Obtaining Hardware

Once you have decided to develop or experiment with uClinux on the Blackfin, you will need to purchase some hardware. Since we regularly test and develop on this hardware, we know for sure it works, and our developers have these specific platforms, so we can fix issues quite quickly which can be replicated on these.
