Playing with a TS7200.

Technologic Systems TS-7200 is a PC104 form factor SBC board based on  Cirrus Logic EP9302. This is an ARM 9 microcontroller based on ARM920T core plus a bunch of less and more useful peripherals. This piece of hardware would be very funny to use and experiment on if you're gonna install a linux distro on it. First of all, as you can see on the previous sites I wrote, the system come with

  • 200MHz ARM9 CPU

  • PC/104 expansion bus

  • 32MB SDRAM

  • 8MB NOR Flash

  • 1 10/100 Ethernet

  • 2 USB 2.0 (12 Mbit/s max)

  • 1 Compact Flash socket

  • 2 COM ports

  • 20 DIO lines

  • 2 12-bit ADC

  • Watchdog timer, SPI bus

  • Matrix Keypad and text LCD support 

  • Redboot bootloader (installed)

  • TS-linux busybox (installed)

  • now you can forget the TS-linux stuff on it and install your own linux distro and boot it from a CF. My system has got a 4 GB Sandisk CF (30 MB/s) with Debian Lenny on it.
