HKG15-205: OpenTAC - Open Hardware Test Automation Controller

Speaker: Andy Simpkins, Neil Williams Date: February 10, 2015 ————————————————— ★ Session Summary ★ Power distribution automation and serial console controller on an ARM platform. OpenTAC is a community project using open hardware and free software. The hardware combines a PDU and serial console server in a single box and removes the forest of cables common to any developer desk or rack. Custom design PCB with full isolation of power and serial, support for 5V DC power, RS232 or UART serial, gigabit ethernet and per-device power consumption measurement. Implemented as a beaglebone-black cape and available in two variants, supporting 4 or 8 device channels respectively, to fit into a 1U case. Can be supplied with or without case. There is space inside the 4 channel variant for a small ARM server (e.g. cubietruck) with a SATA drive, making it ideal as a desktop or demonstrator unit. ————————————————– ★ Resources ★ Pathable: Presentation: Etherpad: ————————————————— ★ Event Details ★ Linaro Connect Hong Kong 2015 - #HKG15 February 9-13th, 2015 Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong Airport —————————————————
