I really like these kind of boards.

Did you see anyone with MIPI interface? (for lcd) Some from Merri have, but they have lots of things I do not need…


They are LVDS, if want connect a small size HD screen must use MIPI interface. As I have seen only MTK boards have this.

They are nerf-ed in a lot of Dev boards as to avoid ISP licensing, which is absurd at this point.


To Javi, so far, We Boardcon has no boards has a MIPI Interface, but MIPI interface is future tender, as now most big siz LCD are using MIPI interface.

Yeah faster than RPi v2 (900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7) and has RTC, but more pricey.
To me the Linux support is crucial. Also do you see the SATA interface made A10 so interesting ?
