I though a bit about the board and came to the conclusion that it may be more intelligent to use a stand-alone component which provides serial ports and an unix os which I then can control over the network. I want to write the port driver myself so it shouldn't require to implement a big sub protocol like I have to do with USB and similar.
Which board is recommended for such a task?
I found so far:
- beagleBoneBlack (does this require a host?)
they mostly support the arm branch of FreeBSD as fallback archlinuxarm is there too
Is there a better port then the old serial one?
