  • Raspberry Pi with a week to go

    Linux on ARMRaspberry Pi has been designed to inspire a new generation of teenage computer programmers, by a team of Cambridge entrepreneurs and academics frustrated by the lack of computer science talent emerging from schools. Much awaited, it should be availble in the next week or so.

  • Raspberry Pi Linux Distribution: Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix 14

    Linux on ARMSeveral operating systems will be able to run on the Raspberry Pi boards.  However, the Raspberry Foundation had announced that they were working with Red Hat to deliver a Fedora release optimized for the board and Broadcom BCM2835 processor (ARMv6 + hard-float support).

  • Raspberry Pi's Nonchalant Graphics Stack For Linux

    Linux on ARMMany were talking yesterday about why the forthcoming $25/$35 Raspberry Pi system won't ship in kit form, but of more interest to Phoronix readers out of that blog post would be the details concerning their Linux graphics driver stack and what they will be supporting.

  • Linux Kernel 3.1.9 for Raspberry Pi Released

    Linux on ARMRaspberry Pi has just announced the release of a fork a linux kernel 3.1.9. The source code with patches is available at https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux. If you just want to download the patch, I’ve created one: r-pi_linux_3.1.9.patch.gz

  • Raspberry Pi's $35, 700MHz Linux computer enters manufacturing

    Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi Foundation announced this week that its $35 Linux computer has entered the manufacturing stage. The system, which is an open board with a 700MHz ARM11 CPU and 256MB of RAM, could be available for sale within a matter of weeks.

  • Linux for Cortex M3 & M4 Microcontrollers

    Linux on ARMThere are plenty of low cost Linux development boards based on Cortex A8 or A9 such as the Beaglebone, as well as some devkits based on ARM7 and ARM9 such as SAM9 development kits , but if your application is cost sensitive you can also switch to micro-controllers using Cortex M3 or M4 based development boards such as Emcraft SmartFusion devkits. You can run a functional uCLinux system with 1MB of RAM and 1MB of flash including the TCP/IP stack.

  • $25 Raspberry Pi PC nears launch

    Linux on ARM2011 was a remarkable year for technology. The rise of Android helped spread the adoption of smartphones; the iPad continued to dominate the tablet space, amid rumblings that we were entering a new post-PC era; and the cost of devices continued to fall, with Amazon launching its Kindle Fire tablet in the US for $199, and India seeing the launch of an Android tablet for just $35.

  • 15 USD ARM Cortex A8 Linux Computer by Rhombus Tech

    Linux on ARMMany of you already probably know about the Raspberry Pi Foundation 25 USD ARM Linux Computer. Rhombus Tech, another non-profit organization, is planning to design a 15 USD ARM Linux computer (excluding casing, power supply, shipping, VAT and custom duties) that the company claims would be at least 3 times faster that the Raspberry Pi.

  • ARM Computer Is Credit Card-Sized, Plays 1,080p Video and Runs Linux

    Linux on ARMIt might not exactly be quite as small as the idea originally intended, but the Raspberry Pi will probably make jaws drop regardless. The idea used to be for a flash drive-sized computer, but the concept has since evolved, somewhat grown in size, but not by much.

  • Super Tiny Computer Puts Android on Your TV, Laptop

    Linux on ARMEarly this year we got to see, through ARM-powered devices such as the Motorola Atrix, that it doesn't take even a netbook to run basic computing functions. At a live demonstration in New York City, FXI Technologies showed off the next evolution of that idea: an ARM-based computer on a USB stick without any of that extra smartphone or tablet baggage.

  • USB stick packs ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, runs Android or Ubuntu

    Linux on ARMFXI Technologies announced a USB stick-sized computer that can run Android or Ubuntu on a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor. The "Cotton Candy" will include 1GB of RAM, a microSD slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an HDMI port, the company says.

  • Cotton Candy

    Linux on ARMThe Cotton Candy is a USB stick sized compute device allows users a single, secure point of access to all personal cloud services and apps through their favorite operating system, while delivering a consistent experience on any screen. The device will serve as a companion to smartphones, tablets, and notebook PC and Macs, as well add smart capabilities to existing displays, TVs, set top boxes and other media that supports USB mass storage.

  • Say Hello to BeagleBone: A Preview

    Linux on ARMIt's no secret that ARM-based SoCs are advancing at an incredible rate compared to x86 CPUs.  While ARM ratchets up the performance on the high end with multi-core architectures like the Cortex A9 and Cortex A15, which rivals and in many cases exceed the performance on low-power x86 chips, licensees such as TI have created full-featured SoCs at single-digit prices, enabling new low-power devices at tiny price points.

  • Britain’s $25 computer is coming by Christmas

    Linux on ARMEarlier this year British games pioneer David Braben surprised many people with the first appearance of the Raspberry Pi, a low-cost, open source computer aimed at children that he was helping to develop.

  • Fedora-ARM on the Raspberry Pi (Seneca CDOT)

    Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi is a $25/$35 computer based on a Broadcom ARM chip. The Fedora ARM secondary architecture project has ported the Fedora Linux distribution to ARM-based devices. Faculty and students at Seneca College involved with the Fedora ARM project are configuring and optimizing it to work with the Raspberry Pi.

  • £15 ARM Linux computer before Christmas

    Linux on ARMThe RaspberryPi Foundation, which aims to put computers in front of children for £15, has taken delivery of 50 engineering prototypes, and intends to get the final version to customers by the end of the year. Based in Cambridge and founded by six high-tech high-flyers, the foundation’s aim is to cure the programmer shortage by inspiring people to take up computing in childhood - as Sinclair Spectrums and BBC Micros once did.
