I threw together a couple of simple geometric models this weekend on the laser. As it happens, one nested nicely within the other. DXFs after the cut.
Query: what the hell is this thing I’ve been lugging around for the past three years?
It’s some sort of StrongARM development system. I think it may be related to the Intel “Brutus” eval boards, but I’m not certain. The daughterboard is labelled “SA1110 daughter card”; there’s nothing useful on the larger board. There’s a fairly anonymous StrongARM chip in the ZIF socket. It feels like some sort of demo unit, given how it’s all gussied up and under acrylic.
What’s on the big board?
- one USB client port
- three USB host ports
- two classic RS232 ports
- nine general-purpose indicator LEDs
- eight general-purpose switches
- two four-bit rotary switches
- eight seven-segment w/ decimal LED displays
- six audio jacks
- a CF slot
- a PCMCIA slot
- and innumerable spare headers, LEDs, switches, etc.
Intel sold off all its StrongARM/PXA properties years ago, and scrubbed pretty much anything useful from its website. Archive.org hasn’t been too helpful. Anyone have any leads?
