RE: Query: Beagle Board

Hello,

This is Maniyan from Tata Elxsi. We are interested with Beagle board for our product development purpose. Please find our list of queries as follows:

  • Can MMC/SD slot support WiFi cards? If yes, please mention the list of supported vendors and the availability of Linux driver.
  • Can MMC/SD slot support Camera? If yes, please mention the list of supported vendors and the availability of Linux driver. Also provide us the product details for the same.
  • We understood from Beagle HRM that ASOHOUSB, TU-ET100C 10, SABRENT are the supported USB to Ethernet adapter. We would like to know the availability of Linux for those devices. Also indicate us, if this has any limitations.
  • We understood from Beagle HRM that 4410-00-00-AF, HWUGI & TEW 429UF are the supported USB to WiFi adapter. We would like to know the availability of Linux for those devices. Also indicate us, if this has any limitations.
  • What are the CODECs (both Audio & Video) available along with SDK?
  • Does the external USB Hub (self powered) is tested with Beagle board? Can we connect Ethernet / WiFi, Camera and Keyboard simultaneously with the USB Hub?
  • Can the OMAP SDK use with Beagle board? (We shall create CODEC engine, port our CODEC, etc)
  • Does OMAP has Serial port to run the console application?
  • In Beagle HRM, section ‘Known Issue’, it is mentioned that the USB host port has been removed due to some instability. Is this issue still open? If yes, what are the implications and when it is expected to fix this issue?

Senthil,

Requesting you to coordinate and help us with the response for the above queries.

Regards,
Maniyan

220 mA is the max current available on MMC slot.

WiFi card should draw less than 200 mA, which i guess is NOT the case
with most of the cards.
