Tedious work to insert it afterwards, but this could prove useful.

Tagging devices

At the end of each wiki page about a device, we should add the appropriate tags.
Simply add the tags space separated like this: {{tag>8flash 64ram USB2.0 1NIC 2WNIC 4port}}


System on a Chip





CPU Cores


Ethernet-Standard of SoC and Switch

Internal switch







other PCB components


Power Options



Reference design

Tags for reference designs of chip manufacturers may be used for fast and easy comparisons: ,

Unsupported devices

  • = Even though it is possible to build heavily stripped down OpenWrt-image, devices with only 2MB of flash memory will not be officially supported in OpenWrt! See for example telnet_enable on howto remove dropbear.
  • = Support for target ubicom32 was removed in r34430, r34431, r34432: “This target is unused, does not support any off the shelf hardware and has been a maintenance burden for quite some time now.”

Tagging articles

We could add tags to wiki articles, too. For example all articles which are being linked to from this page usb.overview, could contain the tag . Other Tags could be bootloader.

Searching for tags / tag combinations

You can search for devices with special tags in different ways:
