There has been a lot of delay in getting AT91SAM9 support into the eCos
repository. Far too much delay. I think the best way forward now is to
focus on Evgeniy Dushitov's contribution (port for AT91SAM9263)
This seems sensible because:
a) The patches themselves are well abstracted.
b) Some people are already using these patches as a baseline for
further AT91SAM9 ports.

I would like to invite everyone with an interest in AT91SAM9 support for
eCos to add themselves to the CC list for bug 1000819 and contribute to
the review process. Let's make this a community effort.
We, Keystone Electronic Solutions, have already done a Redboot port
for the AT91SAM9X512 and AT91SAM9260 devices based on Evgeniy's
patches if anybody is interested. I have no idea as to how up to date
our patch is but I will be will to provide our source if anybody is
I have also used the port to build some test applications for these
devices but nothing enterprise level yet. We use the Redboot port as
boot loader for our Linux platforms.
I have a personal copyright assignment for eCos, but will probably
need a blanket company wide in order to contribute this work.
What's the latest news on the AT91 chip sets? From Bugzilla it appears
that there will be some reshuffling. I've been away from eCos for a few
years, but am looking to start a project with a legacy AT91 then
hopefully move it to a SAM3 in a few months.
Has anyone started work on the SAM3's?
How can I help?
