    M2-ATX HV susceptible to RF ??

    My VoomPC-2 with M2-ATX HV power supply shuts down whenever there's just a little bit of RF near it. Transmitting with a 100mW handheld on 145MHz is enough to initiate a shutdown. A RG-400 coax cable...

    Probably not good. But maybe there is still some surface left to integrate a silicon solar cell, just enough to power the circuit. :)

    There's a Xenarch 702 that just came out, supposedly with 1000 nits brightness. The few pictures I saw showed considerable glare so not sure how well it would work in a carPC environment

    Most of these are also resolution limited. The Garmins are 400x234 or so, not even VGA.

    Not according to Atmel's spec. You can not set the port to 0, because it's an input, not an output. As input, the only options are Hi-Z or Pull-up.

    The jumper block won't work this way. In your software you can define the AVR input pins as Hi-Z or with pull-ups. When you define them Hi-Z, they will be floating when no jumper is present, and...
