Congratulations to everyone.

I didn’t expect KFCI to happen this time as it was quite slow last year for arm development.

Thank you khadas for this.

Technically first.

Khadas can explain better.

It’s nice to be recognised on the list but I’ll abstain from receiving the prize. Khadas already sponsor LibreELEC in several ways and provide samples if/when we need them. I’ll be happy to see you promote the next-in-line contributors. Thanks and Happy New Year! … keep up the great work :slight_smile:

My hearty congratulations to all the members of the community and the winners of the KFCI award winners, you keep the forum and community alive and interesting and help bring the forum as an amazing place to information exchange.

As many know towards the end of last year, I have joined Khadas as intern to help with product development and documentation, and hope to continue a long term relation with the company to help build amazing products and software to the amazing user base.

To a great future ahead ! :wink: :heart:

This is my opinion on a next generation board.

  1. imx8m
  2. dual ethernet
    3)M2 onboard NVMe (no adapter board) gen 3 minimum.
    4)Layout the ports so the board can be easily mounted in a custom cabinet without using cables/adapters
    5)Full yocto support (core-image-minimal and core-image-weston), meta-khadas layer with full multimedia.
    6)Debian desktop image
    7)Header like the current Vim boards or a hybrid using something similar to Beagleboard capes. Stack a relay board, multiple what ever on top of the core board.
    8)RTC
    9)Barrel connector for the 12 volt, 12v so that a touch screen can be directly connected.
    10)Open the next design up with open source community involvement and get their input regarding features and functionality.

This is just a little bit of a wish list, I encourage others to add to the list.

Khadas has proved to be an amazing company with the finest products im super happy to be part of this community. WooW 500$ Gis Happy Days :beer::beer: plenty of booze now.
