Openmoko Beagle Hybrid

This project provides a PCB extension board and software to combine a Beagle Board with a Freerunner compatible display and case.

The goal is to provide a demonstrator and experimentation platform how a future modern state-of the art Openmoko device with ARM-Cortex A8 and UMTS could be (neglecting miniaturization). This allows to develop software and new user interfaces. When packing the board into a Freerunner case, one can provide sound (microphone, earset, speaker) and vibracall.

What it is good for

  • experimenting with touchscreen and new user interfaces on Beagleboard
  • learn how the OMAP3530 design works
  • make it a mobile application development platform by adding a battery pack and a UMTS usb stick
  • investigate how an Openmoko with UMTS and OMAP3530 feels (not from haptics but screen operation and UMTS speed)
  • porting SHR, QtMoko, Android, etc. to ARM-Cortex A8, NEON

Features

  • PCB that fits into Freerunner case (top cover and middle part after cutting a hole)
  • works also outside of a case
  • Toppoly LCM interface (same display as used in the Freerunner - otherwise it would not fit into the case)
  • TSC2007 touch screen controller
  • Microphone
  • Earset connector (for Freerunner case)
  • 2 buttons (AUX and Power)
  • 2 dual color LEDs (in the AUX and Power buttons)
  • vibracall driver
  • headset jack to connect microphone, earset and speaker
