This is my first ARM hardware purchase to arrive, and I’m excited about it!
It is still sitting in a box until I have time to devote to messing with it and waiting for support items to arrive that I got from eBay (shipped from China):
- USB To RS232 TTL UART PL2303HX Auto Converter USB to COM Cable Adapter Module
- 10cm 2.54mm Female to Female Dupont Wire Jumper Cable for Arduino Breadboard
- CP2102 USB 2.0 to TTL UART Module 6Pin Serial Converter STC Replace FT232 Module
So, a task for this weekend is to read the manuals provided, watch youtube videos from others detailing the device, and see about powering it on (and booting off the Ubuntu image on the included SD card). I have no idea about NetBSD support at the moment, that will be a secondary project, as I need to ensure it is working as intended before monkeying with NetBSD support and troubleshooting.
Here is a video of it all put together and what I should expect, using the Ubuntu image.
