  • Linaro brings Ice Cream Sandwich & Oneiric Ocelot together on ARM boards

    Linux on ARMOpen-source software engineering group Linaro has pushed out a build of Android Ice Cream Sandwich for low-cost development boards from Samsung and ST-Ericsson. The build supports hardware acceleration for Systems on a Chip utililzing ARM's Mali-400 graphics processor.

  • 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.

  • Slackware ARM

    Linux on ARMSlackware ARM (“ARMedslack”) is the official port of the Slackware® Linux distribution to the ARM architecture. Currently, the project focuses its efforts on supporting the most popular devices such as the Plug Computers, and can also be used under the QEMU emulator. Support for other devices will be added over time.

  • Linaro 11.11 Released

    Linux on ARMThe Linaro Team is pleased to announce the release of Linaro 11.11, another of Linaro's releases delivered on a monthly cadence.This release includes components delivered by all Linaro Teams: Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams. Some outstanding effort has gone into delivering a lot of exciting updates and features integrated on top of Android and Ubuntu.

  • ARM Linux Kernel Alignment & Benefits For Snowball - ELCE 2011

    Linux on ARMBy Andrea Gallo, ST-Ericsson, Chief Linux Architect in the Smartphone and Tablet Solution organization. - Last March, the ARM Linux community got shaken by the complaints by Linus Torvalds for its lack of proper structure and organisation. This is totally true and mainly due to the large number of different SoC vendors, each one integrating the ARM IP's in a slightly different variant.

  • ARM Linux Kernel Alignment & Benefits For Snowball

    Linux on ARMLast March, the ARM Linux community got shaken by the complaints by Linus Torvalds for its lack of proper structure and organisation. This is totally true and mainly due to the large number of different SoC vendors, each one integrating the ARM IP's in a slightly different variant. Linaro immediately accepted the challenge to drive the kernel alignment of the ARM community and most ARM Linux experts got together and agreed on the way forward as early as May 2011 at the Developers' summit in Budapest.

  • Consolidating Linux Power Management on ARM Multiprocessor Systems

    Linux on ARMThis talk highlights the effort, subtleties and details involved in creating a common Power Management (PM) framework for ARM SMP Linux kernel. Since different ARM System on Chips (SoCs) are implementing PM management hardware in custom ways, the kernel has to adapt the PM framework to HW needs.

  • Mad Dog 21/21: ARMs To Fare Well

    Linux on ARMSteve Jobs was such a captivating promoter of inventions that his products reshaped our thinking, defining or redefining products we once thought we fully understood. At his best, Jobs was almost too good. If Picasso were God all fish would be flounders. But the computer industry, like nature, fosters diversity. Apple's smart clients, the iPhone and iPad, are iconic devices built around systems-on-a-chip (SoCs), but they are not the only important applications of this technology. Servers, too, can be made from compact, efficient, and inexpensive SoCs. And they will prove to be exceedingly disruptive.

  • 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.

  • Applied Micro X-Gene 64-Bit ARMv8 Server-on-Chip Presentation

    Linux on ARMApplied Micro Showcases World’s First 64-bit ARMv8 Core at ARM Techcon 2011, Santa Clara California. The day ARM announced the first 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set architecture, AppliedMicro unveiled the launch of the industry’s first 64-bit ARM “Server-on-a-Chip” solution.

  • AppliedMicro Showcases World's First 64-bit ARM v8 Core

    Linux on ARMDemonstration runs 64-bit Linux on newest ISA-based processor architecture to provide pre-silicon evaluation benchmarks for early customer engagements - SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, or AppliedMicro, today demonstrated core functionality of the world's first 64-bit ARM processor on an FPGA platform during ARM TechCon 2011.

  • Samsung Works On More Upstream ARM Linux Kernel Support

    Linux on ARMIt seems that Samsung is quite interested in pushing upstream Linux kernel support for their ARM-based Exynos 4210 SoC. Besides pushing an open-source DRM kernel graphics driver, they have been working on other areas of upstream Linux kernel support for this SoC that employs a dual-core Cortex A9.

  • ARM SoC's Hodgepodge or Great Innovation & Diversity?

    Linux on ARMLast week it was reported that Linus Torvalds described the ARM SoC (System on Chip) ecosystem as a "Hodgepodge, " with the article then going on to imply that the diversity and innovation in how an ARM SoC is implemented makes it very difficult to implement Linux on ARM. I have a slightly different take on it.

  • First Linaro Connect Event Enhances Device Tree Support to Accelerate Development of Linux on ARM

    Linux on ARMCAMBRIDGE, UK- August 23rd, 2011- More than 150 Linux engineers gathered in Cambridge this month to collaborate on the development of Linux on ARM at the first quarterly LinaroTM Connect event. Linaro, the not-for-profit open source software engineering company founded by ARM, IBM, TI, Samsung, Freescale and ST-Ericsson is working on consolidation and optimization of Linux on ARM SoCs.
