The EFIKA is an embedded PowerPC board with a 400MHz 32-bit freescale MPC5200 (603e/e300), 128MB RAM, 100MBit/s NIC, 2xUSB 1.1, Soundchip, 2.5" harddisk connector, PCI and AGP (with riser-card) and serial out.

Pylon received a board for development work on it. I will leave it in the C4, so that we can attach additional hardware on it.

Ideas for development tasks

  1. mpd-server as in-replacement for the already existing one
  2. connection to the Fnordlicht
  3. using jack for disco-lights



Currently I don't have any harddisk available, so this could not be tested. But it would be nice to create a complete stand-alone machine out of it.


It's also possible to boot via USB. But it's only USB 1.1, so very slow.
