Add Radxa Taco - the successor of the ROCK Pi SATA HAT(Penta SATA CM4 carrier board)

I've been following this repository for quite long time. As a Raspberry Pi fan, we've been working on the Radxa Taco for a while, which is an ultimate CM4 carrier board designed for nas/server/router applications. The ideas is based on the Quad SATA HAT for the Raspberry Pi 4 and go further beyond it. The Radxa Taco has the following features:

  • Use asm1806 pcie switch
  • Dual ethernet, one 1000M from CM4, one 2.5G rtk8125b to pcie switch
  • 5x SATA via JMB585 to pcie switch
  • 1x M.2 M key NVMe to pcie switch
  • 1x PCIe M.2 WiFi module, support Intel AX200
  • 10P header for Top Board with OLED and button
  • RTC/USB 2/uSD card

The case is working on...

The Radxa CM3 RK3566 PCIe support:

  • Support MSI with Per-Vector Masking (PVM) and 32 multiple MSI
  • Support MSI-X with Per-Vector Masking (PVM) and 64 MSI-X table size

@vebmaster

The new hw revision changes to two m.2. This board is only available in small sample quantity at the moment.

Application for OpenHD air unit

Hello,

Our community is interested in your cm as a drop-in replacement for the rpi cm4 with various carrier boards.

I myself have a lot of experience with the rockchip platform (RV1126) and would love to contribute by adding sw support for the rpi cam (and more) on radxca cm3.

However, I cannot find any information on the compability of radxca cm3 and MIPI-CSI - does it route out the MIPI-CSI lanes equivalent to the CM4 such that a standart RPI cam can be connected to the RPI CM4 dev board ? If so, there is a lot of potential for our specific use case.

@Consti10 please send me an email with your shipping address: [email protected] , the samples are out soon.

Test Radxa Taco 5x SATA NAS with 2.5G and 1G Ethernet

See original issue: https://github.com/geerlingguy/raspberry-pi-pcie-devices/issues/202

DSC03256 (1)

I have a Taco (well, the Penta main board that goes inside) and would like to do some testing on it; run some benchmarks, test compiling ZFS, etc.

Things to test:

  • Power consumption (at wall, using Kill-A-Watt) at idle with 5 SATA drives + NVMe, and running benches over network
  • Network performance (single port, 2.5G)
  • NVMe performance (single drive)
  • SATA performance (single drive)
  • SATA performance (5-drive RAID0)
  • SATA performance (5-drive RAID5)
  • SATA performance (5-drive ZFS RAIDZ1)

yeah, this is the issue we did not consider for the first version. Now for the new hw revision, we added a small button for the usbboot.

Add CurryPi CM4 Cluster Board

The CurryPi CM4 Cluster board was hinted at in @aep's Twitter post:

FA72rZcXoAIB8qQ

It's a 4-node CM4 cluster board. It looks like each Pi gets an M.2 NVMe slot, and each node gets its own network jack on the rear. Looking at the project's GitHub repository, it seems like there is some active development and improvements to the board's power management are underway.

Yeah, Curry Pi is also applying the Radxa CM3 for the project. The additional SATA will be the benefit. Let's see how it goes.

Application for the sataPi project

sataPi is a carrier board for rpi CM4 or compatible boards that can be inserted into a 3.5" hdd bay in a pc case , and it will use a molex / sata power connector to be able to get its power.

If you have any questions about , please feel free to ask

Hi, @bfgelectronics

I have some cool idea for you since your project is inside a PC case. We can build a SATA bridge for the PC, when the PC is powered on, the SATA drive is access from the PC motherboard, when the PC is powered off, the SATA drive can be remote accessed from the network. This is useful when people is away from home but need to access the disk on their PC anytime(even the PC is powered off).

@mjeshurun @bydorfler we have the 4x PCIe switch for the CM4, which are used as following:

  • 1x for 2.5 GbE
  • 1x for 5x SATA
  • 1x for NVMe
  • 1x for WiFi 6

which do you think not important and want to replace? The idea was to build a NAS with NVMe as cache and fast WiFi streaming.

linux-headers-4.4.143-57 contains x86_64 fixdep binary

I'm trying to build a kernel module (WireGuard via DKMS) on ROCK Pi S with linux-headers-4.4.143-57-rockchip-g4b8d0571d76e headers package but the build fails as the contained fixdep binary is for x86_64 instead of aarch64:

[email protected]:/usr/src/linux-headers-4.4.143-57-rockchip-g4b8d0571d76e# file scripts/basic/fixdep
scripts/basic/fixdep: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2, for GNU/Linux 3.2.0, BuildID[sha1]=34ad80d3b402859d4bf7f9340b69625a9186246e, not stripped

I guess this is due to cross-compiling the kernel/headers on an x86_64 machine.

We've ordered an ARM server, please wait for our new native build. Currently it takes too long to compile on ROCK Pi.
