Subject: Open hardware for RockBox

Open hardware for RockBox

I was wondering what sort of the minimum hardware would be for RockBox to be
ported to. Many of the chips are SoCs that use ARM cores of various sorts.

My question is what sort of hardware could you get away with. For instance
what if you had a bare ARM core and some SDRAM over a EPI interface? Or what
if you had just a tiny < 100 kB SRAM built into the core?

Presumably all of these SoC use different drivers for the user interface,
the porting process must be quite lengthy...

Loads of respect,

Brian
