“Framework has created a really slick, fully user servicable, laptop and have recently started selling the mainboard as a SBC for general use. To better support folks who may want to integrate it into their projects, they are also releasing technical documentation including pinouts, cad models and other resources. As they were preparing this documentation release, they emailed me to see if I’d be interested in a collaboration of sorts. They would provide one of their laptops and some additional modules for me to build something unique with the only condition being that I released the designs for public use. So here we are!”
“The mainboard is a great little unit, being a full Intel based system on a single board with great storage and memory expansion, decent on-board graphics and full power management. Since it was designed to fit into the laptop first and foremost, some of the connectors are fairly specialized, but with the pinouts available there are a lot of opportunities for expansion. The board also has four standard USB-C ports which provide many possibilities without even trying any of the other on-board connectors. “
