A Free and Open Replacement for Wireless LAN

wpwrak good news, but Wiki needs a bit of cleanup (3 comments)

As the engineer who has designed these boards, I'm very happy with what we have achieved. But at the same time, I feel that the information we have in the Wiki is not adequate for mass consumption yet. I'm preparing a more concise technical description and post a link as further commentary here in a few hours.

Consumer Device With Open CPU Out of Beta Soon

wpwrak it's an entire system (99 comments)

What makes this great (and unusual) is that there's an entire SoC in that FPGA, not just the CPU core. And it's all Open, including the graphics.

Micro-SD Card Slot Abused As VGA-Port

wpwrak Re:Available on Any microSD slot? (77 comments)

This hack was tweaked until the MMC/SD controller in the SoC was happy with it. Other controllers may differ. In any case will you need the ability to switch CMD and CLK to GPIOs (without disabling the entire MMC controller) and to bit-bang them at a reasonable speed (at least a few MHz).

So it's quite platform-dependent in its current shape, but you can probably apply the same principles with other SoCs as well.
