New ARM7/uClinux evaluation kit

Muxaul J. Lai writes "Wiscore Inc. (Taipei, Taiwan) announced an ARM7TDMI evaluation kit that includes a uClinux operating system. Previously available exclusively in Taiwan, the "NET-Start!" kit is intended for use by system developers, instructors, and students, the company said.

According to Wiscore, the hardware/software kit features a single-board computer based on a 50 MHz Samsung S3C4510B (ARM7TDMI) system-on-chip processor, with uClinux preinstalled. Both binaries and sources for the uClinux (with uClibc) OS are included, providing the ability to easily tailor the system to fit specific requirements, Wiscore said. Other features of the hardware include 16MB SDRAM, 2MB Flash memory, 10/100 Base-T Ethernet interface (RJ-45), dual RS232 serial ports, I/O expansion interface (wich can be used to add an additional Ethernet interface daughter board), JTAG port, real time clock, watchdog timer, 7-segment display, programmable LEDs, DIP switch inputs, and push buttons. Required power and interface cables, power supply, software, and documentation are also included."
