I want to do some vision recogition experiments using an ordinary USB webcam (640x480pixels should be more than sufficient) on eCos. Obviously, there are no drivers for eCos so I'll have to write my own. Does anyone know if there are USB webcams out there for which the transmitted USB packets are documented?

Hi, I am thinking about putting either eCos or ucOS into the just released Philips ARM7 LPC21xx chip. It has something like 16kB of RAM, 128kB (or 256kB depending on the part) of FLASH on-chip, with no external memory bus. Before going ahead, I would like to have a sanity check: can the porting of eCos or ucOS be done with the resources? It aims to be my hobby project. Just want to try...

Hello, I just went through compiling eCos for Falcom x35-xxl-si on SuSE Linux 10, and I thought to share the experience in the hopes to save some time for someone else. SuSE Linux 10 has gcc 4.x as the native compiler, which apparently was a major source of trouble in compiling the toolchain. I used the eCos online documentation as the primary reference for building the toolchain:...

Hi there, Anybody have experience in implementing an eCos TCP/IP stack on an ARM? Is a footprint of 200k program memory and 120k data memory reasonable? Seems a little high to me. Without too much eCos experience, I might have expected about half the program memory and 1/4 the data memory. -- Alf Katz alfkatz@remove.the.obvious.ieee.org

We have a project that demands IP connectivity and little bit of simple database stuff that will take about a megabyte of memory. For this project, something like eCos seems like a logical solution as it seems to have all the functionality without having the footprint and MMU requirements that Linux has. However, I've never used it before so need a little help in evaluating it against other...
