Can we get a circuit description and schematic of the Joule Compute Module so we can extend capabilities beyond what Microsoft is going to disclose. We have the capability to write drivers for Windows 10. I suspect that Windows 10 IoT has same install and load mechanisms as other Windows Drivers. Microsoft is not forth coming with details and pulling teeth is not my forte. We would be pleased to sign an NDA for access to a circuit description and schematic of the Joule compute module, so we can proceed with our development plans.
Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Joule Platform.
We'll be investigating and as soon as we find useful information, we let you know, however, we would like to know if you are looking for a schematic similar to this one: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-joule-expansion-board-schematic Intel® Joule™ Expansion Board Schematic.
If you have another question, please, let us know.
Yes a regular schematic of the module would be great (especially if it was a Cadence schematic, but a PDF would be fine). We really only need it as a reference.
It would be nice to have a full schematic, but at least a detailed block diagram with data/address/interrupt mapping of hardware devices, so that we can develop low lever drivers (Ring-0) drivers. It will take Microsoft a long time (if ever) to release details of full support for all hardware devices supported on the module. We are developing our own expansion board with our needed hardware support. This is not a hobby application, but a full production development. It would also be nice to have an FAE that we could work with on this development effort.
Thank you in advance for your assistance Yermi.
