The picture shows the old version, but most of it is the 
same.  The Beagle plus an interface board becomes an 
identical drop-in replacement for the ISA bus DMA card that 
used to run the thing.

I wrote a program for the Beagle's PRU processor to imitate 
the DMA card's functions, and also unpack run-length encoded 
data on the fly.
