  • One Linux for all ARM systems

    Linux on ARMARM processors and Linux have been married for years. You name an ARM-based device - smartphones, Raspberry Pi, tablets - and you'll find Linux running beside it. It's not been a happy marriage though. For every ARM system on a chip (SoC) there had to be a different Linux spin. With the forthcoming Linux 3.7 kernel we're on our way to seeing all ARM processors working with a single Linux kernel.

  • With Linux kernel 3.7 one build will support many ARM SoCs

    Linux on ARMA recent code commit has revealed an interesting feature in the upcoming Linux kernel 3.7 that will allow it to support multiple ARM platforms out of the box. This brings ARM more in line with x86 builds where multiple processors are supported on a single kernel build.

  • Linux on Arm conference prepares to kick off

    Linux on ARMBack in the day, everything was all about DOS or CPM on Z-80. That was replaced by an era of Windows on Intel, but on 28th May the new world order prepares to feel smug and enjoy the new noodles in Hong Kong. KitGuru prepares to check into the Gold Coast Hotel and tries to gauge which way the South China ASIC Sea is flowing.

  • Ubuntu 12.04 ARM Performance Becomes Very Compelling

  • 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.

  • TI OMAP4660 ARM Cortex-A9 PandaBoard ES Benchmarks
