ARM development board recommendation

Hi,

I'm getting started with Linux embedded development and i'm looking for my first board. The minimum requirements are:

- ARM CPU

- Linux support (mainline without 3rd party patches)

- U-Boot support (without 3rd party patches)

- JTAG port

- Ethernet

- 1 or more serial ports

- price tag

Hi I'm using currently an arm board by technologic (ts7300), several models in different price categories. There is a backdraw: it's a 2.4 kernel, but there is a rtai variant available for free. If you've a lot of time you could create your own 2.6kernel, which I did for board with another processor type. We are currently designing a fpga extension board for some telemetry tests with it. taco

You could try the AVR32 Gateway at $69... Linux 2.6.21.1 has AVR32 support U-Boot has AVR32 support.

Thanks for your suggestion. I fear right now i don't have the skills to write a port for 2.6, maybe this could be a nice task in the future after having gained some experience on a out-of-the box supported board

I already had a look at it after reading its announcement on linuxdevices.com. It's one of my candidates if i don't find a suitable ARM board.

Thanks

Thanks. That comes up OK.

Some day, I'd hope to find one or more manufacturers of boards for a wide variety of architectures (including ARM, MIPS, PPC, and in both endians) for a variety of form factors to also include ITX and [u]ATX.
