Nice to hear from someone who's actually seen one. Can you comment on a couple things?:
- It looks like the JTAG port has a uSD from factor. How does this work? Is it compatible with my guru JTAG box? If so, how do I connect it? Do I need a special cable?
You can use your Guruplug JTAG with a standard cable.
- I'm still skeptical about whether the Guruplug reliability problems were ever fully understood (and whether they were all thermal related). Have you done any testing under high I/O loads? I'm particularly interested in running with wifi in client mode with lots of wifi traffic. Is the wifi chip the same as the Guruplug and if so, are the supplied drivers the same version or newer?
James has been playing with it, not me, and I believe that we don't have any specific tests for high loads. What I can tell you is that:
- it does seem to have basically the same rootfs as the Guruplug (including the wireless stuff), but it most certainly doesn't overheat. (The power adapter is separated from the main board, in a moulding that can be joined on to the main unit). There's also good heat dissipation from the heatsink.
- As far as I understand it, the rootfs is not necessarily finalised.
