"OpenHardware.net announces availability of design data for a
SIMM-sized 10BaseT Ethernet board. The tiny Ethernet interface
board is meant to be used with the EZ328SIMM, a SIMM-sized
single-board computer that contains a Motorola MC68EZ328 CPU and is
supported by the current uClinux embedded Linux distribution.
All design data, including the schematics & PCB GERBER data
files needed to reproduce the MPU board (photo), Ethernet board,
and a matching mini-motherboard (photo), are available for public
download on the project's website."
"This completes the reference design with all manufacturing data
now available to construct a Linux based prototype system. The
project goal has been to evaluate an MMU-less controller without
paying the high cost of a more complex development system, and gain
experience with embedded Linux. Schematics, development software
RPMs, board data, and documentation are fully available
"Individuals and companies seeking to rapidly transition into an
embedded Linux platform, without undergoing the delay of designing
their own evaluation system, are encouraged to duplicate the system
for research and evaluation purposes. The Gerber data for
reproducing the boards is restricted from commercial use; however,
the schematics have no such restrictions (i.e. download them, and
do what you want with them!)."
