moin,

just in case anyone is interested: the OpenBrick-ng seem to be
made by Nagasaki as "Nagasaki MiniPC MS-2600-4COM"

http://www.nagasaki.com.tw/02pd/minipc_2600_4com.html

they contain a nagasaki embedded board "NASA-6822VLLA" (i verified
this on an actual openbrick-ng. the board says "nasa-6822".)

specs: http://www.nagasaki.com.tw/6-PTF/NA-6822.pdf
user manual:
http://www.nagasaki.com.tw/7-User's%20Manual/embedded/NASA-6822.pdf

these documents contain a little more interesting and clear information
than the page openbrick-ng ordering page.

like the fact that there are daughterboards for a compact flash slot,
a pcmcia slot and a hard-disk bay or even a GPS module are available
or that the system has an internal IDE connector. or that "flash disk"
means DOMs (Disk On Module) which are ide-compatible flash disks
(rather than compact flash modules)." power supplies for different
settings like cars/boats etc are also available.


nagasaki also has distributors all around the world...



tty, axel

but they are silent.

i found the system by clicking around on nagasakis website.
later i saw that the openbrick-ng even had a small label
"MS-2600" on the bottom.

Hi,

OpenBrick NG is the result of a long term collaboration between Nexedi and
Nagasaki (Taiwan) which started in 2002 and was based on the input of the
OpenBrick community:

http://www.openbrick.org/wiki/ng/FrontPage

So, Nagasaki is an OEM/ODM for Nexed. Nexedi is also a Nagasaki distributor
in Europe.

Storever, a Nexedi business unit, concentrates on providing access to
OpenBrick NG hardware mostly in Europe without the burden of hardware
import from Taiwan. (we are the ones who get fined by the customs from time
to time)

Based on OpenBrick Community input, Nexedi has developped for the OpenBrick
line a set of GPL software which allows for automatic production of
embedded Linux distributions: umigumi

http://www.umigumi.org

Umigumi is used to produce custom applications based on OpenBrick NG: IP TV
broadcast, IPradio player, H323 VPN, etc.

JPS.

ah, thanks. thats quite interesting.

this sort of clarifies the "open" in openbrick :)

i really like those systems.

i think the webpage (http://www.storever.com/product/openbrick/openbrick-ng)
could (and should) be a little better, though.

geeks usually like to get as much information as possible about a system
before they decide. insufficient information tends to look like you
have something to hide.

for example you should clarify the term "flash disks" and mention that
the system has an internal IDE connector. (you mean the DiskOnModules
made by nagasaki, right? http://www.nagasaki.com.tw/1-products/DOM.htm
if yes, the terms "USB 2.0 Flash Disk" and "usb compact flash" are plain
wrong. DOMs are neither compact flash, nor are they USB. they are
ide-compatible flash-disks. "USB 2.0 Flash Disk" sounds like a regular
usb memory stick, "usb compact flash" sounds like the system has an internal
compact flash slot that is attached to the system via usb.)


the option boards (hdd slot, pcmcia & CF slot, gps module) should also
be mentionend (if you offer them). also the power supplies for cars
and boats should be very interesting for people who consider
buying it.

i'd also offer the two PDFs for download that are available from
nagsaki.

another point i'd consider very important would be a photo of inside of the
the open system.
just like via does here with their epia boards:
Loading Image...


390E is not exactly cheap for an embedded system of that type. but the
openbrick does offer a lot for that money, and i would consider it a
fair price, given all the features and the way it is built.

the thing is, if people cannot see how nice the system is, they will mainly
look at the basic specs you provide and at the price.

so i'd say, the more information, the better...


anyway, thanks for a very nice system. i think our openbricks will
work very well.


tty, axel

Yes this are the same PCs.

I ordered 2 from Nexedi; then three MS-2600 through "U.S.A Distributor -
Nagasaki IPC Technology" and i was delivered in time (about 1400 $USD
for 3 x MS 2600, including shipping cost)

Please tell us if you can buy it at a good price from German or Benelux
or French Nagasaki reseller.
