Temperature rating - that can easily justify the higher price. > Another small-board imx6 possibility is the Hummingboard from SolidRun. > I now have freebsd running on a SolidRun Cubox-i4, so I expect no large > drama in getting it working on other SolidRun imx6 products.

Completely forgot that the Hummingboard uses modules as well and the modules are even very small. -- B.Walter <be...@bwct.de> http://www.bwct.de Modbus/TCP Ethernet I/O Baugruppen, ARM basierte FreeBSD Rechner uvm. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
