Debian and its clones Technologic Systems is offering a freely downloadable, Debian-based Linux OS image said to boot from an SD card in less than two seconds, on the company's ARM9-based SBC (single-board computer). The TS-7300 SBC targets embedded applications requiring "extreme design security, flexibility, and reliability", according to the company.

Technologic has the price list for their parts on line.

For the TS7200 it's at http://www.embeddedarm.com/epc/ts7200-spec-p.php

Replace the '7200' in the url with the model number for the others.

I've got a TS-7250 with a USB external hard drive attached to it that, just for giggles, I've self-hosted NetBSD on. It takes it a week to build all of NetBSD from source, but it does manage.

This is why you want to cross-compile it from a faster machine and cut it down to less than 2 hours ;)

See http://www.netbsd.org/guide/en/chap-build.html for details.

I use my iMac G5 to build NetBSD's userland & kernel for my Cobalt Qube2. It's over 60 times faster at compiling the sources.
