Hello,

Do you know any cheap hardware to run any of the embedded software ?
Do you know any software that i could run on my PC i386, booting off a diskette ?

Well, anything cheap, would make it for me, as a student to learn.

Thanks

P.D.- I have read about :

Hardware: NET+50, Dragonix VZ, all the expensive boards on uclinux.org,...
Software: rtlinux,peeweelinux,uclinux,emDebian,ecOS,jacOs,...

But i all i have found is questions... :roll:

Re: Student - Hardware && Software for a embedded sy

Hi,

Are you trying learn about something specific or do you just want to learn about embedded systems in general? Unfortunately there's not too much demand for development boards so the boards you see at uclinux.org (and pretty much anywhere else) are catering to a niche market (low quantity = higher cost).

embedded systems aren't really that much different from non-embedded systems and I think you can learn what you need off of linux (after all, you can't beat free).

There used to be a linux distribution call LOAF that will boot off a floppy, and there are several others that are used for firewall, emergency rescue, etc. I think these will run on a 386.
