Starter Kit for Linux in Virtex?

Started by Frank Benoit June 15, 2004
Hi 

I want to build an application with linux running in
virtex2pro with ethernet and usb. Now I want to calculate. How much, do I
have to invest? For this calculation I have to know which components I
need.

Can anybody give me a hint? Which evaluation board is best, to evaluate
linux in Virtex II Pro PowerPC core? Which components are really
necessary? I start from zero, so I think I need:

SW-development:
	Xilinx EDK
	IBM RiscWatch?

HW-Debugger
	Xilinx Chipscope

Verilog Devel.:
	ISE BaseX + Simulator
	Parallel Cable IV 

Evaluationboard:
	Virtex2 Pro
	SDRAM
	Interface JTAG, TRACE
	SystemACE ?
	USB Interface
	Ehternet Interface

Xilinx: ML300 (it is not availible from Xilinx online store?)
avnet: Virtex-II Pro Evaluation Kit
Memec Design: Virtex-II Pro FG456 

Do I miss something?
