Pierre, my suggestion is to forget about the CHIP.  CPU aside it's power management scheme is extremely poorly implemented, resulting in random uncontrolled shutdowns and subsequent data corruption, especially if you're using the USB port.  All this is well documented on their forum (along with the lack of response from the company).   It is of course out of production now, perhaps to be replaced by a new design that has been promised for months but with no response to requests for updated information.    An overview of their bulletin board system will show that it's devolved to a place for venting frustration, complaining,  and threats against the company.    Find a convenient drawer to store your CHIP in and move to a decent SBC.
