@diegor @mntmn @scops 40W is peak power when you push it strong :) Cortex-A72 are not made for continual operation as they will burn, this is why they always are combined with A53, You can bet this SOC may consume nothing if everything is shutdown and only Cortex-M4F checks from time to time :) the performance always come with a price.
We started the most complex design of Open Source Hardware Linux Computer with iMX8QuadMax SOC, to be completed with KiCAD and here are the details: https://olimex.wordpress.com/2020/07/07/the-work-on-our-most-complex-open-source-hardware-linux-board-started-meet-the-tukhla-imx8quadmax-soc-based-board-to-be-designed-with-kicad/ #oshw #linux #arm #imx8 #automotive #industrial #kicad #nxpsemiconductors
I'm concerned about long term consumer data storage options.
Hard drives are dying a slow death - manufacturers have been shutting down HDD factories for years now and the trend is continuing. Once they are gone we will have to switch to SSD.
But SSD cannot be trusted to keep data long term - they slowly lose data unless the cells are refreshed every now and then. You can't put one in a drawer and forget about it for 5 to 10 years without risking data loss.
Cloud storage cannot be trusted long term - accounts close, terms change, things happen. It's someone else's computer.
Optical media and consumer tape drives are pretty much dead.
What's left? I guess I should start printing my photos instead.
