Re: IDEA: ARM stamp SBC ?
Hi,

thought I would post another real answer to the original question, not
some phantasy posting about  1Mio gates FPGA.
Have a look here:

What do you mean by phantasy?  There are actual soft ARM cores in 200K,
PPC cores in 300K FPGAs.  What do you think the micro manufacturers use
for prototypes?

1M gates FPGA is mid-range.  5M gates can be yours, if you send us a
cashier check.

These are also nice. Thank you!

I agree, there seems to be tendency to overkill. The whole ARM core is
30k transistors; 1mil gates FPGA for $hundreed(s) just to immitate ARM
core for 5 bucks ... nonsense

Anyone selling an ASIC, something like AT91SAMX but bundled with PHY ?

Impossible to do it in 30k.  Unreasonable to buy FPGA with less than
200k. You are the one asking for FPGA.  Have you find any ARM with FPGA
for less than $100?  You are not only asking for ARM, but ethernet,
Sdram, CF and custom FPGA gates.

Have you guys really look into the FPGA market?
