Farnell a Freescale Sabre Lite board (see above).
I removed the supplied OS and now have Linaro Linux running on it.
This has a Quad core ARM processor on it with each core running
at up to 1 GHz. It also has 1 Gb RAM and interestingly a 24 bit RGB input port.
The hardware H.264 encoder will encode 1080P at 30 fps and decode at 60 fps.
I plan eventually to port my DATV code to this and use it in conjunction with a
DATV-Express board as a standalone DATV system. There is no MPEG2 on it
but I understand it is capable of encoding MPEG2 in software in real time using
GStreamer plug ins.
Which nicely takes us on to DATV-Express, the board design files have been sent to
the manufacturer and should be ready on the 21st of February. Then they will need to
be hand populated.
Finally I was made aware of this Kickstarter project bladeRF which looks very
interesting, it would be fully capable of doing DATV. What makes it interesting is the
LimeMicro LMS6002D chip which integrates the RF, mixers, Anti-alias filters and
ADC/DAC onto one chip and which will operate at up to 3.8 GHz. I am tempted as I
could easily move my DATV code to run on it. I wish them well with the project.
Now if they could only get the price down :)
