G400D Beta Evaluation Kit


#1

What is the difference between the G400D Beta Evaluation Kit that I have and the G400 HDR Breakout and G400D SOM production releases available for purchase today.

The image of the G400HDR on https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/416 shows v 1.2, the same as the beta evaluation kit. And the images for the G400D SOM shows v 1.2 NOT FOR Production on https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/400, same as the beta evaluation kit.

Can the G400HDR and the G400D SOM be considered ready for production by upgrading to the latest firmware?


#2

There’s at least one identified issue (Ethernet) that was identified in the beta of the G400-D module. Whether there are any changes to the HDR holder is probably less important.

I suspect the GHI team are just using the same images or are still pending the production images, and you should NOT assume that there is a simple firmware update to turn the not-for-production-use module into something usable in production.

Hi,

the breakout board G400HDR is Little less for starting. How to connect to a PC and how to start programming?

With best regards

I agree, would not hurt to put it in the description that a power module is required.

We will look into making this clearer. Thanks for the feedback and sorry for any inconvenience.
