Well personally I'm hoping there will be some useful boards based on the Freescale i.MX515 - a 1 GHz Cortex-A8 with built-in Ethernet and ATA controllers (noticably lacking from the TI OMAP3 that Beagleboard uses, and its OMAP4 successor), it's one step closer to an ideal desktop chip. Shame the video (as with most if not all of these chips, it seems) is still limited to 720p and no external PCI bus.

Go-faster stripes for PC-format media access app Fat32Fs, by Jeffrey Doggert, lets Iyonix users read from and write to large FAT-formatted media, such as Flash-based removable media. Drobe reader Richard Ashbery got in touch to say the software is now much faster - it can read 100MB of data off a Sandisk 4GB CF Extreme 3 card in 59 seconds and write it back in 57 seconds, showing write speeds have improved by a factor of four. 9 comments, latest by AW on 21/1/09 9:21PM.
