Why ARM Servers, And Why Now? - - It is a pity that smartphones and tablets did not come along earlier and did not need 64-bit processing and memory addressing sooner than they did. Had these consumer...
Porting to 64-bit ARM - - Why 64-bit? It seems that is a question with many answers! For some, it will be the need to address more than 2GB or 4GB of memory, for others the need for wider...
Linux ARM - Computer on Module (COM)
Newark Element14 launched the RIoTboard, a $74 open source SBC for IoT applications that runs Android 4.3 or Linux 3.0 on a 1GHz Freescale i.MX6Solo SoC.
Premier Farnell has introduced a Linux-ready SBC with a 7-inch touchscreen and Atmel ARM9-based CPU module, aimed at HMI applications including home automation.
Acme Systems has opened pre-orders at 10 Euros ($14) for a tiny DIY-oriented module called the Arietta G25 built around Atmel’s 400MHz ARM9 SAM9G25 SoC.
Advantech’s first ARM-based SBC is a signage oriented 3.5-inch embedded board called the RSB-4410 that runs Linux on a Freescale i.MX6 at just 2.3 Watts
MYIR announced a Linux- and Android-ready COM called the “MYC-AM335X” with six versions of the TI Sitara AM335x SoC, plus a baseboard and touchscreens.
If you want a quad core development board for less than $100, you only have two choices right now: Radxa Rock powered by Rockchip RK3188, and Hardkernel ODROID-U3 powered by Samsung Exynos 4412 prime.
This new Intrinsic (http://www.intrinsyc.com/) Dragonboard uses as Snapdragon 800 processor and has an optional display. The Dragonboard is capable of playing 4k video. The Dragonboard can even run Ubuntu. The dragonboard is already available for a price of 499 USD. INTRINSYC makes both system on module designs for 200 USD as well as development boards.
Toradex Colibri VF50 and Colibri VF61 are system-on-modules respectively powered by Freescale Vyrbrid VF5xx Cortex A5 SoC and Vybrid VF6xx dual core Cortex A5/M4 SoC, which are part of the company’s Colibri ARM computer on modules.
http://inforcecomputing.com is an embedded Pico-ITX development kit maker using Qualcomm, here their latest 8064 chip with 2GB RAM in a compact dev board retailing at $149. The boards come with basic connections like micro hdmi, micro sd, and ethernet.
Anichips announced a $59 SBC said to be the first Pico-ITX board based on Allwinner’s dual-core, Cortex-A7 based A20 SoC. The 100 x 72mm, open source, Android- and Linux-ready PhoenixA20 offers multiple display and wireless interfaces, as well as camera and Ethernet ports, and is supported by the same SwiftBoard.org community that backs the company’s Allwinner A10-based SwiftBoard.
The Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone Black and Cubieboard are probably the best selling ARM Linux boards in the sub $50 category, but they’ll soon be joined by Olimex A10-OLinuXino-LIME powered by AllWinner A10 ARM Cortex A8 SoC with 512MB RAM that will sell for 30 Euros (About $40) when it becomes available in December.
Taipei, Taiwan – Oct, 2013 -- Artila Electronics, the leading designer and manufacturer of ARM based embedded computer, is proud to announce the release of M-5360A, ARM Cortex A8 System on Module.
The Cubieboard brings SATA connectivity to a very low price point ARM Single Board Computer (SBC). The board has an ARM A8, 1Gb of RAM, 4Gb of Flash storage, HDMI output, and a whole bunch of IO pins. A recent update, the Cubieboard2 is now out, which replaces the Allwinner A10 CPU from the original Cubieboard (single A8 core) with a dual core Allwinner A20 (two A7 ARM cores).
Electronics distributor Avnet has added Taiwan-based TechNexion’s computer-on-modules to its board-level embedded products portfolio. The deal raises the profile of TechNexion’s open EDM (Embedded Design Modules) standard that defines three COM sizes usable with both ARM and x86 CPUs, and which incidentally forms the computing core of the open hardware Wandboard SBC.
Timesys announced embedded Linux support for a pair of computer-on-modules that combine CPU, DSP, and FPGA functions on tiny, SODIMM-style cards. Critical Link’s MityDSP-L138 series COMs are based on a Texas Instruments OMAP-L138 ARM9+DSP system-on-chip processor, along with an optional Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA.
