The Sitara AM3517 can not handel more then 128 MByte per CS line,  so  I
have to install two 1 Gbit to get it running.

It is nice, but for bigger things is 256 MByte not enough

This is, why I try to get ANY required microchips and EVKits for free!

It is already enough, if I have to  pay  the  protytype  PCB  wich  cost
arround 80 Euro for a SO-Dimm size and for the baseboard in the size  A5
arround 350 Euro.

If I see it right, the industrial version of the "Armada 300"  has  only
1600 MHz while the consumer parts 1600 and 2000 MHz

They told me, it is nearly three times more then the Kirkwood 88F6281.

And this is, WHY I install a singel 3,7V/12Ah block (100x125x10,5mm)  in
my TablePC.  :-D

I hope I get the cells in 2-3 weeks...
(the Manufacturer "SouthRiver" is currently sampling)

I am experimenting with EmDebian Grip  which  need  less  then  16 MByte
otherwise the NAND sucks energy for nothing.  Adn I can not say, a  NAND
Flash sucks only some mW.  I have found some real Energy-Monster.

I have nearly the WHOLE material complete to build

1)  TablePC 1    8"     Sitara AM3517            500 MHz
2)  TablePC 2    8"     OMAP 3530                720 MHz
3)  TablePC 3    8"4    Armada 300              1600 MHz

4)  NetBook 1    8"     OMAP 3530                720 MHz
5)  Netbook 2   10"     Armada 300              1600 MHz

6)  PanelPC 1   19"     Armada 300              2000 MHz

7)  Server 1            Kirkwood MV78200        1200 MHZ
                        with two 8ch SAS/SATA Raid Controller

In 9 Days I send out the order for the million connectors @MoreThanAll.

Hey, do you have read the Datasheet for the MAX2769 GPS chip?
What do you think about it?

All we need under Linux is a Kernel-Module depend on  a  SPI  Controller
and "serial" and then we can connect directly with the "gpsd" using NMEA

Oh, I am in contact with BOPLA and the mulding forms for a Netbook  cost
28.000 Euro if the design is simple like <http://www.touchkit.com/>. :-)
