StandAlone System


I am working for target board which has a display, I need to develop StandAlone system for this target board. As I am new to the requirements of this concept, I would request to have some preliminary ideas 'How to start developing a StandAlone Device" for this target which boots and does something atleast without having any support either through NFS to the target board or through any means from the Linux server. Normally this target has been developed in conventional way which boots and runs through NFS with the help of Linux server.

Any clue ?

What he posted are very good links for getting into the embended world. There is also mention to a book. It's hard to find a link that answers exactly what you are asking..
Here's another one:

Imageon? isn't it the one in a Sharp Zaurus? It is running linux I think so zaurus might be a good thing to look.
look for uclinux , cross-compiling,..

The Sharp Zaurus Uses the Intel StrongArm CPU.
the SL-5500 was 266 MHZ the SL-6000 is 400 Mhz
(I sold my 5500 to buy the 6000 SWEET !!)

All the info I could find, looked to me like the imageon is a companion mulitimedia chip for embedded systems and I'm thinking theres also a CPU in there.. but I'm no embedded systems expert by any stretch of the imagination.

Nor was I able to locate anything specifically on the imageon and Linux.
so generic embedded Linux book links was the best I could suggest.

Not like you were very forthcoming in the application of the chip..
generic info breeds generic responses.. sorry but that's how things go

Whereas the target board is specified in like manner therefore development should proceed as specified.

yep you are right the SL-C860 Does have an imageon chip along side it's 400 MHz PXA255 XScale processor.

sweet !!

I sure wish Sharp hadn't pulled out of the US PDA market.
My zaurus can do more than any palm or win based PDA I've ever played with.

Few years ago, I had to choose a pda for a present and the Zaurus was out of the French market. This really got me mad. So I had to choose a palm (I would never have bought a winsomething)


I'm thinking of putting linux on it, so beware!!
