This is a USB based boot utility for OMAP4 Platform. And allows you to boot OMAP4 platform over USB interface.
Usage: ./usbboot ./aboot.bin u-boot.bin
where: usbboot is the PC side utility listening on USB bus for asic-id from omap
aboot.bin is the second-stage loader getting loaded to internal sram of omap
The second-stage loader loads u-boot.bin to external ddr
(u-boot.bin can be replaced by any binary that one wishes to execute from ddr)
Porting Arch Linux to the PandaBoard, a continuation of what's already done over at PlugApps - we have ported Arch Linux to Marvell's Sheeva platform, and the Pandaboard is a much more powerful platform.
The goal of this project is to port Qi bootloader to the PandaBoard. Qi is a tiny, fast, "no frills" bootloader for ARM architectures. It permits direct loading of Linux kernel without intervention of u-boot. Its aim is to stay at the minimum needed to load and boot Linux kernel (without boot-menus or additional peripheral init).
At the moment there are Qi's versions for Samsung s3c* and omap3 (in a different branch) but there is no omap4 version. This project will try to develop and maintain a working version for omap4.
The goal of this project is to develop and build an expansion board for the PandaBoard based on FPGA technology.
An FPGA allows to build a very flexible expansion for an ARM based SoC. It's high count of programmable I/O pins combined with the option to create custom hardware blocks inside the configurable logic offer numerous possibilities.
The aim of the project is to utilize opensource tools and integrate them into a all in one Combo Box for domestic day to day purpose.
Following are the applications currently planned on this.
1) Home Network Gateway :- To provide wireless ( May be Wired access ) Internet access to all Internet devices at home.
2) Provide Advanced Routing and Fail over Internet along with Traffic Shaping and Restricted Internet access for the Kids.
3) Work as a VPN server so that users can connect from anywhere to Home Network
Neuvoo is a project to optimize and apply Gentoo for use on embedded devices. We emphasize the ARMv7a architecture and create a multitude of embedded tools and ebuilds for new and advanced Linux users. We are completely compatible with the Gentoo structure and provide more advanced stages for installation on ARMv7a devices.
