“The final version of EFIKA, an MPC5200B System-on-Chip based ‘miniature mainboard’ by bplan/Genesi and one of the most important PowerPC community support projects sponsored by Freescale had its first public demonstration at an embedded electronics symposium in Germany. PPCNUX has been on site to find out more about the versatile PPC entry hardware.”

I so want one of these that it’s not funny.
EFIKA could be supplied with a modern PCI-IDe controller, but you would lose the ability to put a graphics card. Am I right? By the way I have an S3 Virge graphics card here. Can I use it?
I really would like to have one of these cards too.
Graphics card: S3 Virge works with Xorg, but it’s not very fast. If you look at the roadmap for the MPC5xxx CPUs you see a 90nm CPU with integrated 3D acceleration and display controller will be released by Freescale next year. Hopefully later EFIKA boards will have that CPU.
