Development Hardware

The hardware used during WODE development was Embedded Artists' LPC3131 Development Board.

Development Hardware Overview

Embedded Artists' LPC3131 OEM Board (mounted on the LPC31xx Base Board) lets you get up-and-running quickly with NXP's ARM926EJ-S LPC3xxx microcontroller series in general and with LPC3131 in particular. The OEM board has SODIMM format and is only 66x48 mm and is perfect for running Linux with large on-board RAM and FLASH. All processor signals are available on the 200 pos connector for easy expansion. The board can be used in OEM applications, as well as for education purposes, experiment, and prototype projects.

Linux Distribution NXP will provide a Linux distribution for the board based on Linux 2.6 and using APEX for booting. The distribution is provided "as-is" and without any support from Embedded Artists.
