Thank yo Sylvain for the heads up about this option.
I checked out the site and saw that it was Out of Stock.
I contacted Jacob at Androda about them and this was his response.
Sylvain is right about eMate upgrade projects hanging around and
disappearing. I worked with Stephen Arsenault a bit on his eMate project
<https://github.com/Stephen-Arsenault/eMate-Open-Expansion>, and his
selected RAM chips didn't seem to work properly. Fortunately, my design
<https://github.com/androda/eMate-Expansion> is functional.
Currently my site says out of stock - but that's only because more of them
have not been assembled. I have parts in stock to make several more of
both types. If there is substantial interest (10+ modules) then parts will
need to be ordered.
In keeping with my liking of eMates, I also stock eMate display cables
<https://androda.work/product/emate-300-screen-flex-cable/> for those that
have been eaten by the hinge.
As my site notes, there has been illness going around in my family and
spare time has been sparse. These are on my list of things to make when
spare time normalizes.
