Checked uboot documentation and their notes agrees with suggestion.
I do it this evening.

I had meeting yesterday and mention progress of EOMA.
The company still very interested in seeing EOMA succeed
but prefer I stick to distance and dabbling because of other pending

What about LCD? Do you have specific models?
I can get 2 pieces ordered in anticipation.

The VGA I will send a couple of bare boards to Chris
when they arrive because he can get them soldered faster
than I can. 

How is the LCD to interface to be implemented for the first trial
devices - RGB parallel or LVDS? If LVDS do you need another board built
that takes RGB and converts to LVDS using a chip like the THC63LVD823B
from Thine?
