beagleboard

While I have your Attention, one of the most interesting ARM projects at the moment: beagleboard . There is _huge_ variety of ARM developer boards available, but this one has a couple of really interesting bits
  • Powered by OMAP 3530, a 600MHz ARM Cortex A8 + kitchen sink chip. Most boards are either expensive or have a "bottom-of-line" cpu.
  • Didn't I complain that TI isn't open enough? Well, since then TI now has released thousands of pages documentation for OMAP3, made omap 35xx available or purchase for anyone, and is even working to get DSP and 3D bits of OMAP3 available. And they go further - beagleboard documentation (link at bottom of elinux wikipage for boeagleboard) has everything including schematics.
