Topic: Applications / I have a dream

Hi, good dream you have!

Are you interested in a device that functions like a E90, or both functions AND looks like a E90? The former is going to be very doable with the BUG, the latter is still doable but a lot more involved…

Topic: Applications / I have a dream

Hi to all, I have a dream. I’d like to have a smartphone like Nokia E90 but with Linux as OS. It’s possible to create HW e SW by myself using the items of BugLabs as HW and programming linux just for the mobile functions?(Of course, I think it’s extremely hard, but it’s my dream…)
Some expert can confirm or not it’s my dream it’s possible?
Thank you

Hi code_slave,

The graphics chip is part of the mx31 processor, you might want to check out the freescale website located here:


This is our platform, freescale has a linux distro which we made some minor modifications to. And the LCD is QVGA.

I think we answered all your questions, let us know if we missed any ;)

Topic: BUGbase / hardware question

Hi Guys,
I know your not ready to release Circuit diagrams yet.

But can you release details of the LCD interface.

Specifically , the graphics chip, and the connection system to the LCD
Or is the Graphic Chip/subsystem stored in the LCD module?

I’m interested in the "bug base" clipping INTO something , rather than the something clipping ONTO the bug base.
However my specific requirement is at least a 10.4 LCD touch screen (800*600)

The teleporter module is only real as long as you don’t look at or think about it.

Well don’t be making the same mistake as Sun will you.

Potentially for competitions, as you giving the hardware away , there should be no reason why you cannot include the "rest of the world"
It’s not going to break the bank ,and it’s not like you have any credit cards to validate.

But Initially I would understand your reluctance to ship paid for product to the rest of the globe.

Hi Guys,
Just looking at your product, with a view to finding a Dissertation subject for my MSc with a U.K University.

Established Java programmer , over 10 years.
I’ve done/am doing arm kernel work on both Atmel & Samsung processors,
And I had been looking for a java graphical environment pre-configured to run on arm S3C2440.

Is your platform code available yet?, as i was thinking about a port , for a potential project I was looking at.

I have the Eclipse and your sample java projects already running on OSX and can really see the potential for this.

The only reason we can’t get those vital parts yet is because the time shifter module hasn’t passed QA yet. GOSH!
