OpenHours #51 – More on the HiKey960 and AOSP with John Stultz and Vishal



OpenHours Episode #51 – For those who missed our special episode #50 of OpenHours, you can still catch it on YouTube. This week will be some what of a relaxing episode as we look back at the amazing HiKey960 product launch. We will address some questions that we were unable to answer during the show, and then move on to talking about some more of the key features around this new board. Anyone who is interested in reading more on the HiKey960 can check out the new landing page before hand. We look forward to people bringing their questions and comments. We will of course address any questions around 96Boards in general.

@Rob, will address shortly

Rob Gries – RG
Awesome! Thanks!

sudhakar – S
Using Dragonboard 410c, do you have secure boot sample implementation?

maddog – M
The PCI-E will allow a lot of people to do device driver support
Manufacturing does not work like that. Not hitting “sweet spot” may make less memory more expensive

as far as i know you need to be a subscribed licensee to enable secure boot on snapdragon 410c. some interesting information on inforce site here: https://www.inforcecomputing.com/inforce-qualcomm-secure-boot-prevents-malicious-software

Shovan Sargunam – SS
I have to go. Robert good job with crossing 50 OpenHours. Maybe we should have OpenHours party next week

m_w – M
we can fork the design the and do whatever we want, it is open hardware

Victor – V
@sudhakar the db410c boot chain is pbl sbl lk linux. I think (not 100% sure) pbl will authenticate sbl and sbl will authenticate lk, but both pbl and sbl are proprietary. You can maybe mod lk to authenticate the kernel, but i don’t think these are done in the releases since that would only prevent kernel development on the boards

HiKey 960: Google And Huawei’s Up-market Raspberry Pi Alternative Runs Android 7.1 And Linux

Short Bytes: Google, Huawei, and Linaro have worked together to release HiKey 960 mini Computer which runs Android and Linux. It’s an officially supported Android reference board which can be used by developers to code software for ARM-based systems. It’s powered by Huawei’s octa-core Kirin 960 chip, LPDDR4 RAM, and Mali-G71 GPU.

Whenever we hear the name Android, the first thought that comes to our minds is an OS that powers the most of the smartphones all over the world. Yet, over time, it has grown to turn into one of the main players in the OS world by finding its place on smart devices, televisions, PCs, autos, etcetera. This also has created new opportunities for Android developers since they can code apps for devices of diverse form factors.

So now, to help the developers code application for ARM systems without having to be reliant on Chromebooks or Intel x86 systems, Google, Huawei, and Linaro have presented HiKey 960.It is priced at $239 and measures 85x55mm.

HiKey 960 single board PC is a effective Raspberry Pi alternative which runs Android. The device is powered by the Huawei’s octa-cire Kirin 960 chip which powers the Mate 9 flagship additionally.
