In case you missed the latest update, Elimo designed a small, powerful Linux System-on-Module, designed for low cost and fast system integration. It’s FOSS and OSHW!
We have buildroot working and booting, and we are in the process of adding support for all peripherals and mainlining it.

These patches are mostly about and generally adding support for Ethernet, serial1, putting the module and carrier board
on the radar.
As a side effect of the review on the patchset, they also introduce some minor tidy up in the
strings for S3 based designs, including the Pine64 Pinecube.
Also, this adds UART1 support to the dts for the Allwinner V3, and therefore the S3.
What this means for us
As you can imagine, the patchset being in the mainline kernel means that our buildroot repo does not need the patches anymore, and we can directly bring in kernel 5.11. You can find the commit doing exactly that on our repo here.
The next steps will be adding support for the audio codec and the Bluetooth radio on the module.
