yeah yesterday wasn't a good day: i learned that the NAND ICs which
are currently available are no longer compatible with the NAND BOOT
ROM on the A20. the A20's basically running out of time and i will
have to make a decision to put sub 1GB NAND ICs on-board to store the
bootloader *only*, and ship with MicroSD cards with the OS on it
the passthrough card i can't get it up and running in a
straightforward fashion: it's going to take time.
the microdesktop is going to need a rework as the microsd power
supply 3.3v line is back-feeding into VREFTTL of the A20 and
destabilising the processor. i'll need to put in high-speed
bi-directional level shifters. argh.
the rk3288 is almost up and running: i destroyed one processor and
RAM with a short between the 2v and 1.5v supply, and the first board i
had working will not talk to the SYR827 or anything else on the PMIC
I2C Bus. i have three remaining boards spare which i am slowly in the
process of double-checking the I2C bus first, before putting on the
SoC and then the $40 worth of DDR3 RAM. each IC added is risky.
all this was yesterday.
so i am Not A Happy Bunny.
