of the time. I know I rarely use the GPU in the Pandora. Despite lunixbochs and p'titSebs great efforts to make me want to use itWon't work with and SGX driver.
Yes, I agree with you that having open-source WiFi is very important, - also because WiFi is directly related to security of systemNon-working gpu, or limited, isnt really a selling feature, not that i think ive ever used mine.
Since the CPU is on its own board, i think its interesting to have the mainboard be free of proprietary drivers. Wifi drivers is the deciding factor there.
