Omap3 evm

I just discover an Omap3 Evaluation module at my school laboratory and there’s some students that are going to start developing an GPS application; As far as I now they are kind of lost about developing Linux applications so I suggest them to look at the different SDK available like OpenEmbedded, Poky, Maemo SDK, Android; and to read about developing applications for Linux;

Tomorrow I’m going to start asking them about which SDK they want to use and in which programming language they prefer to use so I can give some hints and help to start in the right direction.

    Don’t forget to encourage them to participate for Fedora Electronic Lab 🙂 We need more contributors in that field.

      Yep I will; that’s some of my task as Fedora Ambassador 🙂

    Hola Adrian, no se si puedas resolverme una duda: ¿donde puedo conseguir una beagleboard?. He visitado la pagina de digikey, pero me indica que no tienen en existencia. No se si tu sepas de otra forma de obtenerla. Por cierto, gracias por la informacion del blog, me ha servido mucho.

      Hola Luis, al parecer DigiKey se ha quedado sin stock de beagleboard’s lo cual puede ser bueno tal ves salga una nueva revisión de la tarjeta; A cabo de comprar una y posiblemente el Jueves la tenga en mis manos :), Inicialmente trate de comprarla por medio de Mouser electronics pero para mi sorpresa me solicitaron una licencia de importación por que supuestamente la venta esta restringida a México; Pero en Digikey no hubo problema alguno asi que solo te queda esperar o considerar comprar un Gumstix. Saludos.
