Recently, I've been wanting to buy a new audio player for my car, but uni has left me pretty broke. That's when I had an idea - why not make one using a Raspberry Pi? I've got plenty of programming experience, so writing the media player software would be easy as pi. However, I've never written an ASIC. A quick google search only leads me to people selling bitcoin miners, so it looks like it isn't impossible to have one as an ASIC machine. A couple questions:
- I've never programmed an ASIC machine. How would I overwrite the raspberry pi OS to load up my media player software on boot up rather than raspberry pi OS? Or would I simply have the raspberry pi OS autorun the software after the OS has been loaded?
- Since it will be attached to my car, it's going to power on/off with my car. Isn't this dangerous? Would I run the risk of ruining the board/corrupting the OS?
