[COMPLETE][GROUP BUY] BeagleBone/PocketBeagle based controllers
« on: February 04, 2019, 12:20:07 PM »
Please read all info and ask any questions before ordering.

Group-Buy/Pre-Sale closing date is March 1, 2019. Payments are required at the time of order.  Orders will not be processed until payment received.   It will then likely take about 6-8 weeks for manufacture and ship from China at which point I will do further testing before shipping out to you.  Deliveries likely beginning of May.

This is a group buy thread for various "capes" that are mounted either to a full size BeagleBone Black or PocketBeagle that are running FPP.  The capes in this group buy include the F8-PB, F8-B, PocketScroller, F32-B, and F40D-PB.

More information about each controller can be found at:
F8-PB: https://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,10533.0.html
F8-B (v2): https://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,10534.0.html
F32-B (v2): https://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,10538.0.html
F40D-PB: https://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,10597.0.html
PocketScroller: https://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,10598.0.html

The boards will be sold completely assembled and will include all fuses and connectors.  The PocketBeagle based capes can optionally be purchased with the PocketBeagle pre-mounted.

Prices:
  • F8-B: $48
  • F32-B: $92
  • F8-PB: $48
  • F40D-PB: $41
  • PocketScroller: $16
  • PocketBeagle pre-mounted: $30
If you don't purchase the PocketBeagle pre-mounted, you will need one with female headers mounted on the bottom.  (I will include the required female headers)

Shipping (Lower 48 US)  - Except for the F32-B, these are fairly small.  2 can fit in a Priority Mail small flat rate box at $8.   Up to 4 will ship in a slightly larger box for $11.   Shipping for more than 4 or for the F32-B will be via a Priority Mail medium flat rate box at $14.  (up to 3 F32-B's can fit into a single medium box)

Post below your requested items/qty and send payment with shipping to dan@kulp.com  On PayPal payment include forum username in comment field.  Please make sure shipping address is included.

Example Order:
ItemQtyCostTotal Cost
F8-B1$48$48
F32-B0$92$0
F8-PB1$48$48
F40D-PB0$41$0
PocketScroller1$16$16
PocketBeagle2$30$60
Shipping$11
Total$183
PayPal shipping address will be used.  Make sure it is correct!

You WILL need:
For PocketBeagle based capes:

  • PocketBeagle (or select the option to have one pre-mounted)
  • A decent sized/speed SD card - the PocketBeagle has no eMMC so the SD card is critical.  The OS and sequences and everything run off the SD card.   I STRONGLY recommend a large (>=32GB) SanDisk Ultra or similar that is fast and has plenty of space and is rated for the temperatures we encounter.
  • A USB network adapter supported by FPP.  Wifi or Ethernet is fine.
  • If using Wifi, a MicroUSB data cable to do the USB tether to setup the network information.   (this is useful for ethernet as well, but dhcp can work) If you have an Android phone or Kindle or Pi or similar, you likely already have one of these.
For BBB based capes:
  • A BeagleBone Black, BeagleBone Black Wireless, BeagleBone Green, or SanCloud BeagleBone Enhanced.  Note: a BeagleBone Green Wireless CANNOT be used.
  • A decent sized/speed SD card - I STRONGLY recommend a large (>=32GB) SanDisk Ultra or similar that is fast and has plenty of space and is rated for the temperatures we encounter.   The OS can be flashed to the internal eMMC and run from there, but at only 4GB in size, space is limitted.
  • Optional: A USB wifi adapter supported by FPP.
  • Optional: a MicroUSB data cable to do the USB tether to help setup the network information.
Also note:  if you want F8-PB's or PocketScrollers sooner than May, I have some in stock at a slightly higher "non group buy" price.   Contact me for details.

Let me know if I didn't calculate the shipping correctly. I wasn't sure if 3 F32-B's can fit in a medium flat rate box.

Dan,


I didn't see it mentioned, but I'm guessing these PocketScrollers will be V1.1 (or newer) with the additional "E" signal to support 1:32 scan panels?
Also, are you no longer offering your V2 Octroscrollers?

They will be the 1.2 version which is pictured in the "Intro" thread.  They have the working E line.    The differences between v1.1 and v1.2 are:
1) Surface mount buffer chip
2) Additional ESD protection/prevention chip for the USB port to prevent static discharge issues plugging/unplugging USB devices while on


Pinout/capabilities are exactly the same.

I have plenty of blank boards for them if anyone is interested.   My son is no longer interested in assembling them.  :(     I can easily throw the blank boards into any other order for $1.   I could also assemble a few kits if anyone is interested.   I'd need to double check, but I should have all the ports and buffers and such for at least 4 or 5 kits.


I also have blank boards for "F8-B v1.00" which is a fully through hole version of the F8-B minus the expansion port.   I don't have all the parts for full kits, but again, I can throw a blank board into any order for $1.   I have some of the parts, but definitely not all of them.


If someone wants something to learn how to solder on, they are great.  You could likely get a controller up and running fairly cheap and learn to solder in the process. The F8-B you could just order/populate the parts that are "required" for your use case to be even cheaper.   Example:  don't need the differential outputs?  don't populate the differential chips and RJ45 ports.

Dang it I should have waited on my order that would have been great for me to learn to solder on. Oh well!
