Diamond Systems' Linux Software Development Kits offer you a pre-built and ready-to-use "Flash Linux" image. The Linux image is designed specifically to run on a solid-state IDE flashdisk on a specific Diamond Systems' SBC. Each SBC has a unique Linux image with its own part number. It enables you to build a completely solid-state Linux-powered embedded computer that boots quickly with all the device drivers pre-configured and ready to use.
Our Linux images are based on the version 2.6.23 (or higher) Linux kernel. They incorporate several features that make it ideal for use with our single board computers (SBC). Each supported SBC has its own development kit which is designed to work seamlessly with the embedded computer and its hardware components.
Each Linux image includes drivers for:
Ethernet, USB and RS-232 serial ports. All the drivers are pre-configured and installed on boot up
PS/2 Mouse and Keyboard
Serial Ports (pre-configured to work with the target SBC)
IDE storage devices
Ethernet support with local-area network installed
DHCP, SSH, SCP, FTP
Univeral Driver 6.0x for data acquisition with demo programs for analog and digital I/O
Grub version 0.97 boot-loader
2.6.23 Kernel based image
Root file system
GCC version 3.2.3
BusyBox version 1.10.4
Included in the Development Kit is a CD with a binary image of the flashdisk files that you may copy freely onto your own flashdisks, as well as the full source code of the kernel and the root file system for you to build your own image using the same environment.
The SDK-HLV-LNX Linux Software Development Kit includes:
- A Linux 2.6.23 Software Development Kit CD for the Helios single board computer
- A 256MB flashdisk with a bootable Linux image for Helios SBC
- An Installation Guide with easy-to-follow instructions to get started
