Source code for both eCos and RedBoot is available publically from eCos releases 2.0 and onwards, as well as from the anonymous CVS repository.


Specifications are available for the processor and platform and are available on-line from the manufacturer's web site.

Instructions for installing RedBoot on the Assabet can be found in the RedBoot User's Guide. Board specific instructions, including installation instructions can be found here within the User's Guide.
