Linux on ARMWe've added new installation instructions, a root filesystem, and packages to bring support to Olimex's OLinuXino board. This device is based on the Freescale i.MX233 SoC at 454MHz with 64MB RAM, 10/100mbit ethernet, audio in/out, and NTSC or PAL composite video out. It also provides a wealth of connectivity easily accessible over standard connectors which should inspire those looking for a device to run home automation or robotics to name a couple applications.

The device is fully open source hardware under a Creative Commons license, with all of the CAD and schematics available with no restrictions on personal or commercial usage.

The board provides additional connectivity including:

  • TV PAL/NTSC video output
  • Stereo Audio input and output
  • Two buttons
  • UEXT connector for connection to peripheral modules via I2C/SPI
  • 40 pin connector for GPIO and other signals
