I’m working with an RSB-4810 that my customer has selected to use for an update to their platform. I’m having a rather difficult time getting started with the board I’ve received. I have a couple of questions to start.
First, the box I received only has the board in it, no power supply or documentation. From the user guide online I found online (RSB-4810 user guide - ESS-WIKI) it looks like it is 12VDC, but there’s no information on Amperage. I also don’t see the connector type listed anywhere. I’m a bit hesitant to plug anything into it without knowing a bit more so I can use an appropriate connector and power supply.
Second, I’m hoping to find either a Linux image or source repository so I can build an image myself. No where I’ve looked seems to have an image or source repository. The user guide I linked above has some spots in it where it looks like there should be a link to something, but I do not see a link. I’ve also spent some time on the Advantech github (ADVANTECH-Corp · GitHub) trying to locate a likely candidate I could use, but I can’t find that anything on there officially supports the RSB-4810. So, I’m hoping someone can point me at a Linux image or repository for the RSB-4810.
Third, once I get an image and can power the board, I don’t see anything in the user guide that indicates how I connect to the board to push an image to it. Do I use COM1? COM2? Some other port? I do see that the user guide has screenshots with the RKDevTool v2.81 for flashing images. I assume that is the tool from Rockchip that I found with a quick Google search of the name (this forum won’t let me include more than two links in a post so I can’t link it directly). Or maybe my assumption about connecting directly to the board itself to flash the image is incorrect and I really need to flash the image to an SD card directly using the RKDevTool and then finish the installation using that? I’m unsure because I can’t find this information anywhere.
Any support you can provide would be appreciated! Thank you!
