2009-10-05 09:41:15     Adding SSD Flash to a Blackfin board

Hi all,

 

I'm interested in integrating a Blackfin board running uClinux into our robot hand project (  www.shadowrobot.com). But I have one quick question for which I haven't been able to find the answer.

 

The board I'm interested in (TCM - BF537) only has 8MB of Flash, but we need much more.  I assume that if I wire in an SSD card, then uClinux will be able to make use of it, I.E. mount it as a drive etc?  Is this correct.

 

Many thanks in advance.  I look forward to trying my first Blackfin board soon.

Many people are running uClinux on the TCM-BF537. - the size of the flash depends on the size of the apps you want to load. but to answer your question - yes -- if you wire in an SSD card (either over SPI or GPIO) the kernel can mount it, and load/save files from it.
