Mango-DVK OpenWrt Devkit Features 2.5GbE, WiFi 6 SoM powered by Qualcomm IPQ6000/IP6010 SoC

We’ve been covering some 802.11ax WiFI 6 embedded networking boards from Wallys Communications and Compex in the last few months, but 8devices has now entered the fray with Qualcomm IPQ6000/IPQ6010 powered Mango WiFi 6 system-in-module available in commercial or industrial temperature range, as well as as a development kit based on the module.

Mango SoM supports dual-band 2×2 MiMo 802.11ax and multi-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, features up to 2GB RAM, 256MB NAND flash, and runs OpenWrt Linux with target applications including routers, gateways, and access points.

There’s actually no information about software on the company website nor the wiki, but 8devices told CNX Software the module supported OpenWrt Linux. As a side note, Qualcomm Atheros IPQ6000 happens to be the processor used in Xiaomi Mi Router AX1800, and there’s no mainline OpenWrt firmware for the router, so you’d likely have to rely on 8devices BSP at first.

    1. Fully agreeing here.

      Has anyone a clue about the capabilities of the sfp cage, gbit, or up to the max of the serdes?

    1. Well someone has to start with mainlining support, so the classical chicken vs egg situation.

      If the bsp is of acceptable quality, I’ll still go for it.
      Else it’s not an unreasonable amount of money spent for a plastic router either.

  1. 8devices is such a neat company. their modules are always gorgeous & cutting edge. hopefully qcom hasn’t puked up an unusable bsp but you know that’s how it usually goes. 8devices support was pretty good for the carambola2 i got, ages ago, openwrt based. these days i’d rather a real linux than the router-specific toolkit, if possible, but it’s hard, hard hard hard, making use of chips is hard. even after all this time, an a53, more likely than not that most of the good capabilities are not usable in mainline, if usable at all under mainline.

    such a gorgeous module. this kind of pure wifi machine SoM is just so so elegant. would that modules this amazing be more of a thing in the world.
