Astrobar RAM maximum Capacity? Can it be upgraded???
« on: January 14, 2018, 05:42:14 am »
Hi,

    I have as many other astronomers in this forum, some equipment that requires many software and drivers to operate.
   
    Astrobar only has 2Gb of RAM to run the Win10 Operating System, plus all the software and drivers.

    One of my present setups, run:
  • MaxPilot (or Voyager recently testing)
  • The SkyX
  • PHD2
  • FocusMax
  • ASCOM drivers for:
    • CDD camera with 16200 ship including integrated external Filter wheel
    • guiding CCD
    • SX AO
    • Focuser Controller
    • Dew Controller
    • Mount

   Is the Astrobar able to handle all the above SW and drivers (including 6 USB, which are 2 USB/Serial connections)?

   Can the Astrobar motherboard RAM be upgraded?
   Some of this tiny CPU boards do have a bus connector for future upgrades, who knows QHY could plan a memory upgrade for it.
   
Regards,
Joao Vaz Martins

Hello,

       The ASTROBAR using the ATOM Z3735 and it is only support 2GB DDR memory by the CPU. So it can not add more RAM on that.
