Re: Debian ARM success story: Debian desktop on a TS-7300

Hi Andrew,

I don't know much about the FPGA.  I do know that Technologic Systems pre-programs it to contain the ability to drive some of the components on the board, like
-the vga port (one must simply use the fb driver of x.org).  That is to say, there is no video chipset on the TS-7300.  That is to say, the video hardware is implimented in the FPGA, so I guess you could say it sort of has firmware-based video.
-one of the two RJ45 ethernet jacks.
-all the serial ports one could use (many are accessible via various pins on the board).

I haven't personally programmed the FPGA and I'm not sure how.  If I did know how, the first thing I would want to do is improve the video to be able to do 800x600, or (gasp) 1024x768.

Hi Dustin,
Thanks for the writeups, I'll try to get my boss to spring for one of these boards.
Are you doing anything with Cyclone FPGA? That's what caught my eye and I'm interested to find out what you can do with that. I've got a Quartus/NIOS dev system so I'd be curious to find out what I could do with an ARM and a Cyclone II coupled together.
