I have been following the DMP stuff for a long while now, as well as other offerings from the x86 camp. Vortex86EX doesn't have any VGA video output however. This means it would require a GPU. Any tiny x86 solution that ends up costing more than double a raspberry pi to make (or sell) is not really worth it in my view..

If I were to make an x86-powered flea, I would be more interested in making a whole computer, rather than just a shield to connect to the processor module - it would be cheaper and better to do so. FleaFPGA could do this using FPGA softcores like Next186 or Zet. While neither of these solutions are 386-compatible, the closest to it that I'm aware of would be Next186 SoC running EMU386.EXE Smile
