Openmoko Beagle/Panda Hybrid

Openmoko Beagle/Panda Hybrid

Openmoko Beagle/Panda Hybrid (GTA04A1)

News: We have been choosen by the PandaBoard Early Adopter Program and will receive a PandaBoard (OMAP4 / ARM Cortex A9) board soon.

The Openmoko Beagle/Panda Hybrid is a PCB to connect an Openmoko Freerunner display (TD028TTEC1) through some connectors with a Beagle or Panda Board. It became the basis for a new Openmoko device and can therefore also be referenced as "GTA04A1".


Please go to the specific sub-projects

  1. U-Boot for OMB
  2. Kernel for OMB
  3. Debian Lenny for OMB

We encourage to port/configure Android, Angstrom, QtMoko, SHR, and other distributions.

What it is good for

  • experimenting with touchscreen and new user interfaces on Beagleboard
  • learn how the OMAP3530/OMAP4430 design works
  • make it a mobile application development platform by adding a battery pack and a UMTS usb stick
  • investigate how an Openmoko with UMTS and OMAP3530/OMAP4430 feels (not from haptics but screen operation and UMTS speed)
  • porting SHR, QtMoko, Angstrom, Android, etc. to ARM-Cortex A8/A9, NEON


  • PCB that fits into Freerunner case (top cover and middle part after cutting a hole)
  • works also outside of a case
  • Toppoly LCM interface (same display as used in the Freerunner - otherwise it would not fit into the case)
  • TSC2007 touch screen controller
  • Microphone
  • Earset and Speaker connector (for Freerunner case)
  • 2 buttons (AUX and Power)
  • 2 dual color LEDs (in the AUX and Power buttons)
  • vibracall driver
  • headset jack to connect microphone, earset and speaker
