Maybe somebody else on the list will be interested in this kickstarter
I've signed up for. It is like a Raspberry Pi on steroids (or whatever
Lance was taking):
* Zynq-7010 Dual-core ARM A9 CPU
o ARM CPU
o FPGA Programmable logic equivalent to 430k ASIC gates, (peak of
74 GMACs within the Zynq proc).
* Epiphany Multicore Accelerator (16 or 64 cores)
<http://www.adapteva.com/products/silicon-devices/> giving 24GFLOPS
of floating point for the small model, 90GFLOPS for the big one.
* 1GB RAM
* MicroSD Card
* USB 2.0 (two)
* Two general purpose expansion connectors
* Ethernet 10/100/1000
* HDMI connection
* Creditcard sized
* Runs on 5W
* Ships with Ubuntu OS
* Ships with free open source Epiphany development tools that include
C compiler, multicore debugger, Eclipse IDE, OpenCL SDK/compiler,
and run time libraries.
* Dimensions are 3.4'' x 2.1''
Even if your don't need the floating point or FPGA logic, a dual core
ARM board with Gigabit Ethernet and a heap of programmable logic for $99
is pretty good.
PS. What does everybody think of Raspberry Pi's drivers being released
under a FOSS license? Delivery is now pretty good - I got the new 512MB
version from Element 14 in 3 days.
