IGEPv2 board

Hi,

Seems like they have finally started selling IGEPv2 board:
http://www.igep-platform.com/

It looks like a nice beagleboard clone with upgraded RAM and more peripherals
on board.

Could any of the early adopters test whether it has a stable USB host
(reliable enough to use with an external HDD)?

What has been upgraded on the ram front? Looks like the same RAM/NAND chip to me.

According to the webpage and the hardware manual:
"4Gb NAND/ 4Gb Mobile Low Power DDR SDRAM @ 200 Mhz (Package on Package - PoP
technology)"

Which looks like quite a big improvement in terms of both size and
performance.

Could this be 4Gigabit NAND and 4 Gigabit RAM, which when divided by 8 bits/byte becomes 512MByte NAND and 512MByte RAM ??

Indeed, I was looking at the "board size" picture, which has the exact
same "J192" PoP as on my beagles :slight_smile:

The preliminary hardware reference says it has 512 MBytes LPDDR SDRAM –
200 Mhz and 512 Mbytes nand flash
So it shourd be It

Also as that fact figure in the changelog it is possible the size
comparison is a photo of an older version, before they switched to a
bigger ram/flash module.

hi here,
I received my igepv2 board EVK last week....yes it comes with
512Mbytes onenand flash.
This EVK comes with poky distribution on nandflash.

Hi,
I recommend you to work with igepv2.
I have some doubts at the beginning regarding the wifi but I found the
answers on myigep forum (www.myigep.com/forum). Wifi works great..
with internal antenna. If you have any problem, ISEE people give you
free support on its forum. You only need to register.

You will also find instructions of how to create de SD on myigep wiki
(wiki.myigep.com) or go directly to http://wiki.myigep.com/trac/wiki/HowToGetTheUbuntuDistribution

Now delivery time is less than 1 week. I now that because I order
another board this week and ISEE Sales inform me that I will receive
it next week.

I have had a very good experience with IGEPv2 board. I recommend you
at least to evaluate one unit.

Mike
