Where did you get that info? eCos is free. The
port in the bugzilla database is free too, though
not entirely stable.

Some people do ports professionally, but they
charge more than $2000.

So I wonder who you got that from price from.




An Engineer's Guide to the LPC2100 Series

I was thinking of running eCOS on LPC micros.
However the port is not ready yet, and when it will be it will cost
~$2000. (My knowledge of eCOS at the moment is minimal.)
I need a system to interface to IP cameras on ethernet, read and
decompress video data and convert to analog monitor (composite
video). Does anyone know of an inexpensive SBC for the project ?
Would the LPC2214 based system be good enough to handle it?
(I need low power consumption as well)

the people from http://www.ecoscentric.com/ecos/ecospro.shtml gave me
that info
If it's free, does the LPC port exist and if yes, where can I get it ?

Hi Jan,
 
We are currently adding eCOS debug support to our debugger and this will be available next month. To find the LPC eCOS port look at:
 
http://bugs.ecos.sourceware.org/show_bug.cgi?id00068
 
 
For eCOS references:
 
http://www.informit.com/content/downloads/perens/0130354732.pdf
http://authors.phptr.com/massa/
http://sources.redhat.com/ecos/
 
 
In particular, the first link is an excellent book on all things eCOS.

I've looked at eCOS but as a non professional programmer, I have not
gotten beyond the broken congigurator generator. Why isn't there a
generic ARM port simplified with a BSP?
