  1. I would like to get one of these, but I wondered if there are any Linux tools with which I can use it. Anybody?

  2. Thanks! That looks great. Any idea how the USB is exposed to linux soyou can take advange of the inbuilt debugger?

  3. When I first saw one of these TI microcontrollers (in a Power-over-Ethernet power supply), I looked up the data sheet. It reminded me very much of the PDP-11 — a number of 16-bit registers, all general-purpose, with powerful addressing modes. Seems that the author of this web page had the same thought:


    But look how small the chip is compared to a PDP-11!

  4. Sweeeeet I ordered one but they’re backordered until late April!

    Ah well, I guess it will be a good summer project for once I’m done with classes…
