Yeah, should have gone there before I commented! But you hit on my big worry is that Qualcomm is a very closed company and using the board would be quite problematic in a commercial setting without full access to the docs. Libraries often turn out to be either incomplete or designed for a very narrow use case(s). It will be interesting to see how this works.

I am looking forward to playing with this board for a couple of projects! Thanks for the pointer and the heads up. Nice to see they have both Linux and Android BSPs.

If you go to their web site, your will see that this is a commercial board. They also have a Qseven expansion slot variant of the same processor for inclusion as a processor base into a custom design. I doubt the full chip docs will be available, more likely, access and customization will be through libraries.

Will all chip docs be available? Is this an open source project or a commercial board? Michael
