    Hi,

    I have an InfoTMIC based pcb , driven by a 12 volt power supply that I am suspecting is a custom made infotmic tablet. It has 2 x USB ports as well as an SD card slot.
    If I plug in a pendrive or sd card with a .mov/.avi file it the board will play the file on a screen connected to the vga out. If I power up the board with nothing but the vga connected it gives me a message "Please insert USB or SD Card" and the number "1.0.5" at the top of the screen.

    The board has 1 gig of DDR2 ram, 4 gigs of nand flash, a Chrontel chip for hdmi but the hdmi connector is not soldered on but I suspect it works and has an Infotmic IMAPx210 BM1-80 chip as the cpu? as well as 64 megs of parallel flash memory. It also has a RS232 port which replies in Chines/Japanese/Korean when set to unicode but does not translate to anything meaningful.

    The numbers on the board are EX-75-545G and 20112811_V1.0 and M1301IMAPX210. There are a few more that refer to the Nand and Nor flash

    If anyone can help me identify the board and also help with finding out which software is currently running I would really appreciate it. What I would like to do is upgrade the firmware driving the board to see what else the board can do.

    Many thanks!

    P.S I have tried to upload pictures but the upload always fails. I will try again and see if i can get it to work soon.

    After a lot of scratching on the internet it seems that this board could also be a type of media board, similar to the Patriot Box Office but I cannot find any further information on it. The PBO uses a Realtek chip where this board uses an IMAPx210 by Infotm.

    The numbering on the board however is very similar to the PBO's. Any help would be appreciated :D

    I can cancel the boot by pressing any key but would like to know if I can make a bootable sd card and run a linux version on the board. If someone could tell me which linux version it would be great.

    Well, it seems to be running Linux of some sort already...
    Have you connected a monitor to it 2c if the display has anything on it?

    Yes I have, from the VGA output with no USB plugged in it shows the message "Please insert USB or SD Card" and the number "1.0.5" and stay there. I have been messing around and managed to get into a U-Boot running on the board and it comes up with the following from a ls command:

    / # ls
    billboard etc lost+found proc Settings usr
    bin home media root srv var
    boot lib mnt sbin sys xx
    dev linuxrc opt sbt_app tmp

    Also did a ls -R and it dumped a couple of thousand lines. I am now thinking this is a patriot PBO running on an Infotmic IMAPx200 chip that was never released. Going to continue messing with it to see what else is in there.

    Nope, unfortunately not. Cannot find anyone else on the web who has one either.

    Hi,
    Setup your console( Terminal) to VT100/200/220 and you will see correct info.
    Connect USB keyboard and VGA monitor and console and you will be able to see root.
    I have the same board and can do with it what I want
    Thanks

    If you could, please reply to this with a step by step procedure. I would appreciate a little more details to help me find a use for this board. Thank you.

    I know this thread is ancient, but wondering if you were ever able to make headway getting in to it. I'm a slot machine service technician, and Bally uses these in their machines to loop short videos on the "topper" monitors... The game.name/logo and whatever motions etc. We have them go bad often, and I'm looking to see if there may be a way to reflash them if there isn't a hardware failure.
    Thanks
