Embedded Roving Devices

howto Add comments

After a failed attempt to use a Dream Cheeky OIC to discipline a dog’s affection for a sofa, I see that the AC13 roving tank is upgraded. http://www.openipcam.com/forum/index.php?topic=261.0 shows a teardown of the older AC13, http://techbloginator.wordpress.com/2013/02/09/spytank-teardown/ has a more recent teardown but seems unaware of the previous.

AC13 Spytank
FlashROM S29GL032N S29GL032N
CPU Winbond W90N745
(a 128-bit chip)
128 pin TQFP – no discernable labeling or markings
Linux 2.4.20 unknown
wifi RT2870 RT3070
Audio Driver unknown GPY0030B

The real question is whether I could get away with purchasing this newer variant in an attempt to begin milling a proper embedded OS for it (rather than the serial fire-and-forget what’s-inittab-for crap most often seen)

Projects. Hmm. Need a workshop first…
