With modern clustering software, such thoughts become practical reality. And with some cardboard, everything goes together nicely.
The Senoko battery board contains an STM32 chip, and runs its own separate operating system. The computer itself has 10 kilobytes of RAM and 64 kilobytes of storage space, where the operating system lives. This operating system is responsible for keeping the battery charged, monitoring the power button, acting as
The world of early board boot is a weird one. Hard-and-fast rules of programming don't necessarily apply here, and things have an annoying tendency to work only sometimes. I finally revisited the pre-boot environment this week, due in part to bringing up the dual-core version of Novena, which differs from
This post is coming to you from Novena PVT, running off of Senoko PVT on battery. In engineering, there are several different versions of pre-release hardware. Novena itself has gone through three: EVT (engineering verification test), DVT (design verification test), and PVT (production verification test). The first revision was very
