embedded beginner. :)
I'm new to this embedded world of hardware and is trying to find my way
forward. I have a fax soloution currently running on "normal pc
hardware" which I would like to get running on a smaller(physical)
hardware in a custom casing.
I've been looking at the etrax 100lx from axis and it seems like a nice
piece of hardware, it seems like it have all the functionality I need.
The thing I'm uncertain about is the ide-interface, its not well covered
in the datasheet, but is it possible to just hook up a normal ata
compatible harddrive and run it, assuming its properly configured?
How much different is it to work with? Can I boot from the flash memory
and when that boot is finished continue to start programs located on the
harddrive? Probably a very obvious question, but just to make sure. :)
