AN0013 - TV video output for the EB675001DIP

Completed real AN0013 circuit board

This application note describes creating a dumb framebuffer with PAL composite TV output. It uses a minimal number of additional components above an SRAM to store the video data and a shift register for the output.

AN0014 - Acessing General Purpose I/O from Linux

This application note describes how General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) pins may be manipulated, from Linux, on various Simtec products.

AN0016 - Adding an MMC card slot to the EB2410ITX

Schematic layout

The EB2410ITX is equipped with a smartmedia socket for flash memory expansion. Recently however the SD/MMC standard has become more prevalent. This application note describes a method for adding an MMC card slot to this board.

AN0017 - A Programmers Bookshelf


We are often asked by our customers what books we recommend for various areas of computing. This is a very hard question because may areas of "embedded" computing cross large swathes of computer science and require knowledge in several fields. Because of these issues its very hard to give recommendations so instead heres a novel approach to the question we hope you will find useful.
