VoCore v1.0

Now, all source are able to download fromΒ http://www.vocore.io/wiki/index/id:11, as I promised, once the package shipped, the code open.
That layout file is .asc which should be imported by PADS2007 or later version.(The PCB factory only accept PADS due to they only have PADS) Welcome to change it to other CAD format. πŸ™‚

VoCore & Intel Edison & MT7688

Two days busy on the shipping and dealing with factory about the dock assemble test, here are some news:

First News:
Intel Edison comes.

I made a simple compare πŸ™‚

VoCore Win
VoCore -> 25.6 x 25.6 x 3.4;
Edison -> 35.5 x 25.0 x 3.9;

VoCore -> 1.8V 200mA, 3.3V 300mA;
Edison -> 1.8V 100mA, 3.3V 100mA;

VoCore -> 3.3V ~ 6.0V
Edison -> 3.3V ~ 4.5V

VoCore -> 20USD
Edison -> 50USD

Edison Win
Edison: x86Β x 2, 1GB memory
VoCore: MIPS, 32MB memory

Edison: BlueTooth
VoCore: N/A

Edison: 4GB eMMC
VoCore: 16MB SPI Flash

VoCore -> 5V, 200mA
Edison -> 3.3V, 300mA

VoCore -> passed, without shell
Edison -> passed, with shell

I am so happy my VoCore still have some points beat the Intel Edison πŸ˜€ VoCore is totally open source, but I think Intel will never do that.

Second News:
MT7688 is coming, I heard some rumours, the final chip has two versions, one with 8MB memory(not enough πŸ™ ), one without memory, speed is same as MT7620, 580MHz, but power consume is 0.6watt(is this greater than AR9331’s 0.5watt?)
