I thought I would just post some information on a new package we put out... it's an Altera Cyclone FPGA development board that is geared towards running uClinux with networking support. The first revision of the board is up with free schematics available for download.. some basic specs are:

LinuxDev is a variation on the 1.0C revision of EthDev. The features include:

* Open-hardware
* Altera Cyclone FPGA, 12,000 LEs
* Up to 256MB of 133MHz SDRAM
* 10/100 PHY w/ Magnetics
* SD/MMC socket
* 1 USB Host port w/ PHY
* 1 USB Slave port w/ PHY
* 16-bit GPIO header
* I2C Peripherals (RTC, EEPROM and Temperature Sensor)
* 4 Mbit serial configuration device and 32 Mbit SPI Flash
* Support for both Altera ByteBlaster and Altium LiveDesign JTAG programmers
* Up to 3 on-board oscillators
* RS-232 port

Also, a full linux toolchain and uClinux source tree is also available either as part of the board, or a separate cross-development kit. Full information, including detailed specs are located here:

The layout/BOM is also available for free if anyone wants it for reference...
