1	ADS GraphicsMaster Single Board Computer
2	
3	For more details, contact Applied Data Systems or see
4	http://www.applieddata.net/products.html
5	
6	The original Linux support for this product has been provided by
7	Nicolas Pitre <nico@fluxnic.net>. Continued development work by
8	Woojung Huh <whuh@applieddata.net>
9	
10	Use 'make graphicsmaster_config' before any 'make config'.
11	This will set up defaults for GraphicsMaster support.
12	
13	The kernel zImage is linked to be loaded and executed at 0xc0400000.
14	
15	Linux can  be used with the ADS BootLoader that ships with the
16	newer rev boards. See their documentation on how to load Linux.
17	
18	Supported peripherals:
19	- SA1100 LCD frame buffer (8/16bpp...sort of)
20	- SA1111 USB Master
21	- on-board SMC 92C96 ethernet NIC
22	- SA1100 serial port
23	- flash memory access (MTD/JFFS)
24	- pcmcia, compact flash
25	- touchscreen(ucb1200)
26	- ps/2 keyboard
27	- console on LCD screen
28	- serial ports (ttyS[0-2])
29	  - ttyS0 is default for serial console
30	- Smart I/O (ADC, keypad, digital inputs, etc)
31	  See http://www.eurotech-inc.com/linux-sbc.asp for IOCTL documentation
32	  and example user space code. ps/2 keybd is multiplexed through this driver
33	
34	To do:
35	- everything else!  :-)
36	
37	Notes:
38	
39	- The flash on board is divided into 3 partitions.  mtd0 is where
40	  the zImage is stored.  It's been marked as read-only to keep you
41	  from blasting over the bootloader. :)  mtd1 is
42	  for the ramdisk.gz image.  mtd2 is user flash space and can be
43	  utilized for either JFFS or if you're feeling crazy, running ext2
44	  on top of it. If you're not using the ADS bootloader, you're
45	  welcome to blast over the mtd1 partition also.
46	
47	- 16bpp mode requires a different cable than what ships with the board.
48	  Contact ADS or look through the manual to wire your own. Currently,
49	  if you compile with 16bit mode support and switch into a lower bpp
50	  mode, the timing is off so the image is corrupted.  This will be
51	  fixed soon.
52	
53	Any contribution can be sent to nico@fluxnic.net and will be greatly welcome!
