Linux Embedded

Everyone talks about embedded nowadays, and in a country like India where Mobile Service industry has reached nook and corner of the country , its really a Hot Cake! Sharing and Learning is a part of everyone's lives but Open Source has marked its values and redefined the word "sharing". Recently I had been to an amazing event in Bangalore,as I was curious about Linux Embedded and after attending the event I learnt a lot about the Linux Community, Embedded Devices, OMAP specification, how to deploy kernel to your device, how to configure the devices! We worked on a device called as Beagleboard .........About Beagleboard :
  • DVI-D for connecting digital computer monitors
  • Compatibility with a huge collection of USB peripherals including hubs, keyboards, mice, WiFi, Bluetooth, web cameras, and much more
  • MMC+/SD/SDIO interface for memory or wireless connectivity
  • S-Video out for connecting your NTSC or PAL television or wearable visor
  • Stereo audio in and out for a microphone and headphones or speakers
  • Power via typical USB chargers for cell phones from your laptop, from an automobile adapter, from batteries, or even from a solar backpack
*If you want to try it out, just see this wiki.
