  • Linux on ARMAcme Systems has opened pre-orders at 10 Euros ($14) for a tiny DIY-oriented module called the Arietta G25 built around Atmel’s 400MHz ARM9 SAM9G25 SoC.

  • Linux on ARMGeniatech engineer shows how they support dual-booting to some basic Linux from the SD card on several of the Geniatech Android Set-top-boxes, going back to their single-core AmLogic M3 based Set-top-boxes and also to their new ones.

  • Linux on ARMVirtual machines are usually run on server or desktop PC to run several operating systems simultaneous. About 2 years ago, I wrote about an embedded hypervisor running Linux and Android on the Pandaboard develompent board, with the goal of separating home and enterprise operating systems in mobile devices so that enterprise data is safe.

  • Linux on ARMMontaVista Software (http://mvista.com) was founded in 1999 to bring the Linux operating system to the embedded device market. From the beginning the goal has been to embrace fully Open Source. MontaVista delivered their first commercial Linux for the embedded market in 1999 and hasn't looked back since.

  • Linux on ARMBuilding on top of it ARMADA 1500 SoC for Google TV, Marvell has recently announced the ARMADA 1500 Plus (88DE3108) HD secure media processor SoCdesigned for smart video products based on Android 4.2.2, and Linux, such as media players, OTT boxes, hybrid set-top boxes and smart TVs.

  • Linux on ARMCloud Media is mostly known for their Linux based Pop Corn Hour media players. but recently they started offered a free media player called FreeOTT via ISPs or Facebook giveaways. This little box gives direct access to online video channels. I reviewed FreeOTT a few months ago, and found the interface to be sluggish (possibly because of my Internet connection), audio was not working on my TV.

  • Linux on ARMFaraday Technology has begun shipping a system-on-chip dev kit aimed at developers of custom SoCs. The “SoCreative! IV” kit’s baseboard is built around Faraday’s A380 SoC, which boasts a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, a Faraday-developed RISC core, and a high speed expansion bus for interfacing with FPGA daughtercards, and comes with Linux 3.3 and Android 4.x BSPs.

  • Linux on ARMAxiomtek released two rugged, Linux-ready box computers with IP40 compliance, anti-vibration support, and extended temperature ranges. The tiny rBOX610 is a din-rail computer built around a Freescale ARM9-based i.MX287 processor, featuring CAN buses and isolated Fast Ethernet ports, while the eBOX660-872-FL offers 3rd generation Intel Core processors, four gig-Ethernet ports, and dual display support.

  • Linux on ARMMentor Graphics announced a small-footprint hypervisor designed for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and automotive telematics systems that use its Linux-, Android-, Nucleus-, and AUTOSAR-based automotive middleware. Mentor Embedded Hypervisor supports single- or multi-core AMP and SMP architectures, as well as ARM TrustZone security technology, and can partition devices and memory to prevent unauthorized access.

  • Linux on ARMWind River has expanded the hardware support in its embedded Linux for the latest ARM, Intel, MIPS, and Power architectures as well as updating the kernel, toolchain, and user space for the latest Yocto Project release.

  • Linux on ARMISEE announced a highly compact single board computer powered by a 2GHz dual-core Cortex-A15 based Texas Instruments OMAP5432 system-on-chip. The IGEPv5 SBC ships with a Yocto-built Linux stack, but also supports Android, and is packed with I/O including five USB ports, mSATA, microSD, HDMI, DisplayPort, audio in/out, gigabit Ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth wireless, and more.

  • Linux on ARMPicUntu is a custom version of Ubuntu Linux designed to run on TV boxes and other devices with Rockchip’s ARM-based processors. Now it’s easier to install than ever, offering a way to turn a cheap Android TV box into a full-fledged Linux computer.

  • Linux on ARMHave an Android tablet or TV box with a Rockchip RK3188 processor, and wish it ran a desktop operating system rather than a mobile OS? A new build of PicUntu is available, bringing the full Ubuntu Linux experience to devices with RK3188 processors.

  • Linux on ARMCritical Link announced a tiny, Linux-ready, SODIMM-style module based on the Altera Cyclone V SX-U672 ARM/FPGA SoC. The MityARM-5CSX builds on the Cyclone V’s mix of FPGA logic and dual-core 800MHz ARM Cortex-A9 processing power, adding two GigE channels, a PCI Express bus, and 145 GPIO lines.

  • 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 ARMCrystalfontz America, a supplier of LCD and OLED display modules used in embedded systems, has launched a Kickstarter campaignto fund manufacturing and lower the cost of a system-on-module powered by Freescale i.MX28 featuring a small 128×32 OLED display, and lots of GPIOs.

  • Linux on ARMThe Baserock™ Slab is a multi-processor server featuring 8 quad-core ARMv7-A CPUs running at 1.33GHz and an on-board high-speed network switch fabric with 5Gbit/s between the CPUs and 2x10Gbit/s external. Each compute node gets additional performance with its own dedicated low-latency mSATA solid state drive.

  • Linux on ARMVIA Technologies has announced the VIA VAB-800 Pico-ITX board powered by a Freescale i.MX537 (ARM Cortex A8) processor clocked at 800MHz or 1GHz depending on the requirements, with 1GB DDR3-800 SDRAM and support for eMMC Flash with a capacity of up to 64 GB. The VIA VAB-800 is an industrial board that can operate in a wide temperature range and targets high-end industrial and in-vehicle embedded applications.

  • Linux on ARMWith the development of computer, embedded system has become an important part of computer science and researching focus. Porting embedded OS and developing driver are popular now and there has lots of job at the real industry area. Porting ARMLinux and writing drivers based on S3CEB2410 board is studied in this paper. ARM926T is an efficient low-power RISC core.

  • Linux on ARMIn this video I extend my series on introducing the Beaglebone and developing applications using embedded Linux to demonstrate how we can build an application that uses its GPIOs (General Purpose Input/Outputs).
