• Linux on ARMElectronics 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.

  • Linux on ARMArrow Electronics and Terasic have announced a $249, Linux- and Android-ready SBC development kit built around Altera’s hybrid ARM+FPGA Cyclone V SoC, supported by a community site. The Sockit Development Kit offers 2GB RAM plus I/O interfaces including VGA, audio, gigabit Ethernet, and USB, plus high speed on-board expansion via off-the-shelf or custom expansion cards.

  • Linux on ARMWASHINGTON, DC—The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) hasn't yet cleared the runway for unmanned aircraft to fly under any circumstances other than federal law enforcement, public safety, and a few experimental applications. But for those looking to take a flying leap into creating their own unmanned eyes in the sky, a Newport Beach, California, company called Airware is trying to make it as easy as pie—Raspberry Pi, that is.

  • Linux on ARMPyPy, a fast yet compliant implementation of Python, has ARM Just-In-Time compiler support with today's version 2.1 release.

  • Linux on ARMThe 64-bit ARM back-end to the LLVM/Clang compiler now supports generating NEON instructions for AArch64.

  • Linux on ARMThe reverse-engineered Freedreno driver for open-source Qualcomm Adreno graphics support is quickly taking shape as the leading ARM Linux graphics driver for the (non-Android) Linux desktop.

  • Linux on ARMIEE announced a Linux-based thin-client touchpanel computer for harsh military environments. The highly rugged touchpanel computer is equipped with a 1GHz ARM processor and a 10.4-inch, 1024 x 768-pixel resistive touchscreen with backlighting and high contrast, and is usable over an extended temperature range of -46 to 70°C.

  • Linux on ARMMontaVista Software announced that its MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition (CGE) 6.0 is the first Linux distribution to have been registered for Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) 5.0 under the ARM profile. The move reflects an expected surge of ARM processors in networking and telecom gear.

  • Linux on ARMJared Smith will discuss running Linux on hardware powered by ARM processors, and why it may be the next big thing in computing. He'll discuss various aspects of the ARM architecture, various hardware that is available, and how to get started using the ARM platform.

  • Linux on ARMHello. We're pleased to announce an alpha release of PyPy 2.0 for ARM. This is mostly a technology preview, as we know the JIT is not yet stable enough for the full release. However please try your stuff on ARM and report back.

  • Linux on ARMIn addition to improved 64-bit ARM support with the Linux 3.10 kernel, ARM architecture support in general will improve a lot with this in-development kernel release.

  • Linux on ARMLinaro Connect Europe 2013 (LCE13) is being held at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin, Ireland on 8-12 July. As we enter this stage in our planning I wanted to remind you to register today!

  • Linux on ARMAlong with an assortment of other power management improvements to land with the Linux 3.10 kernel, a cpufreq driver for ARM's big.LITTLE is being introduced. There's also a cpufreq driver for the Exynos 5440 quad-core and the new AMD frequency sensitivity feedback support.

  • Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds recently released a new version of the Linux kernel -- version 3.9 -- that advances the core of the GNU/Linux operating system with a number of new features. Among other tweaks, the new kernel rolls in new drivers, improves virtualization support, adds new hardware sleep modes, and tweaks file system and storage support.

  • Linux on ARMCHIP DESIGNER ARM has expanded its Development Studio 5 integrated development environment (IDE) to support embedded Linux application development on its processors.

  • Linux on ARMWhat: ARM® has extended the scope of the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) Community Edition (CE) to provide a fully featured, industry standard, and free-to-use software development environment for ARM Embedded Linux applications.

  • Linux on ARMLearn how to debug an ARM Linux application on a Panda board using the the free toolchain ARM DS-5 Community Edition

  • Linux on ARMThe Linux kernel is having to remove support for NWFPE and VFP emulation code due to a licensing conflict. Removing NWFPE and VFP from the kernel will effectively render older ARM hardware on Linux useless until a solution is determined.

  • Linux on ARMThe openSUSE ARM community, through Andrew Wafaa, is proud to announce that the openSUSE ARM Hackathon event takes place these days, between 8 and 12 April 2013, at the SUSE offices in Nuremberg, as well as online for everyone else who cannot attend in person.

  • Linux on ARMSteve McIntyre and the Linaro Enterprise Group recently analyzed Ubuntu and Fedora software packages to see what software was still relying upon hand-written Assembly code. This was done to see how much real Assembly is being used, to see what the code was used for, and whether it was worth porting to 64-bit ARM / AArch64 / ARMv8.
