I'm the guy that is designing a new motherboard for the Fairphone.
Since than a lot of things changed, and the project is almost completed.
Now I just need some help from Fairphone, maybe some kind of experienced engineer that could look over it and might find some mistakes, but last but least somebody that is able to devolop software for the board.
There are three parts,
- The software for the processor
- The software for the SMC (basicly just a microcontroler with a special interface to the CPU)
- Some kind of BIOS
The hardware used:
- 128GB Micron eMMC
- Sierra Wireless WP LTE module w. 2-Core ARM based CPU (1x Telecom Core 1x General Purpose Core)
- Intel Atom x7 z8750
- 8gb LPDDR3 800mhz RAM
- TI WiFi+Bluetooth module
- Microchip MEC170x SMC
- Dual 64mbit BIOS/UEFI
- QI Charger
- TI Audio CODEC
- A lot of testpoints that could be useful for testing
If you can help me with any of the Software or hardware related steps neccessary to complete the project, that would be very nice. If you decided that you want to help me or you're just interested, I can send you documentation like boardview, schematics or links to the datasheets of the ICs
