I'd appreciate if someone could answer a few questions below: If you reply by email, REMOVE "SPAMNOMORE" in capital letters repeated in my address twice (edit address manually)!!
We ordered "Xilinx Virtex-Pro II" development kit, your answers will NOT change buying decisions - it?s already here, we need to know:
- Is it possible to put either Linux or Nucleus RTOS into this chip memory, to my knowledge your chip includes two PowerPC's and we intend to use it as a host? Note we need to know if either OS can be loaded, not both, we will experiment with Linux and then Nucleus RTOS (Nucleus RTOS is Realtime Operating System from AcceleratedTechnology/MentorGraphics Corporation, for Xilinx FPGA's embedded design).
- If yes, when Linux or Nucleus RTOS is loaded, will we get communications stack and drivers for IEEE 802.11 in ad-hoc mode (this as any EE Engineer knows is a wireless LAN standard)?
- If yes, then we'll purchase a standard IEEE 802.11 card, can this card be plugged into your development kit port? From what I gathered from my professor, he intends to plug this card into your "serial port", but seems strange to me.
- Maybe you can suggest additional Xilinx products to use in our IEEE
VirtexPro II development kit is already here and I was asked to research the above information to start design.
Thanks for your time.
