IBM reveals reference design for LINUX PDA
Posted on 23-Jan-2003 20:01. | Tags Filed under: News.



I understand a "reference design" is just an idea, a prototype... And remember, IBM licenses Palm OS for its Workpad PDAs.

The e-LAP reference design PDA includes . . .

* PowerPC 405LP Processor
* 32MB SDRAM
* 32MB Flash (NOR)
* 64MB M-Systems Disk-On-Chip Flash device
* 4-inch LCD color display (240 x 320 pixels)
* TCPA security chip
* Stereo speakers, audio in, audio out
* AC power-in
* Integrated microphone/speech input chamber
* SDIO slot
* Philips USB 1.1 (one client port, two host ports [one is disabled])
* Speech-on button
* Navigation mouse
* 4 programmable input buttons
* Li-Ion battery (1700 mAh)
* Bluetooth 1.1 (via Toshiba SDIO card)
* Xilinx XCR3128XL FPGA (128 macrocells, 3000 gates)

Additionally, a plug-in "developer sled" adds the following options, for development and debug purposes . . .

* USB 1.1 host
* 10/100 Ethernet
* Serial port
* 8- or 16-bit PCMCIA slot
* JTAG debug port
* Flash programming port
