  • Linux on ARMhttp://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.

  • Linux on ARMEmbedded developer Robert Feranec, founder of Slovakian-based Fedevel Academy, is giving a free seminar on ARM board and software design at the Hacker Dojo hacker community center in Silicon Valley on Dec. 14. The seminar will cover embedded development details ranging from DDR3 layout to building a Linux kernel.

  • Linux on ARMThe latest company now offering low-cost ARM development boards for pushing their platform to ARM Linux and Android developers is VIA Technologies. VIA claims their new Springboard platform is "the fast path from prototype to production" and only costs $100 USD, but the specifications aren't all that impressive.

  • Linux on ARMThe LLVM compiler infrastructure has now received support for the Cortex-A57, ARM's highest-end 64-bit AArch64 processor.

  • Linux on ARMARM and other Linux stakeholders are still working to bring power-aware scheduling to the kernel.

  • Linux on ARMBack in 2010, I wrote two articles about a SystemC model used to load the Linux kernel and its various artifacts into memory for ARM virtual platforms. The first was A SystemC TLM 2.0 ARM Linux Boot Loader and the second was More on the SystemC ARM Linux Boot Loader. At the time I covered the kernel, Linux kernel command line, and RAM-based file system.

  • Linux on ARMRob Clark of the fast-growing Freedreno project provided a status update earlier this week at the X.Org Developers' Conference concerning his open-source ARM Qualcomm graphics driver, the Lima driver for ARM' Mali, GRATE for NVIDIA's Tegra, and Etnaviv for Vivante graphics hardware.

  • Linux on ARMCAMBRIDGE, UK, September 24, 2013—Undo Software, a supplier of Linux and Android software development solutions, today announced that ARM has entered into an agreement to integrate UndoDB in its flagship software development tool suite, ARM® DS™-5 Development Studio.

  • Linux on ARMRecently I was asked to go and present on porting from 32-bit ARM to 64-bit ARM at Campus Party Europe at the O2 Arena in London. This occurred early in September and it can be watched on YouTube* and the slides are also available here.

  • Linux on ARMIt's been about 18 months since we last compared Linux/Arm JVMs, and with the formal release of the much anticipated Java SE Embedded for Arm hard float binary, it marks a good time to revisit JVM performance. The information and results that follow will highlight the following comparisons:

  • Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds, in response to a petition on Change.org to remove RdRand from /dev/random, has lambasted the petitioner by called him ignorant for not understanding the code in Linux Kernel.

  • Linux on ARMIn this article, I’m using raspberry pi hardware, and using pedora 32-bit target OS, Scientific Linux 6.1 64-bit as host OS, crosstool-ng as cross compiling tool. I will give a brief introduction steps about how to build binaries and shared/static libraries, and in the process, some building depends on third party libraries

  • 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 RocketBoards.org 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.
