Rockchip's RK3066 chip is a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with clock speeds up to 1.6 GHz. The processor is popular with Chinese tablet makers, and a growing number of USB thumb drive-sized mini computers and TV dongles (such as the UG802 and MK802 III) use the RK3066 processor.
At the end of last year, ARM announced ARMv8, the first ARM 64-bit ARM archtecture, and last week at ARM Techcon 2012, ARM announced the first ARMv8 cores: Cortex A53 and A57. But since there’s no silicon at the moment, what if you wanted to develop code running on ARMv8 before the hardware is available?
AMD, AppliedMicro, Calxeda, Canonical, Cavium, Facebook, HP, Marvell and Red Hat join existing Linaro members ARM, HiSilicon, Samsung and ST-Ericsson to form new group focused on accelerating Linux development for ARM servers
A few minutes ago, November 1st, the Fedora development team proudly announced the immediate availability for download of the first Alpha version of the upcoming Fedora 18 operating system for the ARM architecture.
With Ubuntu 13.04 there will likely be an AArch64 (64-bit ARM) spin of the popular Linux distribution.
Another 6 months, another Ubuntu Developer Summit event for Canonical, where Mark Shuttleworth is always present and keeps his audience captivated. Yes, we're talking about the Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) event for the upcoming Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) operating system, which takes place these days, between October 29th and November 1st, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
It’s no secret that you can run Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, or other Linux-based software on the new $249 Samsung Chromebook. But now one of the first operating systems designed specifically for the ARM-based laptop is available… or at least an early build is available.
Hot on the heels of the news that the Google Chromebook runs openSUSE (even made slashdot) and following the closing of the openSUSE Conference in Prague, Dirk Müller let the ARM team knowthat RC2 is about ready to go and this will be the final before the release of openSUSE for ARM! Read on to find out some details of this exciting release.
Consumer electronics leader LG Electronics and Linaro, the not-for-profit engineering organization develop-ing open source soft-ware for the ARM architecture, today announced that LG will join Linaro to cooperate on new ARM technologies.
Within the forthcoming Linux 3.7 kernel there is support for Xen virtualization support on ARM when using a Cortex-A15 SoC. While not yet merged to mainline, KVM virtualization support for the ARM architecture is also coming about.
Red Hat developers are porting OpenJDK to ARMv8, the 64-bit ARM architecture (also known as A64). According to a blog postby Andrew Haley of Red Hat, the development is taking place because "the current OpenJDK ARM situation is rather unsatisfactory, and we want to do better with A64".
While the ultimate future of Texas Instruments' OMAP division remains uncertain, their software engineers continue to work on maturing the OMAP5 Linux support.
Rob Clark has provided a status update on Freedreno, his reverse-engineered ARM open-source graphics driver for the Qualcomm Snapdragon / Adreno hardware.
The popular budget-friendly Raspberry Pi ARM development board now has a fully open-source graphics stack -- the user-space graphics drivers for the Broadcom VideoCore included!
A quick search reveals that the WWW holds a vast array of material and tools classed as emulators, virtual machines and interpreters. These range from the highly sophisticated to simple academic exercises. If you narrow your search and look for X86 assembler emulators, you will find commercial DOS emulators, Basic language tools, Java utilities such as Jasmin, and a CodeProject article, ASM.net X86, amongst others.
The ARM 64-bit compiler port (AArch64) of the GNU Compiler Collection is now ready for merging to trunk.
One of few very technical and worthwhile sessions during the openSUSE Conference at this weekend's LinuxDays event was about porting Linux to new ARM-based hardware devices.
While Ubuntu has been taking the ARM server and desktop markets seriously for quite some time and is leading quite well on that front, Fedora has been getting behind ARM, and other distributions like Gentoo and Arch have their own interesting ARM Linux undertakings, openSUSE has been rather late to the party.
It appears that Samsung is preparing to open-source some code pertaining to their Exynos ARM SoC. At an event this weekend (YouTube stream), Samsung said they will open-source the kernel and platform components of their Exynos SoC. This new code is said to be dual-licensed under the GPLv2 and Apache 2.0 licenses.
The Nexus 7 tablet may be Google's flagship Android tablet. But it has a bootloader that can be unlocked, a powerful 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. In other words, it should be perfectly capable of running other operating systems.
