I bought a board
with a NXP LPC1768 (512kB flash, 64kB SRAM) on it. It comes with uC-II OS on it, I can easily program and debug it with an IDE from Keil but everything is done on Windows.
I've been playing with 8-bit microcontrollers for a while now but I'd like to start working with an Embedded OS on a smarter 32-bit chip like LPC1768. Since I use almost exclusively Linux on my computer, I'd prefer working with an embedded Linux rather than uC-II.
The first problem is if there is any linux embedded variation that fits into that space and leaves some space for the applications. I searched on the net but the majority require at least a few MB flash.
The second problem is that I don't know where to start from. I guess first of all I should burn a bootloader then compile and burn the kernel and the custom application(s).
Does anyone know of a good start guide?
Even better, has anyone tried to get linux work on an NXP LPC?
I'd appreciate any kind of help.
