Linux and Android development board

Started by ljuel January 12, 2011
Hi

I'm going to develop a new product which should be based on embedded linux. For this purpose I need to choose a development board but I don't know which. I attend to be ARM926 based, with pre-build of linux.

Could anyone has some experience with this and support me with links and advices.

Regards,
Ljupco.

What exactly are you developing? If you are developing another Android
phone/pad, you are probably going to need an arméeof engineers.

Embedded Artists has ported Android to their LPC3250 Developer's Kit which has an ARM926EJ-S and supports Linux. There is a video here:

http://www.embeddedartists.com

and more detail here:

We do not have any experience with the use of that EA board but we have been happy with their Quickstart, Educational and Prototype boards.

Hello Ljupco – have a look at LPC3250 solution from NXP

Low cost boards (250 ... 300euros) available from www.embeddedartists.com (Sweden).
Their boards work fine ... http://www.embeddedartists.com/products/kits/

Best regards,

Hi,

For this purpose (running embedded Linux) there are some cheaper
alternatives.

You can have a look at www.beagleboard.org (based on TI's OMAP3530
processor) it cost about $150.

A similar board with a newer processor is at www.pandaboard.org (based
on TI's OMAP4430 processor) costs about $180.

Both boards supports several Linux distributions like Angstrom, Ubuntu,
Debian. Android is also supported on these boards.

Both TI and Keil/ARM has development tools for these platforms although
they are quite expensive.
Open source development tools are also available. (Eclipse + GCC).

Best regards,
Laszlo

PS: OMAP processors have ARM Cortex-A8 or dual ARM Cortex-A9 cores
inside together with a DSP and a graphics accelerator.
