i have a general question about shopping gumstix. I
searched through the website and online shop of gumstix.com.
I found a lot of broken links, also i wish i could
get a few bigger pictures of the expansions boards, to see which connectors are
available in detail and how they look like.
Where have you bought your gumstix ? Over this
webshop ? Do you know shipping costs to Germany ? According the website (at
least pages in German): "Please fill in info about shipping here" - so i can
enter 0 Euros here ? Don't think so...
Is the hirose adapter a very small adapter (pin to
pin distance ?) or is there something to adapt it to a 2,54 mm pcb ? Has one of
the expansion board a full or at least partial access to pin of the hirose
According the bluetooth functionality: What can i
do with it ? What profiles are supported out of the box with gumstix ? I think
there is no GUI on top, because of missing VGA card, so only text based
input/output. Is entering a PIN possible, to get encrypted links ? Any support
for FTP as server, so i can reach the gumstix from my PC ? The serial port -
what is connected to the serial port ? Is there a console attached ? Or must i
connect it myself ?
Another last question: Power consumption. What is
the needed current in idle mode and under full performance (e.g. there was a
calculation with FFT the last days on this mailing list). How much mA is needed
for driving it ?
Regards and many thanks for answers,
