This application note demonstrates NOR kernel building and board setup using the DaVinci DM644x Digital Evaluation Module (DVEVM) package. The goal is to build the smallest possible kernel using the MontaVista Linux Support Package (LSP) with support for an HTTP server, a TCP/IP stack, and necessary drivers for Ethernet and UART for the serial debug terminal. The kernel resides in NOR flash and uses a RAM disk-based file system, which is also stored on flash.
