Yes, but that's a very big if. Also, the firmware the raspberry pi uses is compiled for the raspberry pi. We don't try to support other devices, although it might work anyway. IF you get the chips from broadcom, I think they'll also provide you with the firmware source code and tools to compile it.cgaller wrote:Thanks for the reply! Just to clarify, the code required to fully bootstrap the broadcom chip is entirely contained in the firmware on the FAT32 partition? In other words, if I purchase some broadcom sample SoC's, they will boot properly as long as I include those two pieces of software you indicated? Thanks!
I would love to use the compute module, however it seems nobody is able to provide a time frame regarding availability.jamesh wrote:Yes, I believe that when you buy a load of chips form Broadcom, you would get the firmware you need with them.
When I say a load, I mean at least 100k, probably lots more.
If you want a BCM2835 based device, look at the compute module. That makes the whole process so much easier. Which of course is why it was developed.
