 * The board design should be Open Source if possible

OSHW allows multiple manifacturers to produce the same board. Some OSHW boards (e.g. OLinuXino) are also designed to allow easier soldering (even by hand). See OpenSourceHardware

Hardware Requirements

/!\ INF: Please help extending the information in this page

Refer to Targeted Hardware for hardware that may satisfy these requirements.

The hardware must/should/may ...

Non-functional requirements

  • It must have at least one serial interface
  • It should have at least one JTAG interface

  • It must have at least one network interface
  • Noise level must be below 20 dB
  • It must have storage interfaces, at least one of them:

Performance requirements

  • It must be able to execute all Freedom Box software at less than half of the CPU load

Power requirements

  • It should not consume over 15W at full CPU load

Physical requirements

  • It should be reduced in size, not bigger than a set-top box.

Environmental requirements

  • It must work perfectly between 0-40ºC

Quality

  • Manufacturers should give a minimum of 1 year warranty for a system running 24/7. (Devices that fail sooner are a danger to the reputation of the FreedomBox.)

Price

  • The hardware should be as cheap as possible, but not cheaper...

Open Source Hardware

  • The board design should be Open Source if possible

OSHW allows multiple manifacturers to produce the same board. Some OSHW boards (e.g. OLinuXino) are also designed to allow easier soldering (even by hand). See OpenSourceHardware

INF: At the first version we do not need to be too ambitious, rugged and harsh environment as well as rechargeable energy powered devices are desired but not at this point
