We started to port Linux to the early PXA255 based skeye.allegro several years ago. For these there is very basic Linux support for demonstration purposes. For the modern PX320-CPU based generation Linux support is pretty complete. In addition to this we have ported Android to the skeye.allegro LS which is now an official Metric product.
|Basic device support (CPU, memory, serial port)||complete|
|SD / MMC, SDIO||supported|
|Power management / standby||supported|
|Booting from flash||supported (using the original bootloader)|
|USB host and client||supported|
|Laser Barcode reader||supported|
There are several different variants of this device available in the market. Therefore there is no single demo image available for all of these. Currently you need to install Linux on some variants of the device for testing. Therefore you might need the flash update tool in order to be able to install Linux and an image file with the original Windows CE software in order to restore the old state.
not available so far
If you want to try on your device please drop us a mail so that we can check if we have an easy to use demo for it.
