Fujitsu MB86S70 and MB86S73 ARM Cortex A15 & A7 Processors Run Linux for the Embedded Market

Linux on ARMI like to check the ARM Linux kernel mailing list from time to time, as you may discover a few upcoming ARM processors. This week I found out Exynos 5433 and Exynos 7 are actually two different processors (thanks David!), and that AMD had submitted code for their 64-bit ARM Opteron A1100 SoC for servers.

64-bit ARM architecture project update

Linux on ARMIn this month’s project update we will take a look at the ongoing FreeBSD 64-bit ARM port. AArch64 is the official name for the 64-bit ARM architecture, but it is also known as ARMv8 and arm64. The 64-bit ARM architecture is expected to find use in traditional server markets, in contrast to the embedded and mobile markets where 32-bit ARM is widely adopted.

HP Moonshot ARM Server runs AppliedMicro X-Gene 64bit ARMv8 Octa-Core

Linux on ARMClark and Linda of HP give an inside look at HP's Moonshot system configured with their new m400 ARM cartridges. Each cartridge is an individual 64-bit ARM server using AppliedMicro's X-Gene SOC, with 8 cores and 64Gb of RAM with 2 Mellanox 10G NICs. The servers are running OpenStack with a mix of cloud controller services and Nova compute nodes.

Imp mini PC is a tiny, ARM-based Ubuntu computer

Linux on ARMWant a small, low-power desktop computer that runs Ubuntu Linux, but don’t want to go through the hassle of installing and configuring the operating system yourself? A company called Imp wants to deliver a tiny desktop with an ARM-based CPU, 2GB of RAM, and open source software. They’re launching a crowdfunding campaign to fund the project soon, with prices expected to run about $150.

ARM power Qualcomm finally bids on server market

Linux on ARMARM servers, with their low power requirements, have long been moving into server rooms and even are starting to march into the data center. While many ARM vendors — such as Applied Micro Circuits, Advanced Micro Devices and Cavium — have been pushing this trend, one major ARM manufacturer, Qualcomm with its Snapdragon designs, had stayed out of the server market. Until today.

Applied Micro X-Gene (64-bit ARM) vs Intel Xeon (64-bit x86) Performance and Power Usage

Linux on ARMA group of researcher at CERN have evaluated Applied Micro X-Gene 1 64-bit ARM XC-1 development board against Intel Xeon E5-2650 and Xeon Phi SE10/7120 systems, and one of them, David Abdurachmanov, presented their findings at ACAT’ 14 conference (Advanced Computing and Analysis Techniques) by listing some of the issues they had to port their software to 64-bit ARM, and performance efficiency of the three systems for data processing of High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments like those at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), where performance-per-watt is important, as computing systems may scale to several hundred thousands cores.

Developing on ARM – Everything you need to know

Linux on ARMThere is no doubt about the popularity of ARM’s range of microprocessor designs. From small microcontrollers to its multi-core 64-bit processors, ARM is responsible for the design and intellectual property in everything from white goods to server farms. The use of ARM based processors in smartphones and tablets means that both Android and iOS users rely on these chips every day.
