My Dream RPi Device

Tue Feb 28, 2017 11:35 pm

Something in the style of the USB Armory, but in an even smaller form-factor and with eMMC. Maybe a thinner Compute Module, but with a USB A male connector?

The USB A male connector (a USB-C version would be great too) on the end would support USG OTG and power the device. When plugging it into your computer, it'd use the Linux gadget functionality to present a serial and Ethernet device to the Host OS. You could then login to the device using either serial or Ethernet. It'd also support WiFi and Bluetooth.

A small number of GPIOs would be fine (similar to the USB Armory). The end that's opposite the USB A male connector could also have a micro-HDMI connector and a micro-USB connector for peripherals.

Thanks!
