Linux on ARMWe’ve seen low power ARM-based processors show up in everything from smartphones to set-top-boxes, from tablets to USB thumb drive-sized PCs. Now a company called Kontron is slapping together Mini-ITX computer motherboard featuring an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor.

In other words, unlike the Raspberry Pi and other ARM-based mini-computers, the upcoming Kontron KTT30 MiTX motherboard will fit into any off-the-shelf computer case designed for a mini-ITX board.

That could make the KTT30 a starting point for a DIY low power computer with a TDP of under 7 watts.

While Windows doesn’t yet run on ARM-based processors, there are a wide range of Linux-based operating systems including Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora that support ARM chips. And of course there’s always Google Android.
