A few years back you could buy a development kit that had a next generation processor, perhaps some memory, and a little IO. Further back was the world of transputers that came on a board in various array sizes. For huge amounts of money now days you can buy FPGA kits. I think the acronym is. And of course most imbedded control chips and boards come with either an emulator or mockup boards for programming and debugging.
I want to play with an Itanium. I am interested in the assembly features. Don’t need it to have masses of memory or be super fast. What is the simplest way to do this. I probably don’t have the budget for a modern standalone system using one as it core processor. I am rather looking for a dev kit with one on a PCI board or development kit programmed serially or something like that.
Any ideas or experience in this area gentlemen.
