Not bad, but it's a 225pin LFBGA, and currently only has drivers for
Windows. I can solder it in house, but I'm not so sure most other people
could, and it's not exactly something we could use quickly for prototyping.

That said, I think you're spot on in using it or something similar, as a
diverse USB/DVI PHY interface for the EOMA68 cards. It has some VERY
Impressive features, and supports a vast array of video output options. I'd
love to use it in a minimal interface card, but it has to support *Nix. (Or
more specifically, *Linux has to support it).
