This post describes a project to place an Embest LCD8000-70T 7-inch display in an aluminum enclosure suitable for use with a similarly enclosed RIoTboard SBC.   References   Metal Enclosure for RIoTboard https://www.element14.com/community/community/designcenter/single-board-computers/riotboard/blog/2017/05/13/metal-enclosure-for-riotboard   Motivation   The Embest LCD8000-70T touchscreen display ships as a bare board with no enclosure.  A thin ribbon cable is used ...
This post describes a metal enclosure suitable for use with the RIoTboard provided you have some time and access to the proper tools.   I have been looking for an enclosure for my RIoTboard for a number of reasons:   1.  I have a tendency to inadvertently press the reset switch (S1) if I use the board in my workspace without any enclosure and attempt to move the board. 2.  My workspace is prone to static discharge for a number of reasons, and I would like to avoid frying t ...
This post documents a recent build of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for RIoTboard on a fresh installation of openSUSE 13.2 x86_64. The build images were transferred to an SD card using Linux commands rather than using the MFGTool.   HARDWARE AND BUILD OS   Gateway NE56R12u Laptop running openSUSE 13.2 x86_64 DVD      2.1 GHz Intel B950 dual-core Pentium processor      8 GB physical RAM      135 GB /home partition for build  ...

This post describes a procedure to generate a Linux SD card image for RIoTboard using Yocto on an openSUSE 13.2 x86_64 host.  This procedure is just a clone of the excellent procedure documented by Bryan Hinton (referred to below as B.H. for brevity) with a handful of alterations to accommodate a different host OS, more modest host hardware, minor changes in the resulting Yocto build and one or two issues peculiar to my combination of hardware and software.  Bryan's document enumerates ...
Erich Styger provided an excellent description of how to connect the FTDI-based Embest  UART8000-U USB-to-TTL cable to the J18 interface on the RIoTboard in order to create a system console on a Windows host in the following post   http://mcuoneclipse.com/2014/07/21/terminal-connection-to-the-riot-board/   This post will describe how to connect a Prolific-based JBtek/Adafruit USB-to-TTL cable to the RIoTboard J18 interface in order to create a system console on a Windows host i ...
